Two lifelong New Yorkers filed a lawsuit challenging recent directives instructing New York medical providers to consider race in distributing lifesaving COVID-19 treatments.

Two recently authorized oral antiviral treatments are up to 88% effective in reducing the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19. One available monoclonal antibody treatment is effective against the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Faced with severe supply constraints for these treatments, the state and city health departments directed health care providers to prioritize patients after considering a host of risk factors, including age, vaccination status, and health conditions like cancer, diabetes, and a compromised immune system.

But rather than limiting the criteria for administering medical treatment to scientific data concerning risk, the state and city added a patient’s race as an additional consideration, granting priority status for individuals of “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity.” Yet although race can be associated with other factors that may increase a person’s chances of suffering severe symptoms from COVID-19, the Mayo Clinic found that there is nothing inherent about race that puts anyone at a higher risk of suffering severe symptoms.

Plaintiff Jonathan Roberts is a 61-year-old New York City native who has worked in finance for over 40 years. Because Jon is under 65 years old and fully vaccinated, he is categorically ineligible to receive the treatments because he is white and non-Hispanic.

“We eagerly await the day on which the supplies for these medical treatments can match demand,” said PLF attorney Wen Fa. “But until that time, treatments should be allocated on the basis of need and scientific criteria, not on the basis of arbitrary racial classifications.”

The case is Roberts et al. v. Bassett et al., filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

One thought on “New Yorkers file lawsuit challenging racially discriminatory COVID-19 treatment guideline

  1. Of course, the CRIMINAL state-medical allopathy establishment always just happens to “find” covid treatments from THEIR arsenal of merchandise, whether it’s toxic vaccines or “effective” allopathic treatments, while having IMMORALLY censored and suppressed many safe effective and cheap remedies from “alternative” medicine FROM THE VERY START OF THE FAKE PANDEMIC — carefully check out “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” at https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html

    It’s ONE of the many obvious realities that they’re a totally ROTTEN crooked enterprise and that Covid-19 (and many other things) is a deliberate total SCAM against people everywhere.

    By the way, with the letters of “omicron” an alleged Covid variant you can spell “moronic”…

    And further speaking of stupid herd people not getting the glaringly obvious truth/ie not getting the constant onslaught of BIG lies of the official authorities……
