LOS ANGELES, CA – The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced that the federal agency would take the radical step of prohibiting early treatments nationwide for COVID-infected patients, except those already hospitalized and requiring oxygen.
America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) founder Dr. Simone Gold, M.D., J.D., FABEM released the following statement in response to the decision.
“The measures taken by federal health officials to limit early treatment options for COVID-infected patients are nothing short of a death sentence for Americans. We stand with concerned physicians trying to preserve the doctor-patient relationship against government overreach and flawed science. Had this guidance been in place a month ago, President Trump would have been denied treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center. AFLDS urges the President to immediately reject such biased recommendations and continue to advocate for early treatment consistent with findings laid out in the American Journal of Medicine in early August.”
