Dr. Peter McCullough: The State of COVID Treatment
The video above,1 featuring cardiologist, internist and epidemiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, is packed with sound logic, data and action steps that have the potential to turn the pandemic around — if only more people would listen.
The presentation was made at Andrews University Village Church Berrien Springs, Michigan on August 20, 2021. It is well worth listening to. It will make you question why a key aspect of care — early treatment — has been missing from the pandemic.
McCullough is an editor for two medical journals and has published over 650 peer-reviewed articles. This marks the first occasion in his professional career that McCullough has seen medical professionals not offer early treatment.
Early COVID Treatment Saves Lives
The standard of care for COVID-19 has been to withhold treatment until a person is sick enough to be hospitalized. COVID-19 patients typically need to stay in hospital for two to three weeks before they become seriously ill. Early treatment is possible to save lives.
The rationale was that there have been no large, randomized trials conducted to know which treatments are safe and effective, but as McCullough said, "We can't wait for large randomized trials … Something got in the minds of doctors and nurses and everyone to not treat COVID-19. "I couldn't bear it." He and colleagues worked feverishly to figure out a treatment — why didn't national health organizations do so also?
McCullough stated that "Our government, other governments and the whole world have not lifted one finger to decrease the risk of death and hospitalization anywhere." The child is given medication. There aren't randomized trials available for everything we do.2
McCullough and colleagues realized that there are three major phases to COVID-19. It all starts with virus reproduction, which triggers inflammation (or a cytokine flood). This leads to blood-clotting. When enough blood clots develop in the lungs of a patient, they can't receive enough oxygen. This is a complicated process and there is no one drug that will work. McCullough therefore uses multiple drugs to treat the condition.
About 6% of cardiologists' decisions are made based upon randomised trials. The art of medicine is a science and an art. Medical judgment requires it. What was happening is, I think out of global fear, no judgement was happening," McCullough said,3 referring to doctors' refusal to treat COVID-19 patients early on in the disease process.
Doctors Threatened for Treating COVID-19
Around the world, the unthinkable is happening: Doctors are being threatened with loss of their license or even prison for trying to help their patients. Didier Raoult, a French physician, suggested that he set up a tent in order to help covid-19 patients. His house arrest was imposed. He has promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which initially was available over the counter — until France made it prescription only.4
In Australia, if a doctor attempts to treat a COVID-19 patient with HCQ, they could be put in prison. What is the penalty for a doctor trying to treat a COVID-19 patient using HCQ? McCullough agreed. South Africa had a doctor who prescribed ivermectin.
McCullough published his landmark paper, "Pathophysiological Basis & Rationale For Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-2 Infection", in August 2020 online.5
The follow-up paper is titled "Multifaceted Highly Targeted Sequential Multidrug Treatment of Early Ambulatory High-Risk SARS-CoV-2 Infection (COVID-19)" and was published in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine in December 2020.6 It became the basis for the home treatment guide.
Although some doctor organizations are now treating COVID-19 patient, the "ivory tower" is still not treating them. My health system's party line is that you should not refer a COVID-19 person to me as an outpatient. Wait for the patient to become sufficiently sick before admitting them. Because my health system … follows the National Institutes of Health or the Centers for Disease Control, period."
Conditioned to Wait for an Injection
With no hope of early treatment, McCullough believes that most people became conditioned to wait for an injection. McCullough says that people became "conditioned" to wait until they received the vaccine. We waited for the vaccine. We were all told about the vaccine.
While the vaccine was developed, it is different than other vaccines. The results have been decreasing in effectiveness and causing a high number of injuries and deaths. In comparison, the 1976 fast-tracked injection programme against swine influenza was stopped after approximately 25 to 32 deaths.7
According to McCullough in the video, if a new drug comes on the market and five deaths occur, the standard is to issue a black box warning stating the medication may cause death. McCullough states that the product was pulled from the marketplace after 50 deaths. Now consider this: The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database showed that — for all vaccines combined before 2020 — there were about 158 total deaths reported per year.
By January 22, 2021, there were already 182 deaths reported for COVID-19 injections, with just 27.1 million people vaccinated. McCullough explained that it was far more than sufficient to meet the concern level to suspend the program.
McCullough stated that we have already reached the point of concern Jan 22. And if there was a data safety monitoring board — I know, because I do this work — we would have had an emergency meeting and said, wait a minute, people are dying after the vaccine. It's time to find out the reason.8
It's standard to have an external critical event committee, an external data safety monitoring board and a human ethics committee for large clinical trials — such as the mass COVID-19 injection program, but these were not put into place.
"This is something we've never seen in human medicine — a new product introduced and just going full-steam ahead with no check on why people are dying after the vaccine," McCullough said. On two occasions, the CDC and FDA — in March and in June — reviewed the data and said none of the deaths are related to the vaccines. He stated that he believed this was malfeasance.
