Opioids and vaccines

Prime Clerk LLC, a business-restructuring unit of Kroll Business

Services, is using advertisements in Czech publications to recruit

people who have a claim against Purdue Pharma or its owners, the

Sackler families. Under a proposed bankruptcy plan, the Sackler

families would pay $4.275 billion over nine years, in addition to

$225m previously paid to the U.S. to resolve civil claims related to

their role in the opioid crisis. Purdue Pharma is the maker of Oxy-

Contin and other opioids, which have allegedly caused thousands

of deaths as a result of action by the company to downplay the risks

of its products and to overstate the benefits. Johnson & Johnson,

another opioid maker, reached a $230m agreement last week with

the state of New York to resolve claims. It took 20 years for govern-

ments and the medical profession to start taking the opioid situa-

tion seriously. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

estimate that opioid overdoses killed 500,000 Americans over this

period. Some of the same doctors who were pushing opioids are

now pushing miracle covid vaccines with the same enthusiasm.
