Remdesivir--Interview Got it Right
Ardis' description of the toxic effects of Remdesivir are established. As early as November 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) determined that there was no evidence that Remdesivir ever improved COVID outcomes. They recommended against the use of Remdesivir regardless of disease severity. But the expensive drug was pushed by Dr. Fauci and he was able to downplay its harmful effects in mainstream media sources. Currently, the drug enjoys unwavering support from the medical establishment as the only antiviral remedy for treatment of COVID in most hospitals. But honest nurses have nicknamed Remdesivir with the phrase 'Run Death is Near.' The vast majority of patients die on day 9 of the administration of this toxic concoction.

Problems with Snake Venom Hypothesis
After speaking about Remdesivir, Ardis launches into his hypothesis that snake venom (from cobras or krait snakes in China) delivered via public waterways is the real source of COVID 19. Many of his points are interesting and true, but there are also some significant problems. For example, Ardis makes a connection between monoclonal antibodies to argue that since they are an effective treatment against COVID AND snake venom, that "monoclonal antibodies are anti-venom." This statement is not completely true. Monoclonal antibodies are specific proteins that can bind with many different targets including active proteins in snake venom. Anti-venom is a monoclonal antibody. But not all monoclonal antibodies are anti-venom. Just because monoclonal antibodies can neutralize the effects of many different peptides doesn't mean they all share a common origin, i.e., snake venom. So, his argument breaks down.
D-Dimer and Ventilator Issues
Other problems involve the D-Dimer test used to determine if a patient is suffering with clotting disorders. The D-Dimer can be elevated in people suffering from a snake-bite but also can come from deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, and strokes. Therefore, an elevated D-Dimer does not necessarily mean COVID is caused by snake venom. In addition, Ardis speculated that because snake venom paralyzes muscles in the diaphragm responsible for breathing, medical personnel were causing the death of COVID patients by administering the drugs needed to sedate patients when they are put on a ventilator. It is true that ventilators did not help COVID patients and many died. But it is a far reach to suggest that it was snake venom causing paralysis of the diaphragm and not nerve paralysis involving the brainstem.
