FALSE: In the spring of 2020, Dr. Zelenko developed an alternative method of treating COVID-19, which is a combination of hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), azithromycin, and zinc sulfate, and is 99% effective against the virus. Using these drugs in America Zelenko cured thousands of patients at home, including former President Donald Trump, from the coronavirus. Coronavirus vaccines are dangerous to human health, especially for children and young people, and most vaccinated people will die from various complications within 2-3 years.
