Dr. Peter McCullough (MD, MPH, FACC, FCCP, FAHA, FNKF, FNLA, FCRSA) is a practicing internist, Board-Certified cardiologist, epidemiologist and professor of medicine at the Baylor University School of Medicine in Dallas.
Before I get into the meat of his findings, I think it’s necessary first to state his profound qualifications as an expert in his field. We wouldn’t want anyone to categorize his findings as disinformation.
He has well over 600 peer-reviewed publications to his name. More than any doctor in Texas – and possibly in America. Many of his papers have appeared in top-tier journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, The Lancet, and the British Medical Journal. He is the president of the Cardiorenal Society of America, the co-editor of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine and associate editor of the American Journal of Cardiology and Cardiorenal Medicine. He is the editor-in-chief of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine and senior associate editor of the American Journal of Cardiology. He serves on the editorial boards of multiple specialty journals. Dr. McCullough has made presentations on the advancement of medicine across the world and has been an invited lecturer at the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the European Medicines Agency. He has served as member or chair of data safety monitoring boards of 24 randomized clinical trials (the Gold Standard for evaluating new drugs). He has led monitoring safety boards in many major drug trials.
Recently, he explained why he thinks the Covid vaccines are too risky, particularly when taking into account the fact that most people have a 99% survival rate if infected. He does not dogmatically criticize anyone for taking the vaccine.
He testified to the U.S. Senate last November (2020) against what he described as the federal government's politicization of health care during the pandemic and curbing or blocking the availability of cheap, effective treatments for COVID-19 such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
From the beginning of the pandemic in March, 2020, he considered the Covid-19 outbreak to be the “medical Superbowl” of his lifetime – a historic crisis that needs “all hands on deck”. Thus, he dedicated the majority of all his efforts from that point on toward finding treatments that would reduce the likelihood of those infected from requiring hospitalization. But he learned early on that this objective was not shared by the medical community. For the first time in the known history of modern medicine virtually no one was interested – or even allowed to – focus on finding treatments. It seemed the entire pandemic was not being led by science, but rather, by politics and fear. Where were (and are) the treatment protocols? Where were (and are) the field hospitals treating symptomatic patients and researching possible remedies?
Dr. McCullough discovered that the protocol was established early on in the medical community to NOT treat Covid until the symptoms became severe. Why? A good question. But he made it his goal to research such possible treatments. Working together with doctors from around the world, he found that multiple drugs used in combination could stop, slow, and/or prevent the worsening of the illness, just as have been employed in treating most viruses of this kind for years; but governments and the medical establishment shut down all discussion on that matter beginning in June 2020. Again, we must ask why?
Like a common cold or flu, we have many low-cost, easily obtainable treatments that can keep us from entering the hospital, but the medical community WORLDWIDE have done nothing to research treatment that might reduce the risk of hospitalization and death. Nothing. This has never been seen in history.
The authorities seemed to be waiting only for a breakthrough vaccine to appear, but historically and ethically, that takes years of randomized trials to be conducted. All the while, people were dying by the thousands. In cardiology, Dr. McCullough states, only about 6% of all treatment protocols came after randomized trials. “Medicine is an art and a science”, he says. Researchers and doctors have learned to try combinations of whatever drugs or other treatments which are safe that might work to mitigate the early symptoms. But with Covid – and only Covid - these tests have often been deemed forbidden under penalty of losing one’s license to practice and/or imprisonment - even though the drugs had been widely available and administered worldwide for years. For example:
- Doctors from Milan who set up a field hospital in 2020 to attempt this in France were put under house arrest for promoting drugs that were effective in treating Covid.
- Australia (in April 2020) established a law that any doctor who attempted to treat a Covid patient with an outpatient drug (such as hydroxychloroquine) could be imprisoned. McCullough rightly asks the obvious, “Since when do doctors face imprisonment for trying to help a patient?”
Dr. McCullough published the first set of protocols for treatment well before any others were available. That published and peer-reviewed paper is, to date, the most downloaded of all that address Covid. When this was published there were 55,000 papers on Covid. Not one recommended means of early treatment.
In December 2020 Dr. McCullough published a second paper on the latest protocols found effective in treating Covid. That is now becoming the standard for treatment among physicians who have chosen to do everything possible and safe to heal their patients.
McCullough decries the official “Do Not Treat” (aka “Let Them Die”) position of official government bodies, such as the FDA, the NIH and the CDC, as inhumane. "Based on current data," McCullough estimates, "we could have saved 85% of the 600,000 Americans who died of Covid19 with early outpatient treatment".
Still today, this is not the standard for the medical community. Their common protocol is to AVOID early treatment. From the beginning, we were told to simply wear a mask and isolate – hope for the virus to die out – and then get the vaccine when it comes out. In the meantime, if the symptoms get really bad, go to the hospital. At the same time, we’ve seen that even the medical journals became corrupt…
Overtly Bias Media Censorship
Dec. 10 2020 was a critical date. Spearheaded by the BBC, major media organizations worldwide agreed to follow the *“Trusted News Initiative” to allow only certain medical news to reach the public.
From their website, the headline reads, “The Trusted News Initiative partners will continue to work together to ensure legitimate concerns about future vaccinations are heard whilst harmful disinformation myths are stopped in their tracks." In other words, only news that promotes the vaccine would be allowed to see daylight. All opposing views are to be censored.
*The partners currently within the TNI are: AP, AFP; BBC, CBC/Radio-Canada, European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Facebook, Financial Times, First Draft, Google/YouTube, The Hindu, Microsoft, Reuters, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Twitter, The Washington Post - - Not minor players!.
We must ask the obvious: Can we trust the mainstream media for the truth?
Here are the facts in support of multidrug therapy:
Multidrug therapy powerfully reduces death and hospitalization
75% lower deaths; 88% less hospitalization
Early treatment is absolutely necessary!!
It’s estimated that 80% of 640k deaths would have been prevented
Natural immunity completely protects you
Frustrated by the inability to have his treatment protocols reach the public ear, Dr. McCullough, in conjunction with others, began publishing his own research on the website “America Out Loud”. “Since we don’t know if the vaccine is safe, we should not push it until we do,” he says. Rather, he recommends the safer alternative treatments be employed before symptoms become aggravated. These treatments have been proven over 80% effective in preventing hospitalizations and death.
The pledge of the Medical Community has always been “Do No Harm!”, but this moral mandate has been abandoned with Covid.
IF the medical community, the government, and the biased media won't advise the people of these proven treatments, shouldn't the Church do so, -- if we really want to love our neighbor?

P.S. The writer of this article had Covid-pneumonia in 2020. 2 Months into the illness and without improvement, he began taking hydroxychloroquine along with Budesonide breathing treatments. Within a month his symptoms decreased and he eventually fully recovered.
