FBI Raiding Healthcare Practices Offering COVID-19 Treatments
In one of the first "raids" against clinics fighting COVID in the nation, the FBI aided by the Department of Justice aided by the Department of Health and Human Services donned hazmat suits and raided Allure Medical Spa near Detroit Michigan. The spa has locations in many states and its founder Dr. Charles Mok claimed that "IV treatments support people's immune systems and help those with the virus to recover quicker". The clinic offered infusions of vitamin c and other vitamins to nurses, police officers and paramedics on the front lines of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in hard hit Detroit. The FBI claims that the clinic provided "fraudulent" treatments and that the clinic failed to adhere to proper protocols to protect patients and staff from the virus.
The clinic and its owner has not yet been indicted and it appears that no arrests have been made. The clinic claims that it made all necessary adjustments to their daily operations going above and beyond the CDC's guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This is a significant step forward by the DOJ in enforcing violations of the CDC's COVID-19 recommendations. IV infusion treatments are used widely by naturopathic physicians and even traditional healthcare providers. Providers offering immune support therapy and IV treatments should be concerned by this recent development.
