It’s ridiculous. India came out with an autoimmune disease fighting drug which is in line with current research that indicates virus infected B cells put out antibodies which attack the body. The drug is effective in halting B cell production allowing the immune system to eradicate the virus. Six months later B cell production resumes without viral infection and the autoimmune disease is gone.
The drug is called Redditux. It’s specifically blocked by the FDA, TSA, Customs etc. from entering the country. Americans are travelling to Hong Kong for Redditux treatment.
The US has a similar drug called Rituximab. It is used for cancer. Off label use has shown it is also effective fighting auto immune diseases. It costs $25K per treatment and must be done twice a year, for the life of the patient.
