Comments concerning this legislation
First, who defines misinformation? The language in this bill is much too broad and would punish doctors who are not following a government approved healthcare protocol even though their treatments are resulting in a nearly 100% recovery rate.
The fact is that during the last two years, many have died from COVID while following the treatment that was approved by the majority of the scientific community and used by many in the medical community. Go home and come back when you are sicker was the advice. Yet at the same time, other doctors were prescribing early treatment and advising not to wait until symptoms worsened. Rather, start treatment within seven days after symptoms develop. Starting treatment within three days following symptoms is even better they were saying.
Despite having a nearly 100% success rate with next to no COVID related deaths, they were harshly criticized by most scientists, much of the medical community and nearly all of the press because their treatments were not following government protocols.
So, is the goal to make legislation forcing doctors and health care workers to only follow government guidelines or is our goal to let doctors and health care workers heal people?
Some say that AB 2098 is only about vaccines but if that is true, then it should be rewritten to say so.
As written, AB 2098 is about government medicine with no second opinions allowed. Californians deserve better than this.
