" Dr. Peter McCullough recently spoke to the Texas Senate HHS Committee regarding his personal experiences treating COVID19 patients. A novice to social media, he explains to the Committee how he was driven by his desire to share his clinical knowledge in successfully treating COVID19 patients to create a Youtube video, only to find it quickly scrubbed from the site.
Once Operation Warp Speed began no one pursued treatment options for COVID19 patients and any mention of a treatment was quickly pulled from social media sites. Sadly, he explained how once a person tests positive for the virus they are essentially sent home and told to quarantine. Dr. McCullough’s protocols include treating patients with a drug to treat the virus in addition to corticosteroid drugs and other anti-inflammatories along with anti-thrombotic drugs, a combination which has proven to keep 85% of patients from requiring hospitalization at all."

GOP Congressman Says Fauci Needs To Answer For Why His Agency Bypassed Oversight Of Funding To Wuhan Lab
