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 he also made several breakthroughs while working in unbearable conditions in the forced labor camps.

Watch "Virus Whisperer" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
