Early treatment for COVID-19 was not prioritized. Why? Cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough says he believes health officials did not pursue early treatment options because they did not want to discourage Americans from being vaccinated.
“There was a belief, and I think there’s still a belief today among many stakeholders, is that the only way a vaccine is going to work is if every single person takes it. … In order to do that, if we have suppression of early treatment and people think there’s no other or option, they’re going to be much more likely to take the vaccine,” says McCullough. “I think, actually, a suppression of early treatment was by design a vaccine promotion strategy.”
In December, McCullough joined “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast to discuss failures to pursue early treatment options for COVID-19. Rogan was criticized for the interview with McCullough. Only a few weeks later, Dr. Robert Malone also joined Rogan’s show to discuss the pandemic. Afterward, a movement arose to deplatform Rogan.
“Joe Rogan is in the thick of it now,” McCullough says.
