Disinfo: Vitamin C administered intravenously treats patients with coronavirus, a finding censored so far

Summary

Specialists have learned that a common intravenous drug can treat coronavirus. Why are the doctors and specialists who support this treatment discredited or censored?

Intravenous administration of vitamin C is already being used in China against COVID-19 coronavirus.

The editor of the Chinese edition of OMNS, Dr. Richard Cheng, reports from China about the first confirmed study of intravenous administration of 12,000 to 24,000 mg/day of vitamin C.

Disproof

Recurring the narrative that a remedy against coronavirus has already been found, but the medical ”establishment” is opposed to it. Read a similar case claiming that a remedy for coronavirus has been developed in Ukraine here.

No study has so far confirmed that vitamin C can treat Coronavirus-infected patients. A study published on 1 March 2020 in the Chinese Journal of Infectious Diseases, quoted by Le Monde, reports that the injections are recommended at doses much lower than those mentioned by Richard Cheng: 100 to 200 mg per day for the sickest patients. These injections were done in addition to a battery of treatments, meaning that the healing of patients can not be attributed only to vitamin C.

A clinical test has started in the United States on 11 February 2020 to inject intravenous doses of vitamin C into patients suffering from coronavirus, but no results are yet posted. ”Intravenous application of vitamin C will result in much higher and faster levels of the vitamin in the blood than any amount found in vitamin C supplements taken orally. Though this approach could increase vitamin C’s mild protective effect, this is yet hypothetical and intravenous injection comes with its own risks, such as infection, blood vessel damage, air embolism or blood clots,” writes Peter McCaffery, Professor of Biochemistry, the University of Aberdeen in an explanatory report for The conversation.

NATO uses COVID-19 to mobilise Western military forces against Russia

NATO uses COVID-19 to mobilise Western military forces against Russia. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has been announced by the World Health Organisation, has led to Western military forces mobilising against Russia. However, the Western “non-brothers” always forget that combat readiness is a normal condition for Russians.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about NATOaggressive, anti-Russian Western policies and about coronavirus as a biological weapon.

According to the World Health Organization, coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV)A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans. Researches done so far show that it is a virus named ”zoonotic”, meaning it is transmitted between animals and people. Read more about Coronavirus here.

Mainstream media ignores the fake news campaign against Russia

No mainstream media outlet is reporting a massive ‘coronavirus’ fake news campaign, which targeted Russia itself. Apparently, this does not fit the narrative. This campaign comes jointly with an increase of activity of various Western-funded anti-government organizations inside Russia.

Disproof

An unfounded claim and a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative presenting all activities of NGOs, media or civil society activists as measures to overthrow the power in post-Soviet states.

Coronavirus got on Earth out of space through a meteorite and spreads through the wind

Over China, on October 11, 2019, a meteorite exploded and released the infectious particles of COVID-19, which now spread through the wind. The meteorite was seen above the city of Wuhan, which is the first epicentre of the disease.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory about the COVID-19.

COVID-19 is of natural origin and has been transmitted to humans from animals, as is the case with other types of coronaviruses according to numerous independent researches. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading across the world.
