Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a New York based primary care physician, announced that a retrospective analysis based on his patient data is available to read online at www.thezelenkoprotocol.com. The study, which has been submitted for peer review, found that early intervention and treatment of risk stratified COVID-19 patients in the outpatient setting resulted in five times less hospitalizations and deaths. The medications used in the treatment approach were zinc, low dose hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin.

Prior studies of COVID-19 treatments have been largely based on severely ill patients in the hospital. This study examines outcomes of patients treated after their first visit to the doctor's office. Using simple risk stratification criteria, Dr. Zelenko identified which patients required prescriptions for the triple drug therapy, and prescribed these medications for five days.



The main results show that of 141 patients who were treated with the triple therapy, only 2.8% (4/141) were hospitalized compared to 15.4% of an untreated control group (58/377) (odds ratio 0.16, 95% CI 0.06-0.5; p<0.001). Only 0.71% (1/141) patients died in the treatment group, versus 3.5% (13/377) in the untreated group (odds ratio 0.2, 95% CI 0.03-1.5; p=0.16).

    hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin CANNOT be good, since Trump said it might.. Wouldnt matter if it saved everyone, it would still be bad. Note that Trump has stopped promoting it, probably to remove the stigma he brought to an otherwise effective drug.

    It would more impressive if he had at least 1000. patients in his study. At his level it is more anecdotal than necessarily scientifically valid. However, the operative phrase is "early intervention" and that is the key. Personally, if I become infected with Covid I will most likely go with a budesimide nebulizer plus azithromycin and zinc (Dr Bartlett's protocol) at the onset.

      With over 500 patients studied and one third being treated with hydroxycholoroquine, zinc, and azithromyacin, I'd say it was a pretty comprehensive study - hardly anecdotal.

      There are at least a dozen other doctors with similar stories, they just haven't taken the time to write up their findings in the same manner.
