Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost ​makes unproven COVID-19 claims, seeks investigation of CDC

Serna rebuts - 'The chair does not speak for me'

During the Tuesday, October 19 meeting of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors meeting, the board chair gave a wide-ranging commentary propagating unproven COVID-19 cures, casting doubt on COVID-19 data from the Center for Disease Control, while also requesting an investigation of the Atlanta-based agency.

The comments came from Supervisor and Board Chair Sue Frost during consent calendar deliberations. Frost specially made commentary on a previously approved resolution for the continuation of online tele-meetings.   

Frost started her comments by saying the Federal Drug Administration has no alternative to current treatments, but there are other treatments outside the US being used to cure the effects of the COVID-19 virus.  

"There are treatments in other countries," she said. "They are ending the COVID emergency with the use of Vitamin D, and C, and Zinc and Ivermectin, so there are alternative treatments."  

The FDA has specifically issued statements about Ivermectin, primarily a veterinary pharmaceutical.  While the FDA ha approved the human version of the drug can be used in small doses for treatment of intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms, it has advised against veterinary does noting it is not authorized or approved "Ivermectin for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19 in people or animals. Ivermectin has not been shown to be safe or effective for these indications."

Frost went on to imply that the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. has been overstated, noting the CDC and the COVID-19 vaccine are ineffective. 

"That could have potentially conflated or inflated COVID cause deaths," Frost claimed. 

Rebutted Frost was Supervisor Phil Serna, who said serving twice as the chair, the public often views statements from the chair as speaking for the entire body, but that is not the case. Acknowledging her right to offer those views, Serna rejected the contents of her commentary. 

"I want to make it absolutely clear, I disagree whole-heartedly with basically the entirety of what the chair has stated," Serna said.

Serna also addressed Frost's request, rejected by the four supervisors, to investigate the CDS saying was "beyond me" and "the chair does not speak for me."

Adding on to Serna's comments about Frost's requests to seek an Attorney General or the grand jury investigation, Supervisor Patrick Kennedy noted, "the grand jury has no jurisdiction over the CDC."
