INTRODUCTION

A Guide to Home-Based COVID treatment is built on the rapidly accumulating peer-reviewed published medical research, written by practicing physicians with decades of experience treating patients with all kinds of illnesses. We provide a step-by-step guide to medically sound early treatments that have a reasonable probability of success in this emergency pandemic. There are oral medications that are approved for other conditions, but not yet proven to be efficacious specifically for COVID-19 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In the global pandemic emergency, large scale randomized clinical trials have not been feasible in the face of such critical illness. The National Institutes of Health at this time does not recommend treatment outside of the hospital because there are no current medications specifically approved for outpatient COVID-19 treatment, even though the mortality rate once patients require hospitalization is unacceptably high.

Thus, treatment administered outside of the hospitalized setting should be under the supervision of a physician or licensed medical professional who is knowledgeable in the use of the medications and the monitoring approach for ambulatory, home-based COVID-19 as described in this guide. Patients who worsen in any way should seek
emergency room evaluation immediately.

There are four major pillars to infectious disease pandemic response:
1) Contagion control (stop the spread of the virus)
2) Early ambulatory, home-based treatment
3) Late-stage treatment in hospital
4) Vaccination

This guide will focus on the pillar of early, ambulatory, home-based medical treatment overseen by your physician, using a combination of available medicines, already FDA-approved for other medical conditions, and widely used in clinical medicine every day.
