MP Questioned on Covid Cure
DEPUTY LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION MAKES A QUICK EXIT
National Party deputy leader and health spokesman Dr Shane Reti was at the Whangarei Howl of Protest today.
Dr Reti supported the event saying the National Party stands behind 6 of the 7 key positions held by Groundswell, and that his party agreed with the farmers sentiment that "enough is enough."
Dr Reti questioned the government's response to climate change and rather than "killing the golden goose" by culling 13% of the national herd he said they should focus on the emissions trading scheme.
A local Whangarei legend then took the opportunity to ask Dr Reti about COVID-19 medicines ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Dr Reti replied saying they were not safe and effective nor Medsafe approved and there was no place for ivermectin.
When pressed about doctors in NZ voicing concerns, Dr Reti quickly took off with the comment "they'll be in front of the medical council, is where they are."
