Billionaire politician Clive Palmer refused to be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit during his recent case of COVID-19, instead opting to take a cocktail of anti-virals including controversial medications at his Queensland mansion.

A team of specialists who treated former US president Donald Trump pumped a cocktail of five anti-viral drugs into billionaire Clive Palmer to save him from double pneumonia and the more deadly Delta Covid variant.

The US-based team used Zoom calls with Australian doctors to monitor his progress, and they fast-tracked Mr Palmer onto a US drug trial to administer the life-saving dosage of anti-virals.

“I would have died otherwise, without doubt,’’ Mr Palmer said.

Two of the anti-viral drugs included the controversial agents, ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.

The Therapeutics Goods Association, which assesses the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 treatments, has not approved ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.

Last year further restrictions were placed on general practitioners to prescribe these treatments.

After contracting the more deadly Delta variant in Sydney, Mr Palmer was rushed to Pindara Hospital on February 27.

There were serious concerns for his health because he is 67, in a higher weight category for his height and unvaccinated.

In his first interview since contracting Covid-19, Mr Palmer said he was given the super-strong steroid, Dexamethasone, which keeps the lungs functioning.

He was told by doctors that he had double pneumonia and Covid, and would be taken to ICU and put on a ventilator.

“I said that won’t be happening and I went home,’’ he said.

His senior staff had been in touch with controversial gastroenterologist, professor Thomas Borody, who organised the US specialists to intervene.

Instead, he went home, where a local team of four doctors took instructions from the US specialists on how to treat the billionaire, now said to be worth $18 billion.

An ambulance was on stand by near his Sovereign Islands mansion if he had to be rushed back to hospital.

“The US specialists, a couple of whom treated Trump for Covid, were very strong about not going onto a ventilator,’’ he said.

“I’ve been told that without the anti-viral intervention on that Sunday night I would likely have been dead within five hours.’’

Mr Palmer, who is not vaccinated, said the US-based team had put him onto a new trial that allowed him to take the anti-viral cocktail.

“I started to come good within 10 hours,’’ he said.

“I’m still not a 100 per cent. I get tired pretty easily but I’m not getting any younger I suppose.

“I had faith in the US doctors, and I’m not being critical of the Pindara people at all. They believed ventilation was necessary but I had alternative advice and I stuck with that.’’

Medical experts are clear that double or triple vaccination status sharply improves chances of  surviving a severe dose of the disease.

Mr Palmer said the near-death experience had not altered his view on vaccination.

“I’m pro choice,’’ he said.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation strongly advises that the highest priority for providing optimal community-wide protection against COVID-19 is achieving very high vaccination coverage for all eligible Australians.
