This October 27th, we held a webinar about outpatient early treatment for COVID-19. Invited speaker was the esteemed Dr Peter A. McCullough from Texas, who is both a cardiac medicine specialist and an expert in public health.
The theme of the webinar was outpatient early treatment which, according to Dr McCullough, should be a key pillar in the response to the pandemic. This pillar is however vastly ignored by the authorities in many countries, including the US, Canada and most European countries.
There was a surprised guest at the webinar – Dr Brian Tyson from California – who agreed to jump in the Q&A session. Dr Tyson has to this day treated with success some 2 000 COVID + patients, as outpatients.
No, this was not staged. Dr McCullough had no clue Dr Tyson was going to be present in the Q&A session. And Dr Tyson did not know, when he jumped into the Q&A session, that Dr McCullough had caught COVID-19.
Both doctors caught COVID-19 very recently – last week for Dr Tyson, this week for Dr McCullough. That brought a detailed exchange between the two highly knowledgeable medical doctors regarding COVID-19 about their respective early treatment protocols.
In addition to the depth of Dr McCullough’s presentation, this exchange seems to have caught the eye of two specialized journalists who attended the webinar, which resulted in two articles, one in Trial Site News, the other in Health Care News section of Heartland Daily News (the Heartland Institute is a conservative and libertarian public policy think tank)
Journalist Anne Marie Schieber, writing for Heartland Daily News, in her article “Doctors with COVID-19 Put Early At-Home Treatment to the Test,” puts emphasis on the treatment taken by the two physicians, who are are taking the medication regimen very early on, to avoid a severe form of the disease and avoid hospitalization. She reiterates in her own words the main theme of the webinar: early treatment, quoting Dr McCullough saying “Early home treatment can be the only method for reducing hospitalizations and death once an individual gets sick. The hospital should only be a safety net for survival. It should not be the first place of treatment.”
In the specialized publication Trial Site News, Mary Beth Pfeiffer also focused on the Dr McCullough’s disease and early treatment, and pointed to the unfairness resulting from the denial of early treatment to the general population.
“Unlike too many other patients, the internist has access to essential medications and the expertise to use them.”
“For the rest of us, the National Institutes of Health recommends no early treatment at all while government edicts discourage or forbid doctors from using drugs that haven’t been subject to lengthy trials.”
“We cannot have patients at risk, like myself, sit at home with no treatment,” McCullough said during the webinar. “It’s wrong and it shouldn’t happen.”
