Things continue to get weirder here in Hawaii, although we honestly look to come around this curve again and are starting to see rays of light at the end of this second dark Covid tunnel.
The state health department’s senior medical advisor on Maui has recommended the primarily horse worming purposed drug Ivermectin and the anti-malarial hydroxychloroquine as treatments and for prevention for Covid, and as viable alternatives to vaccination.
The Hawaii senator from Maui, Rosalyn Baker, however, has asked that Dr. Lorrin Pang be fired or resign immediately. This is being brought to discussion on the state senate floor today. In addition, she has called for the revocation of his medical license as a result.
Baker said, “if he (Dr. Pang) is recommending that people take things that the FDA has said are potentially lethal if you ingest them, and that are not efficacious in treating Covid-19, then he should not be practicing medicine. He should not be representing the Department of Health. He should not be stationed in Maui.”
The chief of the Hawaii Department of Health, Dr. Libby Char, also castigated Pang and the Pono Coalition group he founded for perpetuating misinformation. Char didn’t go so far as to say he will be fired yet. She said last night, “The Pono Coalition for Informed Consent is spreading misinformation about these lifesaving vaccines. This is dangerous. The Coalition proliferates misinformation about the severity of the disease and the safety of the vaccines.”
Dr. Char emphasized that hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin should not be used to treat Covid-19 and that their use can cause serious harm.
Meanwhile, Dr. Pang confirmed to news sources that he does, in fact, support the drugs (Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine) to treat and prevent Covid. However, he indicated that he doesn’t necessarily support all the views of his organization, which included claims that the vaccines can cause miscarriages.
This week, it is being reported that poison control centers nationally are receiving a huge uptick in ivermectin-related poisoning. However, it should be noted that the NIH is funding a trial of multiple drugs for the treatment of Covid, which does include ivermectin.

Josh Green, MD, in a statement, indicated he is troubled by Pang. Green said, “I have deep concerns about what the Maui district health officer said… because we have to follow science and be supportive of science.”
