Have you ever heard of the MATH+ protocol to deal with COVID-19? One in all its creators, Dr. Joseph Varon, who leads the COVID-19 unit at United Memorial Medical Heart (UMMC) in Houston, has been making an attempt to get the phrase out about it for the reason that begin of the pandemic. “We’ve choices for sufferers now. We simply have to make these choices accessible,” he stated, talking with broadcast journalist Ivory Hecker.1

Hecker has a narrative in her personal proper, as she was fired from FOX 26 Houston in June 2021 after she interrupted a stay information section to inform viewers the station had prohibited her from sharing sure data, including that she’s “not the one reporter being subjected to this.”2

Censorship is an ongoing downside that is reached unprecedented ranges in the course of the pandemic, which explains why you in all probability have not heard of the MATH+ protocol, regardless of its immense success in saving lives over the past yr. Varon has been on the frontlines all through, marking his 366th consecutive day treating COVID-19 sufferers on March 20, 2021.3

From March 20, 2021, to Could 21, 2021, there have been 1,293 hospitalized COVID-19 sufferers at United Memorial Medical Heart. Eighty-six of them died, leading to a 6.7% dying price. That is about half the 12.5% dying price for hospitalized COVID-19 sufferers reported by the Nationwide Heart for Well being Statistics over the identical interval.4

MATH+ Protocol Saves Lives, however Media Is Ignoring It

Early on within the pandemic, 5 important care physicians fashioned the Entrance Line COVID-19 Important Care Working Group (FLCCC), which developed the extremely efficient COVID-19 treatment protocol known as MATH+. Varon was amongst them, as was Dr. Paul Marik, a important care physician at Sentara Norfolk Normal Hospital in East Virginia. The protocol for hospitalized sufferers was initially based mostly on the next:

  • Intravenous Methylprednisolone
  • Excessive-dose intravenous Ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
  • Plus elective remedies Thiamine, zinc and vitamin D
  • Full dose low molecular weight Heparin

At first, solely supportive care was provided to COVID-19 sufferers. Even at the moment, folks with COVID-19 are advised to remain residence and isolate till they’re missing oxygen, a suggestion that Marik believes is costing lives, since early therapy with MATH+ is so efficient:5

“Whereas we could not have the most effective solutions, we do have some solutions and to inform folks to remain at residence and isolate so that they go blue is an absurdity that is really inflicting a number of harm as a result of we are actually ready for the virus to, in some folks, trigger the cytokine storm. And after they arrive with that state it is extremely troublesome to reverse it and cease it and produce them again.”

The MATH+ protocol led to excessive survival charges. Out of greater than 100 hospitalized COVID-19 sufferers handled with the MATH+ protocol as of mid-April 2020, solely two died. Each had been of their 80s and had superior continual medical situations.6 However in line with Varon, regardless of their uncommon successes, reporters weren’t focused on why the sufferers at his hospital had been extra more likely to survive.7

The physicians behind MATH+ are clear that their protocols are fluid and alter in response to the info. As such, there have been two main modifications since MATH+ was first launched, one involving ivermectin and one other involving hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).

Ivermectin Added to MATH+

Ivermectin was added as a core remedy in FLCCC’s protocols for the prevention and therapy of COVID-19 in October 2020.8 Ivermectin — a broad-spectrum antiparasitic that additionally has anti-inflammatory exercise — has been discovered to cut back COVID-19 mortality by 81%.9 The drug can be secure, cheap and broadly accessible, with a long time of scientific utilization suggesting it has a “excessive margin of security.”10

By December 2020, FLCCC, noting the acute success of the drug, referred to as for widespread adoption of ivermectin, each as a prophylactic and for the therapy of all phases of COVID-19.11,12 In a single prevention trial, 58 volunteers took 12 milligrams of ivermectin as soon as per 30 days for 4 months.

Solely 4 (6.96%) got here down with gentle COVID-19 signs in the course of the Could by August 2020 trial interval.13 As compared, 44 of 60 well being care employees (73.3%) who had declined the remedy had been identified with COVID-19. In June 2021, Varon and colleagues printed a overview within the American Journal of Therapeutics, which included meta-analyses based mostly on 18 randomized managed therapy trials of ivermectin in COVID-19.14 The outcomes had been spectacular, exhibiting:15

  • Massive, statistically vital reductions in mortality, time to scientific restoration and time to viral clearance when used for therapy
  • Considerably diminished dangers of contractive COVID-19 with common ivermectin use

The information are so robust that, on the India Institute of Medical Sciences, all well being care employees now take two 0.3 mg/kg doses of ivermectin 72 hours aside, then repeat the dose month-to-month to forestall COVID-19.16 And in areas which have applied ivermectin distribution campaigns, related reductions in case fatality charges outcomes.17 In response to the overview:18

“Lastly, the numerous examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns resulting in fast population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality point out that an oral agent efficient in all phases of COVID-19 has been recognized.”

