It has now been longer than a year since the vaccine for COVID-19 has been readily available. And at his point, it has become likely that the people who haven’t been vaccinated will continue to refuse to do so.
Still, there are hucksters out there who are trying to suggest alternatives to treat COVID-19. Alabama-based Christopher Key is one of them. Back in January, Key suggested that drinking urine was the best way to prevent severe infection from the disease. Now he’s telling his followers to inject urine directly into their bloodstream.
Back in January, Key said in a video posted to social media, “the antidote that we have seen now, and we have tons and tons of research, is urine therapy. OK, and I know to a lot of you this sounds crazy, but guys, God’s given us everything we need. This has been around for centuries. When I tell you this, please take it with a grain of salt.”
Now, just imbibing urine doesn’t seem to go far enough for the conspiracy theorist. According to the Daily Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo, “Anti-vaccine “Vaccine Police” leader Christopher Key, who falsely believes drinking your urine cures Covid-19, has now moved on to ‘injecting [his own] urine into [his] body’ and encouraging his followers to do the same.”
