Internist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough appeared before the Senate Committee On Health And Human Services to share his views on why there are so many COVID-19 fatalities across the country. The 58-year old physician related that he believes the primary reason the US is tallying a lot of deaths caused by the virus is that people are seemingly led to think that it has no cure.
McCullough related that in Texas, where he is currently having his medical practice, the average person thinks there is no treatment for COVID-19. He stressed that the people there don’t know about the several possible options they can go for to treat the virus. McCullough also pointed out that they are not even familiar with the issuance of an emergency use authorization (EUA) for monoclonal antibodies as a treatment for COVID-19.
He raised the issue that the US government is seemingly promoting COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by select pharmaceutical companies instead of focusing on treatment. McCullough’s studies have already appeared in various prestigious journals worldwide like the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine.
Notably, the published internist and cardiologist emphasized that the Senate Committee On Health And Human Services ought to know “where all these monoclonal antibodies are,” including the related treatment protocols and the list of treatment centers people can go to when they are infected with COVID-19.
McCullough then related how he and other top physicians in Texas put together a paper discussing how they used drugs like intracellular anti-infectives, corticosteroids, and anti-inflammatory medicines to affect viable replication to combat the virus.
He highlighted a drug called colchicine which showed a significant promise in preventing COVID-19 fatalities in a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial. McCullough divulged that the said trial involved over 4,000 patients, and there was a 50% reduction in mortality when colchicine was administered to them.
However, the internist and cardiologist wondered why there was no news of it. All of the media attention seemed to be on the vaccines. To send his message even closer to home, McCullough subsequently asked the following simple yet hard-hitting questions:
“How many of you have turned on a local news station or a national news cable station and ever gotten an update on treatment (for COVID-19) at home?”
“How many of you have ever gotten a single word about what to do when you get handed a diagnosis of COVID-19?”
“How come we did not have a panel of doctors (at the White House) assigned to put all their efforts and stop these hospitalizations?”
“Why don’t we have doctors who actually treat patients get together in a group and every week give us an update?”
“Why don’t we have reports about how many patients were treated and spared hospitalizations?”
“No wonder,” McCullough pointed out. “That is a complete and total failure at every level.” He concluded that the US currently has a total blank spot on COVID-19 treatment.
While McCullough emphasized that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) started putting out guidelines on the treatment of COVID-19, these guidelines focus on those who are already under hospital care.
The multi-awarded internist and cardiologist stressed that save for the two peer-reviewed papers he and other medical experts were able to publish recently, no other health literature tells doctors “how to treat COVID-19 as an outpatient” based on the support of scientific information.
Dr. Peter McCullough’s questions and comments about the near-total block of COVID-19 treatment in the US did not sit well with the Senate Committee On Health And Human Services. Since then, he has been labeled by the US government and other medical practitioners as a “spreader of COVID misinformation.”
