COVID 19 Early Treatment – The I-MASK + Protocol by Front-line COVID 19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC)
The I-MASK+ protocol created by the FLCCC for COVID 19 early treatment has saved millions of lives & could save yours or your loved ones too!
The FLCCC and dozens of doctors, with the help of Dr. Pierre Kory, In October 2020 developed the I-MASK+ (at-home / early phase) protocol for early at-home and outpatient treatment for COVID-19, along side the MATH+ (in hospital / late phase) treatment protocol; both translated into multiple languages. Thousands of doctors and millions of individuals from countries around the world, have downloaded the I-MASK+ protocol to quickly squash early symptoms of COVID-19 infection. The protocol is most effective administered the moment COVID 19 symptoms arise, where it can begin to hinder viral replication and help prevent severe infection, by stopping the virus dead in it’s tracks.
“The protocols complement each other, and both are physiologic-based combination treatment regimens developed by leaders in critical care medicine. All the component medicines are FDA-approved (except ivermectin), inexpensive, readily available and have been used for decades with well-established safety profiles.”About the I-MASK+ Protocol for COVID-19
The I-MASK+ treatment is centered around Ivermectin, and uses a combination of medicines proven effective in early treatment of COVID-19 infection. If you bought the media’s “horse paste” narrative, read our article on Ivermectin in it’s entirety)…ivermectin (yes human-use Ivermectin prescribed by a doctor), is a well-known, FDA-approved anti-parasite drug that has been used successfully for more than four decades to treat onchocerciasis “river blindness” and other parasitic diseases. It is one of the safest drugs known; even safer then aspirin according to the WHO’s own VigiBase database. It is on the WHO’s list of essential medicines, has been given 3.7 billion times around the globe, and has won the Nobel prize for its global and historic impacts in eradicating endemic parasitic infections in many parts of the world.
“Our medical discovery of a rapidly growing published medical evidence base, demonstrating Ivermectin’s unique and highly potent ability to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication and to suppress inflammation, prompted our team to use ivermectin for prevention and treatment in all stages of COVID-19.”About the I-MASK+ Protocol for COVID-19
I-MASK+ QuickStart Table(s)
Below is a straightforward table to get started immediately on the I-MASK+ Protocol. The I-MASK+ protocol – First Line Agents, can be taken for both COVID 19 prevention and early treatment, Second Line Agents are specifically meant for early treatment, when infection has already taken root. Additional Information and specifics can be found on the I-MASK+ PDF further below.

Anti-septic Anti-virals | COVID 19 Early Treatment
In addition to the above medicines…it’s suggested you use an antiviral mouthwash throughout the day to help clear the throat and sinuses.
Antiviral mouthwash : Gargle 3 x daily (do not swallow; must contain chlorhexidine, povidone-iodine, or cetylpyridinium chloride). Iodine nasal spray/drops : Use 1 % povidone-iodine commercial product as per instructions 2–3 x daily. If 1 %-product not available, must first dilute the more widely available 10 %-solution 6 and apply 4–5 drops to each nostril every 4 hours. (No more than 5 days in pregnancy.)
To make 1 % povidone/iodine concentrated solution from 10 % povidone/iodine solution, it must
be diluted first. One dilution method is as follows:
- First pour 1 ½ tablespoons (25 ml) of 10 % povidone/iodine solution into a nasal irrigation bottle of 250 ml.
- Then fill to top with distilled, sterile or previously boiled water.
- Tilt head back, apply 4–5 drops to each nostril. Keep tilted for a few minutes, let drain.
Calculation for Ivermectin Dose (0.2mg per kg)
- Tablets can be halved for more accurate dosing. Then round to nearest half tablet above
- Note that Ivermectin is available in different tablet strengths (e.g. with 3, 5 or 6 mg) and administration forms (tablets, drops, etc) depending on the country (please refer to package information).
- In the table below they calculate doses using 3mg tablets; the most common dose per tablet in the USA.
