The U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee held a critical hearing on November 19, focused on COVID-19 early outpatient treatment, and chaired by Sen. Ron Johnson (WI). The goal was to raise awareness about the urgency of broad access to existing medicines for EARLY home-based treatment of COVID-19 to reduce the risk of being hospitalized or dying. See the booklet I helped write, available here for free:
Senator Ron Johnson is working with many of us physicians who are treating COVID-19 patients and is working to help us break through the roadblocks that have prevented widespread use of successful outpatient treatment.
We need YOUR help to build on the momentum that began on November 19: please take a few minutes now to tell your story. Fill out a short questionnaire that will help us and our allies in the fight for patients’ access to treatment:
WE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE.
Real Patient Stories will be the focus of an upcoming Senate hearing. Thank you for speaking out!
Please tell us here: COVID-19 Treatment – Tell Your Story
> Have you, a family member, close acquaintance, or someone you cared for, had COVID-19 and benefited from early treatment with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, ivermectin, corticosteroids, or other medications?
> Or did you or a family member have to be hospitalized because access to the early treatment medicines was denied to you? Did your primary care physician say: We don’t treat COVID, just quarantine at home and if you get sicker, go to the ER?
> Did a loved one die because early treatment was denied?
> Did your doctor prescribe hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin for early home treatment and the pharmacist would not fill the prescription?
After you take the survey, please watch and share an updated video with highlights of Thursday’s hearing:
In addition, you can listen to Dr. McCullough and Chairman Johnson discuss the hearing with Hannity in this clip here from Sean’s radio show this past week:
