YouTube removes ‘Plandemic’ video with coronavirus claims by Dr. Judy Mikovits
“The Plandemic,” a 25-minute clip from an upcoming documentary, was taken off of YouTube this week for violating the Google-owned video site’s community guidelines. The video centered on Dr. Judy Mikovits, a former chronic fatigue researcher who claims the federal government is behind a “plague of corruption” to inflate profits from a potential vaccine even as COVID-19 threatens lives.
In the video, Mikovits — a molecular biologist described by some sites as an anti-vaxxer — tells filmmaker Mikki Willis that she was thrown in jail and placed under a gag order to silence her research suggesting a retrovirus known as xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) may be a cause for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). She published a since the discredited paper in 2009 and suggested the deadly virus was being delivered through vaccines.
