Illinois family credits Ivermectin with saving life of father hospitalized with COVID-19
Local family wins legal battle to have Ivermectin administered to ailing grandfather.
Attorney Kristin Erickson talks about a family’s battle to get a Naperville hospital to administer Ivermectin to their ailing grandfather.
NAPERVILLE, Ill. – An Illinois family whose loved one was “desperately ill” and hospitalized earlier this month with COVID-19 says he’s now home and doing well after a judge had to order a Naperville hospital to treat him with Ivermectin.
On Nov. 8, the family won a legal battle to gain approval to administer the controversial drug to 71-year-old Sun Ng, who had been on a ventilator since October 19.
Sun Ng came to the Chicago area from Hong Kong to visit his daughter and her family. He contracted COVID and within days was on a ventilator at Edward Hospital in Naperville.
His daughter, Dr. Man Kwan Ng, was desperate. She wanted the hospital to try Ivermectin, but they refused based on various national medical guidelines, which suggest the drug is ineffective.
“Mr. Ng is as good as dead in the picture, which was taken on November 4. And at that point the hospital still wouldn’t give the Ivermectin,” said family attorney Kirstin Erickson.
