The COVID death rate in the United States is one of the highest in the world, even with our advanced medical care delivery and resources. Many less affluent countries have death rates 20 times lower than the U.S., even with fewer hospitals, doctors, nurses and high tech equipment.
What is the common factor that accounts for the marked difference in death rates?
It is quite simply this: Other countries use EARLY OUTPATIENT TREATMENT with widely available antiviral medicines, begun at the first signs of symptoms, usually without waiting extra days for test results to confirm the physician’s clinical diagnosis.
The LATE STAGE treatment model promoted by Dr. Fauci and FDA’s Dr. Hahn has been for U.S. patients to be sent home to self-quarantine until symptoms worsened, and then go into the hospital when seriously ill with respiratory distress and heart damage. Only then do patients get offered medication, oxygen support, steroids, anti-coagulants, and others that typically don’t work as well at this critical illness stage.
But home therapy could prevent thousands of hospitalizations and deaths, according to a just-published article from the respected American Journal of Medicine. The U.S. urgently needs to implement this early successful model. Lead author Peter McCullough, M.D., a cardiologist at Baylor, one of the most widely published physicians in America, is not just theorizing. He is actually treating COVID patients at home.
Dr. McCullough’s recommendation would clearly save lives using cheap, safe, FDA-approved medicines — hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with azithromycin or doxycycline, possibly ivermectin or colchicine, inhaled budesomide or oral steroids, home oxygen concentrators, plus supplemental zinc, vitamin C and vitamin D.
The supply of HCQ has been ramped up to handle its use in early treatment of COVID, but we have millions of doses in the Strategic National Stockpile deteriorating in government warehouses — vital medicine that is not being distributed because, for political reasons, doctors are still not prescribing for COVID-19 outpatients.
