Virus whisperer

Virus Whisperer – a new RT Documentary tells the life story of Lev Zilber – a legendary Soviet virologist and immunologist who laid the foundation for many therapeutic approaches, including the plasma anti-body transfusions used to treat COVID-19 patients today. He was arrested three times and exiled to a Gulag. Not only did he survive, but made several breakthroughs while working in unbearable conditions in the forced labour camps.
