  • The Facts:Dr. Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, claims he spoke to a woman in Wuhan, China who believes her family was saved from COVID-19 by Vitamin C. We explore the story.
  • Reflect On:Given the ongoing clinical trials, professionals around the world feel there is a strong possibility vitamin C can be effective. So why is the WHO working so hard to cast so much doubt?

This is simply not true, as clinical trials examining the efficacy to treat the the virus have already begun. According to the doctor in the video below, three in China have already begun, as he states on his Youtube channel in multiple videos that he has posted.