We can now fast-forward to July 30, 2020, when VAERS data indicated that 12,366 Americans died following a COVID0-19 vaccination.9 In an analysis of COVID-19 vaccine death reports from VAERS, researchers found that 86% of the time, nothing else could have caused the death, and it appears the vaccine was the cause.10
The Spike Protein Is Dangerous
Your body recognizes the spike protein in COVID-19 jabs as foreign, so it begins to manufacture antibodies to protect you against COVID-19, or so the theory goes. However, there is a problem. The spike protein itself is dangerous and known to circulate in your body at least for weeks and more likely months11 — perhaps much longer — after the COVID jab.
The spike protein can cause blood vessel damage and lead to blood clot formation in your cells.12 It can go into your brain, adrenal glands, ovaries, heart, skeletal muscles and nerves, causing inflammation, scarring and damage in organs over time. McCullough and his colleagues believe that spike protein can be found in donated blood. They have informed the American Association of Blood Banking (AALBB) and the Red Cross.
Since years, messenger RNA (mRNA), platforms have been studied. They are designed in many cases to replace defective genes, and could be useful for treating heart disease or cancer.
Pfizer and Germany-based BioNTech announced, in November 2020, that their mRNA injection had been "more than 90% efficient" during a Phase III trial.13 This does not mean that 90% of people who get injected will be protected from COVID-19, as it's based on relative risk reduction (RRR).
Absolute risk reduction (ARR), for the jab, is below 1%. Although the RRR is limited to those who would benefit from the jab only, the absolute reduction (ARR), or the difference between the attack rates with and without the jab considers the entire population. Researchers wrote ARRs in The Lancet Microbe, April 2021 that they tend to be overlooked because they provide a less dramatic effect size than RRRs.14
McCullough believes the mass injection campaign is an incredible violation of human ethics, in part because no one should be pressured, coerced or threatened into using an investigational product.
No attempts have been made to present or mitigate risks to the public, such as giving it only to people who really need it — not to low risk groups like children and young people and those who are naturally immune to COVID-19 due to prior infection. He stated that he found this disturbing.
The Injections Don't Stop COVID-19, Can Be Deadly
The CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) posted online July 30, 2021, details an outbreak of COVID-19 that occurred in Barnstable County, Massachusetts — 74% of the cases occurred in fully vaccinated people.15
Indiscriminate vaccination is driving mutations, as the virus is mutating wildly to evade the injections. They are also rapidly losing effectiveness. A study in MedRxiv that used data from Mayo Clinic Health System revealed Moderna's injection to be 76% more effective than Pfizer during Alpha and Delta variation prevalence. Pfizer was just 42%.16
A little-known fact is that Moderna's jab has three times the dose of Pfizer's, but, curiously, health officials aren't even discussing this or giving the public updates on which of the three injections work "best." The narrative is simple and straightforward — get an injection, any injection.
McCullough said that COVID-19 has changed and that vaccines no longer work as well.17
Similar to VAERS, the U.K. maintains a "Yellow Card" reporting site to report adverse effects to vaccines and medications.18
Tess Lawrie, whose company The Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy has worked with the World Health Organization, analyzed U.K. Yellow Card data and concluded that there's more than enough evidence to pull the injections from the market because they're not safe for human use. The report stated:19
"It is now apparent that these products in the blood stream are toxic to humans. A full safety analysis must be done to assess the true extent of these harms. According to UK Yellow Card data, the potential dangers include thromboembolism and multisystem inflammatory disorder, immune suppression, anaphylaxis and autoimmunity.
Early Treatment Is Crucial
McCullough is trying to get the word out about the importance of early treatment of COVID-19. The evidence supports early ambulatory therapy using a sequenced multidrug regimen. This has a positive risk-to-benefit profile that decreases the chance of death and hospitalization.
McCullough's initial treatment includes a nutraceutical package. This video is 53:40. You can open the windows in order to get fresh air into your house while you are recovering.
If your symptoms don't improve or persist, you should call your doctor to request monoclonal antibodies therapy. As the treatment continues, anti-infectives, such as HCQ, ivermectin and steroids, are added. Blood thinners may also be used.
Find a new doctor if your COVID-19 specialist refuses treatment in its early stages.
McCullough is one of many experts who think COVID-19 injections make the pandemic more serious. These injections "have an unfavorable safety record and are not clinically efficacious, so they can't be supported in clinical practice."
Although this seems obvious, McCullough feels that we have a mass psychosis, which prevents people from seeing the light. "The whole world is in a trance," he said, adding:20
"Things are getting disturbingly out of control and it's in the context of the virus. It is clear … we are in a very special time in the history of mankind. Whatever is going on, it is the entire world … every human being in the world. The program appears to be working.
The program … is happening to promote as much fear, isolation, suffering, hospitalization and death in order to get a needle in every arm, at all costs. This is the reality, and nobody in the room could disagree.
