LOS ANGELES, CA – America’s Frontline Doctors released the following statement in response to inaccurate and slanderous reporting by both Time Magazine and NBC News. When Covid-19 hit in March 2020, the formal recommendation from the United States government was to lock down and only come to the hospital if you could not breathe. Never before in the history of our nation has this been medical advice. Over the past 18 months, the government has contended that there is nothing that can be done other than masking to protect individuals from COVID-19. The human cost of that reckless and unscientific prescription has been massive. This has been [attested](https://covid19criticalcare.com/) to by [thousands of doctors](https://doctors4covidethics.org/) [worldwide](https://americasfrontlinedoctors.org/2videos/dr-zelenko-speaks-to-a-rabbinical-court-in-jerusalem/) including several testifying before [Congress](https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/hearings/early-outpatient-treatment-an-essential-part-of-a-covid-19-solution). A small number of courageous physicians in the US and around the world put their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor on the line, and started treating Covid patients early to prevent hospitalization, mechanical ventilation, and death. These intrepid doctors, including Dr. Vladimir Zelenko in upstate New York, Dr. Brian Tyson in California, and Dr. Didier Raoult in Marseilles, France, achieved extremely impressive clinical results, using various combinations of hydroxycholoroquine, ivermectin, zinc, vitamins and antibiotics. AFLDS was formed in response to the unprecedented media censorship of early outpatient treatment of Covid-19 with cheap, easily available drugs. We responded to the enormous humanitarian need by aggressively working to make hydroxychloroquine over the counter, just as it is in many other countries. A Citizen’s Petition was filed with the FDA on October 12, 2020 and was ignored, and thus AFLDS worked to establish relationships with telemedicine companies to enable physicians to see patients virtually. Several other organizations stepped into this void as well and together with qualified physicians appropriately prescribing these proven, safe and effective medications, have saved millions of lives. Globally it is well known that early treatment works but this truth continues to be frantically suppressed by the dishonest American media. [In India](https://www.italy24news.com/News/161384.html "This external link will open in a new window") the scientist who withheld this cheap, safe medicine from her people is now facing the death penalty. [In Japan](https://twitter.com/drsimonegold/status/1430952808728055808?s=20 "This external link will open in a new window") the Tokyo Medical Association urged all doctors to prescribe ivermectin. [In China](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7135139/ "This external link will open in a new window") Chloroquine has been recommended since March 2020. In America the mainstream media failed to report >300 studies showing early treatment works, including the [American Journal of Medicine](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7410805/ "This external link will open in a new window") and the [American Journal of Therapeutics](https://journals.lww.com/americantherapeutics/fulltext/2021/06000/review_of_the_emerging_evidence_demonstrating_the.4.aspx "This external link will open in a new window") and the treatment algorithm posted by [Association of American Physicians and Surgeons](https://aapsonline.org/ "This external link will open in a new window"). The Wall Street Journal did attempt to shame the FDA for trying to block people’s access to the [Nobel Prize winning drug](https://www.wsj.com/articles/fda-ivermectin-covid-19-coronavirus-masks-anti-science-11627482393 "This external link will open in a new window"). AFLDS has been maliciously attacked as part of an ongoing, orchestrated effort by media outlets who are making billions from Big Pharma and pandemic-related government advertising. The CDC’s own data debunks the government and pharmaceutical industry’s narrative that only vaccines can save us from from Covid-19. In fact, the CDC’s own numbers reveal the truth, which is that your own immune system can virtually always manage this virus. According to the CDC, even without treatment, the survival rate is 99.98% under age 50 and almost 95% over age 70. Both numbers approach 100% with early treatment. The vaccines will not protect you from delta and future variants, and have serious side effects, including death (>13,000 in the CDC database VAERS). Doctors have always known that natural immunity is far superior (more robust, longer lasting) to vaccine immunity, and the data is now accumulating that the [vaccines are failing](https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.08.24.21262415v1.full.pdf "This external link will open in a new window") with vaccinated people being 13x more likely than unvaccinated to be diagnosed and 27x more likely to become sick. The latest research portends great harm from the vaccines. A recent study of healthcare workers in Vietnam showed that [the vaccinated group had 251x the viral load](https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3897733 "This external link will open in a new window") of the unvaccinated group. This is consistent with ADE (antibody dependent enhancement), about which AFLDS warned the world in November, 2020. AFLDS continues to encourage the public to remain calm. The delta variant is very contagious but clinically milder than the original Wuhan variant. Covid-19 has a very high survivability rate and with an increased effort to protect physician independence and patient choice, we will save even more lives.
