A doctor in New York has had some amazing results in treating patients who have contracted the coronavirus.
He says that he has treated 350 patients who had the virus and cured them all with a 100% success rate.
Dr. Vladmir Zelenko says that he has been using hydroxychloroquine with zinc. While it is true that perhaps not every person would have had major problems with the virus, based on statistics there should have been some who would have required hospitalization and even possibly a death or two.
But some are cautioning against Dr. Zelenko's claims and saying that they were actually debunked.
I don't know that I'd go that far to be honest, but I won't rule it out either. He's basically doing what they're already doing just instead of Z-packs (Zithromax), he's using zinc.
In an interview with Vice President Mike Pence, Hannity dramatically held up a letter from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a family practitioner from Monroe, New York who claims to have achieved a 100 percent success rate in preventing hospitalization for 500 coronavirus patients using a combination of three different drugs. Hannity had interviewed Zelenko about these claims on his radio show earlier on Monday.
However, Hannity did not mention on air that another of Dr. Zelenko’s claims was debunked by a county public health official just last week, after the doctor posted an “unsubstantiated and irresponsible” Facebook video that predicted — based on positive results from a mere nine out of 14 tests — the a massive outbreak of the disease would hit the Hasidic village of Kiryas Joel. Zelenko did not respond to press inquiries seeking comment on the story.
Also of note: As of last Thursday, Orange County, where both Kiryas Joel and Monroe are located, had officially reported a total of 68 positive cases of coronavirus. Zelenko, however, claims that he has treated 350 coronavirus patients from Kiryas Joel alone and nearly 150 more from nearby areas. Despite these red flags, Hannity read off the exact dosage and treatment durations that Zelenko claims has stopped the disease in his conversation with the head of the nation’s coronavirus task force, Vice President Mike Pence.
Others are cautiously optimistic about the treatment. On Sean Hannity's show, he brought in two medical experts to discuss the treatment and while they're hopeful for using hydroxychloroquine, one of the doctors said that he's more hopeful about other treatments that was used against SARS in 2003. It may not pose as much risk as the hydroxychloroquine does either.
