The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) announced in a press release on Tuesday that its Co-Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Paul Marik, has filed a lawsuit against Sentara Healthcare System, located in Virginia and North Carolina, saying the hospital has implemented a policy which prevents him and other physicians from administering “safe and effective” medications and treatments for Covid-19 patients.

In April of this year, Sentara Healthcare was named one of the top five largest U.S. health systems.

Dr. Paul Marik practices Critical Care Medicine for Sentara at EVMS Pulmonary and Critical Care located in Norfolk, VA.

“My hands were tied. I was not permitted to give my patients the medications I believed would save them. So 100% of them died,” Dr. Marik has stated, explaining why he filed suit against Sentara Health System for banning drugs he needed to save critically ill C19 patients.

READ THE PRESS RELEASE BELOW, dated November 9, 2021:

Washington, DC – Paul Marik, MD, one of the most highly published critical care physicians in the world and the Director of the ICU at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, was recently told by Sentara Healthcare that he could no longer administer a range of highly effective COVID-19 treatments to critically ill patients—the same treatments he has successfully used to reduce COVID deaths in the ICU by as much as 50%. The result of the prohibition has been a sharp increase in patient mortality. Because Dr. Marik can no longer stand by while patients needlessly die without proper treatment, he has filed a lawsuit to allow him and his colleagues to administer the combination of FDA-approved drugs and other therapies that has saved thousands of critically ill COVID-19 patients in the last 18 months.

The Complaint filed today in the Circuit Court for the City of Norfolk, Virginia states that Sentara Healthcare is “preventing terminally ill COVID patients from exercising their right to choose and to receive safe, potentially life-saving treatment determined to be appropriate for them by their attending physician.” Under Virginia law, every patient has the right to receive treatment deemed appropriate for them by their attending physician, and terminally ill patients have the right to try investigational medicines that their treating physician recommends. Through its arbitrary prohibition of the COVID-19 treatment protocol developed by Dr. Marik and his colleagues, Sentara is violating the law and unjustly depriving critically ill patients of lifesaving treatment.

“This case is about doctors, having the ability to honor their Hippocratic Oath, to follow evidence-based medicine, and to treat our patients the best we know how. Corporations and faceless bureaucrats should not be allowed to interfere with doctor-patient decisions, especially when it can result in harm or death.” according to Paul Marik, MD, chief, Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School, who practices in the Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. “I refuse to watch another patient die from COVID-19 knowing that I was not allowed to give them proven treatments that could have saved their life.”

According to an accompanying declaration from a renowned critical care specialist recently recognized by the United Nations for his life-saving work, Joseph Varon, MD, the COVID-19 treatment protocol developed by Dr. Marik and his colleagues, called the “MATH+ Protocol,” has achieved at least a 50% reduction in deaths from the virus in the hospitals where he serves as Chief of Staff.

“The Sentara Healthcare System’s prohibition of the MATH+ protocol is a threat to every doctor and every patient in the U.S.,” said Pierre Kory, president and chief medical officer of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC). “We know the protocol is effective. Patients who could have been saved by MATH+ are dying because of the hospital’s baseless restriction. We will continue to see more deaths that could have been prevented until the court takes action and orders the hospital to reverse course.”

The MATH+ protocol has been used all over the world to effectively treat patients with COVID-19. It is generally well-tolerated with no reports of adverse medical events. In its September 27 memo to employees, Sentara Healthcare System tried to justify prohibiting many of medications in the MATH+ protocol by claiming it “is not supported in peer-reviewed, published RCTs,” (Randomized Controlled Trials). However, this claim is demonstrably false. Peer-reviewed published RCTs do support the use many of the medications Sentara has prohibited, including fluvoxamine and ivermectin.

“The FLCCC stands behind Paul 100%,” said Dr. Kory. “We take an oath as doctors to do no harm. I can’t think of a way of doing more harm to a patient than to not administer a treatment that you know can help them. No doctor should be forced to watch their patient die knowing that more could have been done to save them and that is exactly what Sentara is doing.”

About the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance:

The FLCCC Alliance was organized in March 2020 by a group of highly published, world renowned Critical Care physician/scholars – with the academic support of allied physicians from around the world – to research and develop lifesaving protocols for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 in all stages of illness. Their MATH+ Hospital Treatment Protocol – introduced in March 2020, has saved thousands of patients who were critically ill with COVID-19. Now, the FLCCC’s new I-Mask+ Prophylaxis and Early At-Home Outpatient Treatment Protocol with Ivermectin has been released – and is a potential solution to the global pandemic. For more information:

Dr. Robert Malone, an inventor of vaccines, tweeted a copy of the press release on Wednesday, and wrote, “World’s Leading ICU Doctor Files Lawsuit Against Hospital System After Being Barred from Administering Safe and Effective COVID-19 Treatments A Virginia Physician has been prohibited from using safe and time-honored medications in hospital while deaths from COVID-19 continue.”

