Orthodox doctor who promoted coronavirus cocktail leaves community

Leaders of the Kiryas Joel community spoke out publicly against Zelenko in an open letter in March.

The announcement comes after Zelenko was accused by community leaders of spreading disinformation about the rate of coronavirus infection in Kiryas Joel, leading to discrimination against residents of the village. Zelenko is also being investigated by a federal prosecutor over his claim that a study of the drugs he promoted had won approval from the Food and Drug Administration.


  1. Hmm...
    I wonder what happened. He recently said he was finally starting a real clinical trial in the next few days. Will it still happen?

    Doesn't sound good. It's stuff for the conspiracy theorists

    A real clinical trial? Considering how shoddy his "data" has been, does he even know how to run one?

  4. I think he got a hospital involved to run it for him, actually. I forget where he said it was going to be. Maybe something in Long Island.

  5. He treated 700 patients in Monroe and all became well except 1 !
    Monroe kiryat yoel had only 10 deaths! 9 treated by other Docters

    Monsey had 200 deaths Boropark /Flatbush 600 deaths Lakewood 200
    this was reported on matzav last week

    This Great Dr. is beloved by the community but the administration has other interests for causing this great zaddik this distress .I dont think Reb Ahron had any part in this strictly he local bureaucrats.

  6. but no one knows if they even had covid.! how can you proclaim a cure without knowing if there was the disease? fake news!

  7. The fact remains Monroe had only 10 deaths far far less proportionally then any other frum community
    by the way crown heights was hit the hardest with having as much frum fatalities as Lakewood even as Lakewood is ten times the population

  8. how do you know he was responsible?
