Dr. Zev Zelenko, a family medicine practitioner, has joined several high-profile doctors promoting the use of hydroxychloroquine in a clinical study of outpatients. The doctor is the latest among many doctors challenging the effectiveness of masking and promoting the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating Covid-19. As many so-called ‘dissident doctors’ reject the hegemonical dismissal of hydroxychloroquine’s prophylactic effectiveness, Dr. Zelenko has been publicly humiliated and has had posts removed by Twitter and other social media platforms. Many of these platforms, most notably YouTube, have publicly stated in no uncertain terms their policy of censoring all content that fails to conform to the WHO’s stance on all Covid-19 related information. Thus, medical professionals and scientists are limited to remaining mere mouthpieces of an international body with less than the exemplary track record of consistency, transparency and accountability. Dr. Zelenko has since joined the action in the US Supreme Court against Twitter and other social media platforms.
