Physicians Outline COVID-19 Protocol

By Woody Jenkins, Editor, Central City News — CENTRAL — What is the best protocol for physicians who want to treat patients with symptoms of COVID-19, instead of waiting until the patient gets worse and needs hospitalization?

For the past two years, millions of people with symptoms have been told to go home and take Tylenol until they get worse. Or call 911 if they can’t breathe.

But many physicians have wanted to take a more pro-active approach and begin treating the patient as soon as there are symptoms.

“There is no effective treatment,” the media and some public health authorities have said over and over.  However, many physicians have strongly believed there are effective treatments, and they have been using them.

Unfortunately, physicians can be cancelled, lose hospital or teaching privileges, and be ostracized for speaking out on what treatments have worked.

The Central City News has been asking physicians to explain what they have found to be the best protocol for early treatment.  Two physicians have responded to Central City News’ requests.  They are speaking openly about the protocols they use in treating patients in the early stages of COVID-19.

Central City News’ medical consultant Dr. Rhett Bergeron was willing to go on the record and tackle question.  Another physician the newspaper relies on for advice, Dr. Jeff Andry, was also willing to give his opinion.  Between the two of them, they have treated thousands of COVID-19 patients with great success.

Ironically, the protocol for the two doctors is almost identical.  The only variation is that Dr. Bergeron believes a higher dose of Vitamin D would be beneficial. When asked, Dr. Andry said he would not disagree.

Both physicians rely heavily on building the patient’s immune system and using off-the-shelf drugs which are proven safe for treating other illnesses but which also work on COVID-19.

Both emphasized early treatment — treatment within the first day or two if possible.

Dr. Andry said the protocol is used for vaccinated and unvaccinated patients.

He said that steroids can have an important role in treatment but only in the inflammatory phase.

Dr. Andry said he is encouraged that more physicians are utilizing monoclonal antibodies, but says they should also consider the other tools available, such as ivermectin.

He said ivermectin can be used as a treatment but also as a preventative.  He prescribes 0.2 mg per kg twice a week as a preventative.

Dr. Andry said, “For a long time, sick people who went to the hospital were sent home with no treatment and told to call 911 if they have trouble breathing.  The truth is, there are treatments, and those treatments are most effective early,” he said.

He said, “While I feel disappointed with how the medical profession as a whole has responded, there are many frontline doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, PAs, and paramedics who have been heroic in their efforts to provide care for Covid patients during this pandemic.”
