Effective Early Treatment for Corona Virus

Effective Early Treatment for Corona Virus

by Jeffrey Dach MD

If you have symptoms of fever, malaise, headache, and cough and runny nose, one might entertain the diagnosis of corona virus.  Alternatively your symptoms could be due to one of hundreds of other “influenza-like” viruses.  Contrary to what you are being told in the mainstream media, there is a very effective treatment for corona virus and the others when treated early as discussed in a previous newsletter.

Dr. Harvey Risch Yale Medical School

Perhaps the best discussion comes from Yale Professor, Dr. Harvy Risch in the May 27 2020 American Journal of Epidemiology: “Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk Covid-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.”

Dr. Harvy Risch has amazing credentials.  He is Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Risch’s MD degree University of California and PhD from the University of Chicago.

Five Studies

Dr Risch writes that five studies have shown significant outpatient efficacy for the combination of hydroxychlorquine and azithromycin when used to treat corona virus.  He says the combination is safe and “These medications need to be widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe.”(1):

Here is the quote from his article:

Five studies, including two controlled clinical trials, have demonstrated significant major outpatient treatment efficacy.   Hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin has been used as standard-of-care in more than 300,000 older adults with multicomorbidities, with estimated proportion diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmias attributable to the medications 47/100,000 users, of which estimated mortality is <20%, 9/100,000 users, compared to the 10,000 Americans now dying each week. These medications need to be widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe.” end quote Dr Risch.(1)

Dr. Phillip Carlucci NYU Medcical Center

Phillip Carlucci at NYU hospital writes the addition of Zinc massively improves efficacy of this combination, reduces mortality of hospitalized patients by 50% (fifty per cent):

The early addition of zinc to the hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin adds significant benefit to the protocol in hospitalized COV-19 patients according to a recent study by Phillip Carlucci at NYU hospital.   Dr. Carlucci studied the hyroxychloroquine/azithromycin protocol with and without added zinc.  The addition of zinc reduced the mortality or transfer to hospice by approxinately 50%. (2)

Dr Carlucci writes:

zinc sulfate increased the frequency of patients being discharged home, and decreased the need for ventilation, admission to the ICU, and mortality or transfer to hospice for patients who were never admitted to the ICU….After adjusting for the time at which zinc sulfate was added to our protocol, an increased frequency of being discharged home (OR 1.53, 95% CI 1.12-2.09) reduction in mortality or transfer to hospice remained significant (OR 0.449, 95% CI 0.271-0.744).”(2)

Preventive Measures:

For prevention of flu-like illness, high doses of Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C are recommended by many integrative physicians such as David Brownstein MD.

Should I Wear a Mask ?

During my medical training years, I spent many long days and nights in the operating room wearing a mask, and gloves, and gown.  Of course we followed an elaborate process of “scrubbing in” before donning the mask, gloves and gown in preparation for entering the sterile environment of the operating room.  It was not unusual for the chief surgeon to change his gloves multiple times during an operation.  All of this clothing was strictly removed and placed in the garbage upon leaving the operating room. Similarly, on the hospital floors, the masks and gloves are immediately removed and disposed of after leaving each patients room.

Re-Using the Same Mask and Gloves

This quite different from the re-used cloth masks and gloves of the corona virus pandemic.  People are not disposing of the gloves and mask after leaving each place of business.   This leads me to question this practice as being “inherently unhealthy”.  The re-used gloves become contaminated with various anonymous microbes and viruses, which are then spread around town. The re-masks are contaminated with various microbial organisms from the oral cavity which recirculate into the throat, causing worsening upper respiratory symptoms for the mask wearer.

During the height of the corona virus pandemic, I think it made sense for people to wear a mask in public in heavily populated cities, on a voluntary basis, at the discretion of the use.  However, I do not think this practice should ever have been mandated by government order as was done in Broward County (where I live).  An Administrative Emergency Order by Bertha Henry on May 21, 2020 mandated wearing mask while shopping in essential businesses (among other things) .  This is a typical response for a government administrator who is only trying to do the right thing with limited knowledge and understanding of medical science.

Masks Should be Voluntary, Not Mandatory

In my opinion, at this stage, the use of masks should be voluntary (not mandatory) for individual people with underlying health conditions who are at greater risk, who wish to wear one in public as preventive measure.

For healthy people, wearing a mask in public should be at the discretion of the individual, not mandated by emergency order from a  local county administrator.

Conclusion: The Latest Outrage:  In the opinion of Dr Harvey Hirsch, Professor of Medicine at Yale, highly efficacious treatment is available for early corona virus symptoms as described above.  The mass media has been suppressing this information, the result of which is causing untold suffering and death in the American Population.  This is an outrage.