“Another hospital hunting physicians who try to save their patients by administering lifesaving therapy. All we need is court allowance of legal discovery, and then this whole house of cards will fall,” he added.

Dr. Trudy Seivwright also commented on the lawsuit, tweeting, “Do we all realize that this is true bravery? This is a brilliant and often vilified doctor who is falling on the sword for people he does not know (his patients). He’s like a soldier or a policeman. He’s the type on man I truly respect. May God bless Dr Paul.”

In September, WTKR News published a report about Dr. Marik’s Covid-19 treatment.

  1. #CrimesAgainstHumanity #PureEvil This entire country has been captured and corrupted by evil. Every institution is evil. And they are working against the American people not for them. Will anyone ever pay for these crimes!? Denying health care ans life saving medications!?

  2. Ooo, let’s go! And while your at it, find out the individual(s) that coerced hospitals to comply, in banning theses safe and effective protocols!

  3. It’s not just this hospital. There are others. The CDC protocol prevents doctors from treating their patients the way they should. Theses hospitals are being paid for every death from Covid. The more people who die from it the more money they make. There are patients that didn’t even die from it that are being marked as Covid deaths. Now is the time for every doctor who has had their hands tied to come forward and jump on this suit to put these hospitals in their place. Every person who lost a loved one should sue them. Take all that money from those hospitals that made money off their family members deaths. Doctors have been cornered to keep their mouths shut and some have lost their jobs including their licenses. Rather than heal patients with drugs that will save them they let them die. That’s murder. They should pay. I hope every person here shares this information so that we can bring it to the attention of ever American so they can see what this corrupt administration is doing to the people. The media won’t share it. So let’s put it out there. It’s time to stop the jabs, as it is another lie to kill this country.

  4. Now all you other p***y whipped Drs get on board and stand your ground !!!! Hundreds of Thousands of people would be alive now if the right medication was used !!!! Or maybe your licenses should be revoked for killing them !!!!! Malpractice .

  5. I remember at the beginning how there was an FDA approved medication that front line doctors were approving for helping Covid patients but politicians & Governors were banning their use fueled by the Marxist Media! They all have blood on their hands for the deaths they created!

  6. Thank God, someone has finally stepped up and not let the government dictation medical treatment for Covid 19, when most could have been effectively treated in the office before symptoms severe.
    See Dr.Hatfiell.
    We all knew this that is out there treating patients and maybe now Fauci and Gates house of cards will fall.
    Dallas is a good place to start . Dr.McCullough, many others .

  7. My brother was recently hospitalized with COVID. They administered a therapy and that day there was an immediate turnaround. His spiking fever came down, was 103/104, his blood pressure came down and it was extremely high, and his kidney function also became close to normal. He is not sure what it was since he was delirious, and he can’t remember. He’s still extremely fatigued. He had zero lung issues (strange f’ing virus, no rhyme or reason). Hospital stay was 4 days. I’m just glad they treated him with whatever life saving drug/s they administered. So many can’t say that there loved one came home.

  8. God bless Dr Marik and give him success. The large hospital organization that has major investments in more than a dozen counties in the area that I live in, along with CVS and Walgreens, has also made several life saving medicines like these unavailable. Maybe Dr Marik will be successful in starting the house of cards to tumble.

  9. Drug companies need the money. Cant let drs use medicine that dont cost thousands of dollars. Its all money. Your polititions are using your tax dollars to get their drug companys stock up and get all their kickbacks!

  10. The deep state will never let this law suit go through because it will open them to be sued by the families who have had members die. This has happened everywhere in America and all of the hospitals need pharmacies and drug companies are involved. This is a crime against humanity. The only way this will get won is for more doctors to stand up.

  11. I hope he wins this case, because we all know they’re doing it ! They will get their Judgement in the afterlife, but I want to see them pay a little for the evil they’ve done to my fellow Americans while I’m still alive !

  12. I pray Dr Marik wins this case! Thank goodness there are brave doctors willing to put their reputations on the line to treat their patients with life-saving medications. I hope that hospital & others doing the same thing get sued for failure to administer that Math+ protocol!

  13. Sure seems like keeping the WU-flu mortality rates “high” (if we only knew what the true mortality rate is) is part of the narrative. Sick SOBs in this country. Hopefully this legal action gains traction but just like everything else that has happened over the last 19 months, I have serious doubts that it will.

  14. So here it is a Doctor that put his life on the line during the Pandemic treating patients for COVID-19 used these same medicines to save people. The Health Care Co. now goes not want the Doctors to have access to the same medication to now save patients‼️ It’s absolutely nuts m as yes no sense.. now think about why Pharmaceutical Companies that
    are pushing their Vaccines for the Biden Mandates‼️ Not hard to figure out people wake the hell up NOW‼️‼️
