    Very informative and well presented. Thank you.

  3. Bernews I am thankful for this interview with this doctor but I want to take another approach at this without having to write a whole book or novel. I know that Dr. Michael Ashton is one in charge at the hospital as well as the Chief Medical officer Dr. Cheek-Ball along with the Health Minister Mrs. Kim Wilson.

    I think Bermuda is doing the best they can with what they can but there is far to much information left out from a medical view and the do’s and don’ts, many of us have been watching segments of Dr. Rashid Buttar on YouTube that brings a different light to this entire situation, along with many other U.S. Doctors and I am not talking about the origins of Covid19 and how it started and who is responsible, but more importantly how to take precautions and interventions.

    I am not referring to nothing coming from (WHO) World Health Organisation, like our Ministry of Health is doing at present, because after listening to the Dr. Rashid Buttar and many other’s,there allegedly seems to be a greater scheme of things going on and this World Health Organization and Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates are very questionable.

    In simple terms I think it would be wise for people to do their own research and I pray when its all said and done and there is a vaccine that comes out for Covid19, that Bermuda wont be so dumb to make it mandatory for all citizens to have to take, because I for one will say straight up I wont be taking it.

    It’s a lot I would like to share but I am waiting fr one doctor in Bermuda that would come out and give another version, then those that are falling in line with so much propaganda that has floated around the World, all for a political agenda.

    Thanks Dr Ashton. I have been following this virus since it started, and noticed some patients in hospital are placed in prone position. There have been a few times on the news where doctors talk about doing this.

    There’s an article in the New England Journal of Medicine named Prone Positioning in Severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. It found that those assigned to the prone group had a 16% mortality rate vs. 32.8% in the supine group P < 0.001.

    Note: study is from 2013 and so not COVID-19 related. CNN linked to another study NCT04325906 which started April 2nd specifically for COVID-19.
