Harare Doctor Accused Of Injecting Animal Medicines Into Humans

Harare Doctor Accused Of Injecting Animal Medicines Into Humans

A Harare doctor Jack Stone has appeared before the courts accused of injecting animal medicines into humans during the peak of COVID-19 in Zimbabwe.

It is alleged that there was no clinical evidence that the medicine is safe and effective, according to NewZimbabwe.com.

Stone, who is allegedly advocating a combination of therapy for patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19, appeared Thursday before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi.

However, Stone defended herself, stating that she was given approval by the Medical Research Council of Zimbabwe to treat people, but the issue was that “some members in the medical sector are very conservative and they do not want any change”.

Her lawyer said Stone was experienced to an extent that fears regarding her operations should be cleared.

Stone got in trouble after a letter of complaint was written to the Registrar of Medical and Dental Professional Council of Zimbabwe and signed by Rashida Ferrand, a Professor of International Health, several experts and other health professionals who complained Stone’s actions needed urgent review.

They also want her fitness to continue practising in the country reviewed.

However, and led by her lawyer, Stone told the court that “I graduated with an MBCH first class degree in 1999”. She told the court:

I also have a traditional healer’s practicing licence. l did my internship in South Africa because of the lack of resources in Zimbabwe. l have 35 years of practising as a health practitioner and have 6 publications so far.

This is the third pandemic l have encountered as a health practitioner. Some members in the medical sector are very conservative and they do not want any change.

Stone said between December 2020 and January 2021, there was so much chaos after many medical practitioners closed shop and ignored calls while people were dying in car parks and at home.

She denied administering any medication or treating anyone on January 18 as alleged, adding she never got any complaints from the public. Responding to allegations that she injected human medicines into humans, she said:

l have never and would never inject animal evidence into a human being and l challenge anyone who can say that he has been injected with animal medicine to come before the court.

In a letter to the council, it was alleged that Stone had transgressed the strong code of conduct that the medical profession is bound to, and was potentially putting her patients at risk of harm. She denies the allegations.

The trial continues on Monday next week.

Above all the species that are mixed together when making medicine are the same for both human beings and animals. Only labelling differs but the come from the same labs. Another difference is that although they are the same it has been marked that medicine for the human side must be priced at a high margin compared to that for animals just to blinker our minds so that we sweep away the similarity theorem out of our minds...

Very agreeable. Even up to now some people don't know that the virus COVID has always been there as a disease to even domestic animals such as cattle. The vaccine to treat COVID in animals has already been there in vet shops before the emergency emergence of this Covid 19 which some of you came to know of it only in 2019.

True some of our medical practitioners are very Conservative. When COVID 19 ravaged the whole world in 2019, no one was prepared for the catastrophic disease. That happened to an extent that most scientists forgot that Covid 19 was already a disease in our cattles and donkeys. Only the swift medical scientists in some parts of the country knew it and hurriedly changed labels of those animal medicines to suit human consumption yet the drugs are the same as the virus is the same. Those swift scientists made billions of dollars selling the already existing animal medicines while our local medical practitioners only recommended drugs for common flue.

Point, avo vakurwadziwa are those who did limited studies when they were at UZ doing medicine kkkkk they just got their lifetime shock when they saw others making lots of money out of rebranding of pre-existed medicines... Mushonga wemhuka wakachipa kudarika wevanhu minus even upto 2 times so if I order from Vet at a cheaper tag it is obvious I will take money 3 fold from the human side...

Cde the is nothing called animal or human medicine, they are all medicine just medicine. They are differentiated mainly by kilograms of the patient, but the contents in them are the same.

The syringe needled package filled with Animal cure is a superb dosage for any living creatures. Humans and animals are all creatures but different in terms of capabilities, hormones and genes. Animal poison won't be comparable to human herbs. That Doctor deserves persecution.
A warranty of attempted murder is the option.

Scientists understands this and it is any option if resources are a scarce even WHO is agreeable but it should be done secretly in the name of saving lives...And judges may take it to be a crime simply becoz they are not scientific 🤣

The drug in question ivermectin is approved by the American FDA for treatment of parasitic worms.Stone successfully used it on Covid patients. The issue is just that the drug had not been approved by the Zim Medicines Authority for that use.

It's amazing to see inferior complex house negros not complaining that they were treated as animals by being given animal medicine yet if it was a black Zimbabwean doctor all hell will break loose and the mighty ZANU PF would be to blame.
