Exonerated! In France, One Persecuted Doctor Triumphs Over Covid Repression
PARIS—A prominent French physician has won a stunning victory against charges that he denigrated official covid policies, with the French Order of Physicians holding that he was in fact obliged to speak out.
In its ruling, the French governing body for doctors found that Christian Perronne, 67, acted in the best interest of citizens and his profession in critiquing covid treatments and vaccines on social media, in national television interviews, and in a best-selling book.
“Dr. Perronne, an internationally recognized expert in the field of infectious diseases, was best placed to understand public health issues,” the translated decision stated. “If he spoke in the press about the action of the government and the pharmaceutical industry—as he was legitimate to do and even had the obligation to do so in this area which fell within his competence—he confined himself to publicly, but without invective, a discordant voice on a subject of general interest.”
In March 2020, as covid was exploding, Perronne emailed me a hugely encouraging study by Dr. Didier Raoult on successful treatment of covid with an old antimalarial drug, hydroxychloroquine. We both thought covid could quickly be tamed. But when President Trump “fast-tracked” the drug a day after my article on Forbes.com, the safe, generic treatment began a slow and tragic slide toward mainstream ridicule and rejection.
Perronne went on to sharply criticize the French government’s covid approach, including in a highly successful book entitled Is there a mistake THEY didn’t make?: COVID-19: the sacred union of incompetence and arrogance. The book, and statements Perronne made in a whirlwind of media interviews, soon got him into trouble with French medical authorities, which he believes was at the behest of French President Emmanuel Macron.
“At the beginning I understood things were going in the wrong way,” Perronne told me. Having served for a decade as overseer, variously, of the nation’s communicable disease, health security, and vaccine review commissions, “I think I knew how to manage such problems.”
Among Perronne’s other qualifications, he was vice president of the European Technical Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization for six years, which provides independent review and expertise on vaccines for the World Health Organization. (See link for article)
You may recognize this doctor as I’ve posted about him before as he is an outspoken critic of how Lyme/MSIDS is being handled: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/03/15/french-government-announces-support-for-doctor-discretion-in-treating-lyme-msids/
He is also wildly critical of how COVID has been handled calling it “completely stupid and unethical”: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2021/08/19/covid-policy-is-completely-stupid-unethical-states-frances-vaccine-policy-chief-who-was-recently-fired-for-stating-this/
“I’m very worried because we know that some people died a few days or a few weeks after the injection,” he said, adding that he personally knows of three deaths of young people, 17 to 20 years old. Add to that heart problems, strokes, excess non-covid deaths, possible sterility, and cancer.
“I have no scientific proof but what I can see from the U.S., different countries, and France, many oncologists are saying we never saw such a huge amount of cancer cases,” he told me. “Unfortunately, I don’t think all the statistics are reliable today, but it’s a signal.”
He has written a followup book titled Decidedly, THEY still haven’t understood anything!
Like so many other Lyme literate doctors Perronne was attacked simply for thinking for himself. The establishment has an accepted narrative and woe to anyone who does not blindly parrot that narrative. My own doctor was similarly attacked and had to spend nearly $50K to defend his medical practice which is why most LLMDs do not accept insurance as its often the insurance companies that turn these doctors in. Important quote:
“When a doctor runs out of money, his lawyers ask him to settle and stipulate and admit to certain things (he’s) done ‘wrong.’ The burden of proof is on the doctor, even when there are no complaints from patients.” ~ Dr. Robert Waters
