American citizens, you must read the information in a free booklet (updated 8/28/2021) written by concerned and well-respected physicians. “All of the physicians contributing to this booklet are on the frontlines treating outpatients at the first signs of COVID illness.” The basic groups of prescription medicines and other therapies used in COVID-19 are listed in the booklet for a patient to discuss with her/his physician.
I am listing names and credentials of the editors to show their education, experience, and expertise.
Senior Editor: Jane Orient, MD, Internal Medicine Physician, Executive Director, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, President, Doctors for Disaster Preparedness.
Consulting Editor: Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, FACP, FACC, FCCP, FAHA, FNKF, FNLA, FCRSA. Internist, Cardiologist, and Epidemiologist, President, Cardiorenal Society of America. Dr. McCullough led a team of international experts and published the first treatment protocol for ambulatory COVID-19 patients developed from experience treating patients in the US. and Italy and supported by the expanding medical literature at the time. The initial protocol was published in the highly respected American Journal of Medicine.
Editor: Elizabeth Lee Vliet, MD, Preventive Medicine, Past Director, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
Since when can one man stand on a hilltop in D.C. and declare he is the sole contributor of scientific knowledge? Those in power are trying their darndest to discredit other professionals that speak out with coronavirus treatment information that is saving lives. Why? That’s the burning question.
Visit www.aapsonline.org/CovidPatientTreatmentGuide.pdf. You’ll find an educational resource from The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. (AAPSonline.org). It’s called the PHYSICIANS’ GUIDE TO EARLY HOME-BASED TREATMENT.
Early treatment shows the best outcomes – the theme of this booklet. Of course, the first protocol is to contact your doctor. But arm yourself with knowledge and the right to refuse or request other treatment options.
Moving on to another controversy about the coronavirus discussed in the same booklet.
How deadly is COVID-19? I am putting a few excerpts from the booklet in quotes for you.
“The vast majority of deaths from this COVID virus occur in those 75 years old and older, with most of those already sick with other illnesses. A large percentage are in nursing care facilities, over 80 years old, and with an average of 2.5 other medical conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, lung and/or kidney disease. These other conditions are called comorbidities, and they increase the risk of serious illness with COVID.”
“The chances of someone under 50 years old with symptoms dying from COVID-19 is 0.05%. The chances of someone under 18 years old dying from COVID is near 0%. Those that do are those with severe underlying medical conditions. There are roughly 7 times more children that die from the flu than COVID-19.”
“To put it another way, approximately 99.9%+ of individuals who contract COVID will have mild to moderate symptoms and recover, just like with the flu. The majority of deaths are coming from the 0.62% of the population who are in nursing home facilities.”
More burning questions. Why do those in power want to suppress the above information? Why would they fight to federally mandate vaccines and boosters and strip Americans of their freedoms?
Isn’t the point of taking a vaccine shot to avoid sickness and death? So, is it a vaccine or is it not a vaccine?
And why are so many vaccinated people getting COVID-19? And vaccinated individuals were getting COVID-19 long before the omicron variant showed up in the U.S. But there goes the Anthony Fauci spin again.
“These are issues we’ve been grappling with since the Constitution was written: how you hold your government to account for its words and deeds. It’s all about power and the abuse of power.” –Valerie Plame