Marik believes {that a} mass distribution program of ivermectin, along with melatonin, vitamin D and aspirin, might finish the pandemic. By assuming everyone seems to be contaminated and treating with this secure mixture of cheap compounds, Marik says, “We’ll eradicate SARS-CoV-2. It is going to be gone.”19 This is not more likely to occur, although, as a result of “financial and political elements that benefit from the ongoing pandemic.”20

HCQ Changed With Quercetin

HCQ, a zinc ionophore, was a part of the MATH+ protocol for the primary six months of the pandemic. (They’ve just lately swapped quercetin for HCQ.) At the moment, the dying price for COVID-19 sufferers at Varon’s UMMC was 4.4%, in comparison with a dying price of about 20% at different hospitals.21

Hecker first spoke with Varon about HCQ in August 2020, and he spoke favorably about utilizing the controversial drug, noting that out of greater than 300 COVID-19 sufferers handled at UMMC, that they had a 95% success price.22

Misinformation and outright lies had been spun about HCQ, together with fabricated analysis, in an obvious effort to suppress and forestall its widespread use. Different physicians, together with Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a working towards doctor in a Jewish group in Monroe, New York, have had nice success utilizing HCQ for COVID-19.23

Nonetheless, in June 2020, the Nationwide Institutes of Well being halted a scientific trial of HCQ after stating that, whereas the drug wasn’t dangerous, it additionally wasn’t helpful to hospitalized sufferers.24

Backlash ensued following the NIH announcement, and FLCCC phased out using HCQ in its protocols. Their newest I-MASK+ protocol, up to date June 30, 2021,25 recommends quercetin as a substitute. Quercetin, additionally a zinc ionophore, is an over-the-counter different to HCQ and works very similar to HCQ does. In response to Marik:26

“Experimental and early scientific knowledge (printed in excessive affect journals) means that this compound has broad antiviral properties (together with towards coronavirus) and performing at varied steps within the viral life cycle. It additionally seems to be a potent inhibitor of warmth shock proteins (HSP 40 and 70) that are required for viral meeting.”

Ivermectin Continues To Be Censored, US on ‘Media Lockdown’

Within the video above, Hecker speaks with a number of recovered COVID-19 sufferers who acquired the MATH+ protocol. One, Manuel Espinoza, a urologist from Texas, was on a sluggish decline utilizing the traditional COVID protocols. Then his spouse discovered concerning the MATH+ protocol on-line, and Espinoza was emergency airlifted to UMMC. “Inside hours” of the therapy his well being had rotated, he stated, and “inside days, simply immense enchancment.”27

But, Varon stated that each time he talked about ivermectin on social media, “he went to Fb jail.” Reporters additionally advised him, a number of occasions, that they had been banned from reporting on sure COVID-19 drug remedies.28 Related censorship was skilled by Dr. Pierre Kory, who was additionally part of the group that fashioned FLCCC.

On December 8, 2020, Kory testified to the Senate Committee on Homeland Safety and Governmental Affairs, which held a listening to on “Early Outpatient Therapy: An Important A part of a COVID-19 Resolution.” He referred to as on the NIH, CDC and FDA to overview the expansive knowledge on ivermectin to forestall COVID-19, preserve these with early signs from progressing and assist critically sick sufferers get well:29,30

Regardless of his impassioned pleas and astonishing science to again them up, the therapy was not solely ignored by the committee however promptly eviscerated.31 In the meantime, media studies claimed ivermectin was unproven and the World Well being Group additionally refused to endorse it.

YouTube eliminated Kory’s testimony, which had almost 9 million views, calling it a hazard to the group.32 Kory says that whereas his analysis on ivermectin has gotten a number of consideration worldwide, it is gotten zero within the U.S. — “U.S. is on a media lockdown,” he stated.33 Varon agreed, telling Hecker that “nobody” is asking concerning the MATH+ protocol. “Proper now everyone seems to be focused on vaccination.”34

MATH+ Protocol Is Out there in 23 Languages

FLCCC’s I-MASK+ protocol could be downloaded in full,35 supplying you with step-by-step directions on tips on how to forestall and deal with the early signs of COVID-19. FLCCC additionally has protocols for at-home prevention and early therapy, referred to as I-MASS, which entails ivermectin, vitamin D3, a multivitamin and a digital thermometer to look at your physique temperature within the prevention part and ivermectin, melatonin, aspirin and antiseptic mouthwash for early at-home therapy.

Family or shut contacts of COVID-19 sufferers could take ivermectin (18 milligrams, then repeat the dose in 48 hours) for post-exposure prevention.36 FLCCC additionally has a administration protocol — I-RECOVER37 — for lengthy haul COVID-19 syndrome. The protocols are translated into 23 totally different languages to supply widespread, free entry to this lifesaving data, together with tips on how to get ivermectin.38

FLCCC stays hopeful that ivermectin might be formally adopted into nationwide or worldwide COVID-19 therapy tips within the close to future. However, as Hecker famous, the cheap remedy faces a significant hurdle:39

“Had there been an present recognized, secure and efficient therapy for COVID-19, Emergency Use Authorization of a vaccine for the virus can be prohibited by regulation. May which were a part of the motivation for the unusual censorship of sure COVID-19 remedies that we witnessed over the previous yr at information and social media companies?”
