At the beginning of 2020, Dr. Peter McCullough was a highly regarded practicing physician, program director, teacher, and clinical investigator at a major academic medical center in Dallas, TX. 

When COVID-19 arrived in March, he felt a duty to Nnd a treatment for the disease. He wasn’t alone.

Other doctors all over the world were also searching for a cure. They followed the longstanding principle that it’s best to tackle a sickness early, before it becomes life threatening.

This is the story of how Dr. McCullough and his colleagues developed an early treatment protocol of generic, repurposed drugs and supplements that has saved millions of COVID-19 patients from hospitalization and death.

In spite of their success, their early treatment protocol was not welcomed by public health ofNcials. On the contrary, the news of their promising results was dismissed as soon as it was reported. At Nrst this seemed like conventional skepticism, but then fraudulent papers maligning the protocol’s repurposed drugs were published in academic medical journals. This and other acts of fraud revealed that a coordinated smear campaign against early treatment was being waged.

Dr. McCullough and his colleagues soon found themselves censured, censored, viliNed in the media, and Nred from their jobs. The greatest victims of the smear campaign were COVID-19 patients who were consequently deprived of early treatment. Hundreds of thousands needlessly died of the disease.

At the same time early treatment was suppressed, the US government and mainstream media proclaimed that the cure to COVID-19 lay in a new generation of vaccines that were being developed at warp speed. These were heralded as a forthcoming panacea that would save mankind and restore normalcy. As soon as they were mass deployed, public health ofNcials would lift the restrictions on social and economic life.

The Courage to Face Covid-19 recounts how Dr. McCullough and his colleagues began their work by Nghting a novel infectious disease, and then became leaders in Nghting the tyrannical regime that endangers our American way of life.
