The FBI on Thursday raided a Detroit-area medical facility for reportedly treating non-hospitalized coronavirus patients with intravenous vitamin C, which the FBI appears to be claiming is a "fraudulent treatment."
Allure Medical Spa, which is owned by Dr. Charles Mok, had been giving out vitamin C injections for free to first responders before the FBI came in and aggressively shut him down.
From Click on Detroit, "Macomb County business raided by the FBI over possible improper COVID-19 treatments":
FBI agents went into the building wearing full protective gear to protect themselves from potential exposure. Sources claim the raid is because Allure has been allegedly performing treatments for COVID-19 patients without an approved treatment or cure.While it may not be a "cure," vitamin C is being used widely as a treatment for coronavirus in hospitals throughout the world and has been shown to be effective in patients with sepsis and severe acute respiratory failure in past studies. Multiple clinical trials to study its effectiveness at treating the coronavirus are currently ongoing.
FOX 2 Detroit, which simply parroted the line fed to them by the FBI, claimed vitamin C is a "fake treatment" and quoted FBI spokesperson Mara Schneider saying the clinic was accused of providing "fraudulent treatments for COVID-19" and allegedly "did not observe proper protocols to protect patients and staff from the virus."
FOX 2 Detroit said a doctor at the facility told them Dr. Mok is "ahead of the curve in this type of treatment and has always put the [patients'] health first, often treating them for free."
"Vitamin C infusion, is a common practice in the US because it boosts the immune system," the doctor said.
"I've gone there for several years and always found them to be so welcoming and helpful and informative," one of their patients told FOX 2 Detroit.
"The FBI said that no one is in custody, no arrests were made but they did say that this was an ongoing investigation," FOX 2 Detroit reported.
Here's what appears to be a press release Allure Medical put out the day of the raid:
Allure Medical Offering High-Dose Intravenous Vitamin C to Frontline EmployeesThe only statement I can imagine the FBI could have taken issue with is Mok saying they're using it to "help those with the virus recover quicker."
It hasn't been proven yet in double-blind clinical trials that vitamin C helps coronavirus patients recover quicker but this is a doctor recommending a common treatment of a heavily studied, essential vitamin to non-hospitalized patients for (mostly) free.
Raiding his facility and shutting his business down for giving free vitamin C treatments in the midst of a pandemic strikes me as massive overkill.
Could this dispute not have been solved with a simple letter or a phone call?