- If your tablets contain a different amount of Ivermectin than the 3mg dose, you must calculate the number of tablets to equal the dose of ivermectin required.
|Body Weight (lb)||Body Weight (kg)||Dose (mg)||Dose (3mg/tablets)|
|70-90 lb||32-40 kg||8 mg||3 tablets = 9 mg|
|91-110 lb||41-50 kg||10 mg||3.5 tablets|
|111-130 lb||51-59 kg||12 mg||4 tablets|
|131-150 lb||60-68 kg||13.5 mg||4.5 tablets|
|151-170 lb||69-77 kg||15 mg||5 tablets|
|171-190 lb||78-86 kg||16 mg||5.5 tablets|
|191-210 lb||87-95 kg||18 mg||6 tablets|
|211-230 lb||96-104 kg||20 mg||7 tablets = 21mg|
|231-250 lb||105-113 kg||22 mg||7.5 tablets = 22.5 mg|
|251-270 lb||114-122 kg||24 mg||8 tablets|
|271-290 lb||123-131 kg||26 mg||9 tablets = 27 mg|
|291-310 lb||132-140 kg||28 mg||9.5 tablets = 28.5 mg|

Second Line Agents (COVID 19 Early Treatment Only – Listed in order of priority)
Add to the ‘First Line Agents” above if you meet the following criteria:
- ≥ 5 days of symptoms
- Poor response to ‘First Line Agents (therapies)’ above
- Significant comorbidities (obese, diabetes, cancer, etc)
|DUAL ANTI-ANDROGEN THERAPY|
|Spironolactone||100 mg 2x daily for 10 days|
|Dutasteride||2mg on day 1, followed by 1mg daily for 10 days|
|Finasteride (substitute in place of Dutasteride if not available)||10mg daily for 10 days|
|Fluvoxamine||50mg 2x daily for 10 days|
Some individuals who are prescribed fluvoxamine experience acute anxiety which needs to be carefully monitored for and treated by the prescribing clinician to prevent rare escalation to suicidal or violent behavior.
|Fluoxetine (substitute in place of Fluvoxamine if not available – avoid if patient is already on an SSRI)||30mg daily for 10 days|
|MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY THERAPY||This medication requires an infusion center. To find the nearest|
location in the U.S., visit www.infusioncenter.org or call for eligibility and location 1-877-332-6585 for English and 1-877-366-0310 for Spanish.
|Sotrovimab||500mg each in a single intravenous infusion. Antibody therapy is for patients within 5-days of first symptoms), non-severe symptoms, and one or more risk factors: Age >55y; BMI>25; Pregnancy; chronic lung, heart, or kidney disease; diabetes|
Pulse Oximeter | Covid 19 Early Treatment
It is recommended at this stage (≥ 5 days of symptoms) that you check blood oxygen saturation frequently, using a pulse oximeter (due to asymptomatic hypoxia) The limitations of home pulse oximeters should be recognized, and validated devices are preferred. Multiple readings should be taken over the course of the day, and a downward trend should be regarded as ominous. Baseline or ambulatory desaturation < 94% should prompt hospital admission. The following guidance is suggested:
- Use the index or middle finger; avoid the toes or ear lobe
- Only accept values associated with a strong pulse signal
- Obeserve reading for 30-60 seconds to identify the most common value
- Remove nail polish from the finger on which measurements are made (this is because it shines light through your nail and finger to measure oxygen saturation in your blood)
- Warm cold extremities prior to measurement
Third Line Agents – Corticosteroids
Add to the ‘Second Line Agents” above if you meet the following criteria:
- After 7-10 days from first symptoms
- Patient has either abnormal chest x-ray, shortness of breath, or oxygen saturation of 88-94% (you can measure using a pulse oximeter which can be ordered off amazon; its the device that clips over your finger to show pulse and blood oxygen saturation).
|Prednisone||1mg/kg daily for 5 days followed by slow taper or escalation according to patient response (observed reduction in symptomatic infection)|
|or Methylprednisolone||1mg/kg daily for 5 days followed by slow taper or escalation according to patient response (observed reduction in symptomatic infection)|
