Vernon Coleman: What the papers said (before March 2020)

Since the beginning of 2020, when he first exposed the ‘coronavirus hoax’ in a banned video (now available again on this website) Dr Vernon Coleman has been attacked, demonised, monstered and lied about on the mainstream media and the internet. Below you will find what the papers said about him BEFORE March 2020 - when he first explained how he knew that the alleged pandemic was a hoax and that the hidden agenda was compulsory vaccination, the annihilation of the elderly and the disappearance of cash.
