(Jun. 30, 2022) — Late Thursday afternoon, Zelenko Labs announced that its founder and one of the earliest pioneers in the treatment of COVID-19, Dr. Vladimir “Zev” Zelenko, passed away.
According to CitizenFreePress earlier in the day, Zelenko had been intubated for the last 48 hours. In a video posted at the bottom of the article and on YouTube, Zelenko delivered a message to his followers reporting he was admitted to the hospital with the finding of a new tumor and the complication of an attached blood clot.
The CitizenFreePress article now bears the title, “Dr. Zev Zelenko passes away…”
Prior to the pandemic, Zelenko had a lung removed as a result of cancer and was himself a COVID survivor.
In the early days of the declared public-health emergency, Zelenko advocated for the administration of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 along with vitamins and minerals. Later, when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo forbade the use of hydroxychloroquine outside of a hospital setting, Zelenko substituted the bioflavonoid quercetin and the decades-old drug ivermectin.
Within the last two weeks, Zelenko announced the launch of the Zelenko Freedom Foundation with the purpose of providing “funding to social entities and social activities surrounding education, leadership development, health literacy, advocacy, public policy, social, health and community development.”
“All of us enjoy a limited amount of time on this planet,” Zelenko remarked upon the announcement of the endeavor. “I have been blessed by God to extend my life – in spite of a terminal cancer diagnosis – for years. I know my time is limited, which is why I am creating the Zelenko Freedom Foundation and instructing my company – Z-Labs – to donate 10% of all proceeds to support the critical work of this foundation.”
Although banned from social media in December 2020, the news of his passing was trending on Twitter on Thursday evening.
As stated in his obituary, Zelenko did not believe that hastily-prepared vaccine products were the solution to the pandemic, particularly for children, who cannot give “informed consent” and which, to a Rabbinical Jewish audience, he termed amounted to “child sacrifice” due to the chance of serious side effects.
His obituary continues:
As to the rare form of cancer with which he was diagnosed in early 2018 and told of its 100 percent terminal prognosis, Zev repeatedly referred to it as having been a gift from God. “My cancer is what prepared me for the Covid-19 pandemic,” He would say. “Without it, I would not have developed my passion for searching for answers that others said couldn’t be found, and without it I could not have held to the persecution and ridicule I received for daring to treat patients. I have looked death in the eye and I have been made ready to meet God. I fear nothing on this earth.”
A man of profound faith, he believed until the end that God had created a special mission for him on this earth, and that the prayers of millions had kept him alive long enough to fulfill that mission.
Update, July 1, 2022, 7:57 a.m. EDT: Steve Kirsch reported on his blog this morning that Dr. Zelenko’s memoir will be published soon, titled, “Zelenko: How to decapitate the Serpent.”
