Early treatment for COVID became the 'PET ROCK' of COVID when abused; consult Dr. Peter McCullough's early treatment algorithm (I was part of this development) for what early treatment is & is NOT!
see nasal-oral washes (povidone iodine) now prominent uptop in the protocol for like all upper respiratory tract viral infections starts in the nasopharynx and can be treated topically at the source.
We can reduce viral replication, in fact, kill viruses with agents directly applied in the nasal cavity and the back of the throat. Use of directly applied therapy is far more effective than swallowing pills or capsules or receiving an intravenous infusion. The nasal mucosa is a barrier for entry and if functioning well, allows little penetration of virions into systemic circulation where for example a monoclonal antibody could work. Thus, the McCullough Protocol© starting in 2021, featured the upfront use of nasal washes and oral gargles using viricidal agents.[ii] Many have asked which solutions, mixtures, and frequencies should be used? One should be reassured that is far more important to use some form of nasal and oral topical therapy as opposed to letting the infection take its course and ultimately invade the lungs and the internal organs.’
