Explosive information about Aaron Glatt, who in March 2020 was hired by Nassau County Executive Laura Curran to be a “liaison for Orthodox Jewish communities”, which in plain English means he works for the government to run around pushing their agenda to get the shots, etc. Can there by any greater, more open conflict of interest that would immediately discredit a rabbi from espousing the supposed Torah view?
Here’s what I received just now. After reading this I find it amusing that the fake rabbis call people like ME a rodef.
Several months ago, Rabbi Dr. Aaron Glatt and Mount Sinai Hospital of South Nassau (where he is the Chair of Department of Medicine), blocked a prescription for Ivermectin for a dying COVID patient (Deborah Bucko), who became progressively ill under their care, that was prescribed by an infectious disease doctor there as an emergency measure. Deborah’s husband, Scott Mantel, had to sue three times to force Glatt and the hospital to allow it. The court forced them the first two times, in which Glatt and the hospital only allowed the treatment for 5 days each, even though Dr. Pierre Kory demonstrated that her prognosis was improving while on the treatment. Deborah Bucko, a 52 year-old wife and mother of two, died while her husband was trying for a third time to get ivermectin.
The link to Scott Mantel’s original affidavit pleading with the court to force them not to block the emergency prescription can be found here.
The link to Dr. Pierre Kory’s response to Dr. Glatt, in which among other things, he details numerous errors, inaccuracies, and misrepresentations made by Glatt in his explanation of why he is blocking the prescription (Glatt’s explanation can’t be seen, as the hospital requested restricted status) can be found here.
Two articles that discuss this story:
Rabbi Dr. Glatt is arguably the most influential “expert” in COVID-related matters for the Orthodox Jewish community in the US. You can hardly escape his opinions published in newspapers, his recommendations of (draconian) shul COVID policies/school reopening policies, or his actual assistance in drafting such policies. Yet he denied a safe emergency treatment to a critically ill patient, despite evidence provided of effectiveness. Furthermore, as Scott Mantel showed in his exhibits, several other hospitals were sued for the same thing, and those critical patients improved under continuing ivermectin treatment. Gee, I wonder why people don’t trust the medical establishment.
In conclusion, this case raises serious questions of both ethics and trustworthiness in modern orthodoxy’s main “expert” in this area. Why should anyone trust anything that comes out of the mouth of someone who fights family, doctors, and courts, to purposely withdraw potentially life saving treatment seemingly for the sake of politics? Only the willfully blind and ignorant could trust such a person.
Here is a link to a meta-analysis by Theresa Lawrie, MBBCh, PHD, who consults for the W.H.O., that concludes with “moderate certainty,” that Ivermectin prevents and treats COVID-19.
