VIRUS: Fear and freedom

| November 20, 2020 1:00 AM

One America News Network (OAN) showed 18 physicians standing on the steps of SCOTUS. Several doctors took turns speaking of personal experiences treating patients.

“Dr. Tyson is a board-certified family medical physician. He has 14 years of experience with hospital and emergency rooms.“

“We looked the coronavirus head on. We saw over 20,000 patients in person,” said Dr. Tyson. According to him, he treated 1,900 positive patients whose age ranged from 11 months to 90 years.

“We treated this virus early. We treated this virus aggressively. We only had one hospitalization and zero deaths. Zero deaths, because we were not going to stand by and allow people to die without treatment,” Dr. Tyson said.

“We were at the heart of the pandemic due to our large Hispanic and diabetic population.” Dr. Tyson said Imperial Valley shares an international border in the south with Mexicali, Mexico, which has a population of 1.5 million residents.

“We were told to stop testing. We were told to stop prescribing. But we didn’t. We continued to treat patients,” said Dr. Tyson. “We sent them home with treatment. We re-evaluated and every one of them survived.”

Finally, he said we can go back to school, to work, to life, and to being American again. “We do not need to let fear take away our freedom.”

If physicians in Idaho adopted Dr. Tyson’s methods, should we have the same results? Few hospitalizations and zero deaths?
