A short clip introduced Zelenko, the doctor behind the COVID-19 treatment protocol based on hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). He had successfully treated more than 7,000 COVID-19 patients with his Zelenko protocol, but has received "daily death threats" for his efforts. Despite being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, Zelenko said it matters little to him.
"What matters is that we can use this platform to spread the true narrative and maybe save even more lives," he said.
Zelenko then explained: In March , my treatment protocol was based on the use of HCQ, zinc and the antibiotic azithromycin. But what happened on March 27, 2020 [is that] the ghoul – what I call [former New York] Gov. Andrew Cuomo – issued an executive order blocking pharmacies in New York state from dispensing HCQ. [It] was approved for other indications and it was safe, so I couldn't understand why that was obstructed."
A March 2020 Newsday report elaborated on Cuomo's ban on HCQ. His executive order (EO) from that month limited prescriptions of HCQ and the related chloroquine to COVID-19 patients in state-approved clinical trials. The EO also permitted its prescription as an antimalarial or autoimmune treatment as per the Food and Drug Administration's approval. In both cases, prescriptions for both drugs can only be for 14 days with no refills allowed.
"I lost a few patients because of that EO [since] they couldn't get medicine. I found peer-reviewed papers about a substance called quercetin, and so I started using that. I saw really great results and I open-sourced that information. I let everyone knew about quercetin, which is over the counter," Zelenko continued.

According to Zelenko, viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 reproduce by hijacking the metabolic machinery of cells to make copies of themselves. They make use of an enzyme called RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) to reproduce its genetic material. However, zinc targets RdRp to prevent viral replication – but it needs to be delivered to the human system through another substance. Zelenko used HCQ as it was one of the most effective, but New York's ban on the drug led him to use quercetin to get a favorable outcome.
"The two reasons people die from COVID-19 are the moronic doctor who delays care and the tyrannical government that obstructs access to life-saving medication. But now I can say: 'Clay, listen: Go to the vitamin shop; buy quercetin, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin D; use it in the right way – and you'll be OK," Zelenko told the Brighteon.TV host.

The family physician pointed out a piece of information he claims the government is suppressing.
"COVID-19 is [actually] two diseases. There's the viral phase, and then there's the inflammatory phase [where] your immune system comes in, destroys the lungs and causes blood clots. The key is to treat COVID-19 in the first few days of the onset of symptoms to prevent the complications from ever happening."
Zelenko pointed out that the best type of COVID-19 treatment is "to prevent lung damage" rather than dealing with it when it happens. He continued: "It's the timing that's important, and it's imperative to start treatment [on the first three days]. The sooner, the better."
To make this possible, Zelenko released the Z-Stack tablet that contains the four pillars of his treatment protocol for COVID-19. He formulated the tablet in response to some of his patients complaining that they were either unable to obtain the individual supplements or having a hard time getting the exact formulation.
The physician also offered a prescription for those seeking a return to normality, which he borrowed from the book of Psalms. "'Turn away from bad, do good and live.' That's a very good prescription, and let me define the terms."
"'Turn away from bad,' in this particular case, [means] don't get into the fear. Do not put on [your] face diaper, don't listen to the mandates. "Do good" means if you're in the higher-risk category, take antiviral prevention. If God forbid, you do get sick – start treatment within the first few days and you will live," Zelenko told Clark.
