Conservative commentary? What is that? Dr. Bartlett is a superstar and everyone should be listening carefully to what he says!A well-respected doctor in Texas is advocating that we respond to the virus according to the way it is being handled in countries with very low COVID death rates (Japan, Taiwan, Singapore). Unlike the countries with high death rates, these densely-populated countries are beating COVID by:
1. Testing everyone
2. Treating early (none of this "go home and wait" stuff), and
3. Treating it with asthma medications
He started doing this, and has not had one patient die yet. He is trying to get the word out that there IS effective treatment if people will get tested and then treated early. This is also happening in the three countries mentioned -- which did not close down, but DID do widespread testing and early treatment.
Trigger warning: his YouTube video contains a LOT of conservative commentary. If that upsets you, please try to look past that for the substance of what is being discussed: Dr. Richard Barlett on Treating COVID
There are far too many instances like this. Dying from Covid and with Covid are two different things entirely.One of my friend's friends' kids got kicked in the head by a horse and passed away in the ER. They labeled her death certificate covid 19. The hospital likes to get paid the extra 38,000 dollars per covid death.
The fatalities are in the tank which is a great thing. I don't even listen to the news any more as they are completely off base.That does make logical sense to me.
The government does not need to "get serious." The death rate is very very low. We have to have herd immunity. Let's look to Sweden as an example of how to deal with Covid.I believe it's more when general population gets serious.
