Sun Ng, a retired contractor from Hong Kong, traveled to Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter's first birthday. He got covid and was near death in a Chicago-area hospital. All other options were exhausted, but the hospital refused to give Mr. Ng a generic, FDA-approved drug with an extraordinary safety record that a doctor believed could safe his life.

Finally, a judge asked the right question about ivermectin.

"What's the downside?"

Put another way: If a man is dying of covid in an ICU and all else has been tried, why not order a hospital to give a safe, last-ditch drug?

Edward Hospital, located near Chicago, offered three arguments as to why Sun Ng, seventy-one, should not be given ivermectin:

- There could be side effects.

- Ordering ivermectin would violate its policies.

- Forcing the issue would be "extraordinary" judicial overreach.

On each argument, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton firmly disagreed.
