Florida teacher who asked to be treated with ivermectin died of COVID.

The widower of Tamara Drock continues with the claim even though the drug has no scientific evidence for treating the coronavirus.

Tenet Healthcare, which owns the hospital, did not respond to requests for comment, the newspaper said.

A Florida teacher admitted to hospital with CoVID-19 died after her husband tried unsuccessfully to persuade doctors to treat her with ivermectin, a study to prove its effectiveness. Despite the lack of accepted treatment is popular in skepticism.

Ryan Druck told the Palm Beach Post that Tamara Druck, 47, died Friday at the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, 12 weeks after being admitted to hospital with some illnesses.

Ryan Drock, who caught COVID and has recovered, said he would not back down in his efforts. "I hope they name a law after him, so no one else has to go through this," Drock said. "If he had gotten out of the hospital, he would have been able to get the medicine."

Last month he sued the hospital to force doctors to give him ivermectin, a drug used to treat disorders caused by parasites, usually in horses. The Food and Drug Administration has not approved the cure for the treatment of COVID-19 because it has not been effective in preclinical testing.

Judge James Nutt rejected Drock's lawsuit, he said, because allowing a judge to overturn a doctor's decision would set a dangerous precedent.

He urged the Drocks and the hospital to agree on their own. However, the Post reported that a deal fell through when a doctor decided to give ivermectin at a dose that the family's attorney deemed too low. In recent months there have been numerous cases of severe poisoning from ivermectin overdose.

Tenet Healthcare, which owns the hospital, did not respond to requests for comment, the newspaper said.

Ryan Drock, who caught COVID and has recovered, said he would not back down in his efforts. "I hope they name a law after him, so no one else has to go through this," Drock said. "If he had gotten out of the hospital, he would have been able to get the medicine."
