NAPERVILLE, IL – A COVID-19 patient at Edward Hospital who was given ivermectin following a lawsuit is now breathing unaided, the Daily Herald reports, his lawyers said. Lawyers at the hospital claim that Ng improved before treatment.
At the beginning of November, Judge Paul Fullerton ordered that Dr. Alan Bain, who is not vaccinated against the coronavirus, is allowed to cometo Sun Ng, 71, a Hong Kong resident who was hospitalized with coronavirus on October 14.
Ng was placed on a ventilator four days later.
According to a press release from Dr. Ng’s attorneys sued Ng’s daughter, Dr. Man Kwan Ng Edward-Elmhurst Health after the hospital denied her application to allow her father to receive ivermectin.
According to the Daily Herald, the family’s lawyers said that Sun Ng was given ivermectin for five days. After the treatment, the lawyers said Ng had removed his breathing tube and was taken from the intensive care unit.
Joseph Monahan, an attorney representing Edward Hospital, countered that Ng had improved prior to the administration of ivermectin. “Monahan also said the hospital could not confirm the contents of the drug they were given because the doctor obtained it online from India,” reports the Daily Herald.
Ng and Edward Hospital lawyers did not immediately respond to Patch’s request for more information and comment on Wednesday afternoon.
