Letter to the Danish Prime Minister by Dr. Matthias Rath

There are safe alternatives available immediately to effective fight the coronavirus pandemic

Dear Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen,

We have followed the reports about the severe side effects that occurred in your country in connection with the use of a certain vaccines. I feel it is incumbent upon me to inform you with this letter about safe and effective ways available immediately to help protect the people of your country against this pandemic.

I am the founder of an independent nonprofit research institute operating in the field of medical science. Our team of senior scientists and medical doctors worked together with the late two-time Noble Laureate Linus Pauling. Dr. Pauling was one of the most distinguished scientists of the 20th century. His discoveries included principles of immunology, the basic structures of proteins, as well as the first known genetic disease, sickle cell anemia. In his later years, Dr. Pauling became inter-ested in the role of micronutrients in the fight against viral diseases, including influenza and the human immune deficiency virus (HIV).

Over the past two decades, our research team has continued this ground-breaking work in sci-ence-based natural health and has recently applied it to the global effort to control the coronavi-rus pandemic.

In this dramatic situation, where the health of millions of people in Denmark and many other countries are at stake, I feel it is incumbent on me to inform you about the scientific break-throughs we have achieved at our Research Institute.

A science-based safe and affordable strategy to help prevent all coronavirus mutations

Since the beginning of the current pandemic, the international research community has been fo-cusing on developing a vaccine that is able to block the binding of the coronavirus to the cellular receptor (ACE2) – the viral ‘anchor’ and ‘entry door’ on the surface of human cells – via which the virus infects the human body. The downside of this strategy is obvious: a high rate of coronavirus mutations will require a multitude of vaccines to have even a chance of controlling the future pandemics resulting from different coronavirus variants.

Foreseeing this dilemma, our research team, from the beginning of this pandemic, chose a scien-tific approach that promises to protect the people of the world against potentially all coronavirus mutations – the reason current and future ones. In order to accomplish this goal, our research team studied the defense mechanisms via which human cells protect themselves against attacks from any type of coronavirus, as well as the biological molecules that regulate these processes.

n the first step, we focused on reducing the number (expression) of the ACE2 cellular surface receptors – the entry door for all known subtypes of coronaviruses. Subsequently, we studied the impact of micronutrients on the inhibition of other key cellular mechanisms of coronavirus infections.

There is only one category of molecules that can accomplish such a comprehensive task as to reg-ulate the cellular software (DNA), down-regulate the production of proteins required for coro-navirus infections (ACE2 receptors), as well as curb the entire machinery of enzymes hijacked by the virus in order to replicate within human cells. These molecules are micronutrients and include vitamins, minerals, and other natural, bioactive substances.

Our comprehensive research studies have determined the most effective bioactive molecules in the defense against the coronavirus infection of human cells. Moreover, our research established that these natural molecules were most effective in interfering with key mechanisms of corona-virus infections when used in specific combinations that enable the individual components to interact synergistically.

Specific micronutrient combinations are able to significantly inhibit all known key mechanisms of coronavirus infections simultaneously, including:

  1. 1. The significant inhibition of the binding of coronavirus surface proteins (spikes) to ACE2 recep-tors on the surface of human cells.
  2. The significant inhibition of the production of ACE2 receptors by human cells, thereby limiting the binding of coronaviruses to these cells and their chances of infection.
  3. The significant inhibition of all key proteins (enzymes) involved in the uptake as well as multi-plication of coronaviruses inside human cells.
  4. A significant increase in general immune system function, including the production of immune defense cells (leukocytes), their ability to migrate to the site of infection, (chemotaxis), and the removal of viruses and other infective invaders (phagocytosis).

The following graph summarizes the compelling necessity for the reorientation of international research, in order to increase the likelihood of achieving a comprehensive control of coronavirus pandemics.

Focus of Vaccination Strategy:

Blocking one subtype of coronavirus


Vaccination strategy against coronavirus pandemic

All vaccines presently applied to humans with the promise to help curb the current pandemic have been developed against the coronavirus subtype that first appeared in China in late 2019.

Since antibodies are specifically modeled against the surface structures (spikes) of this specific subtype of the coronavirus, current vaccines are not known to protect against viral mutations.

The manufacturers of the current vaccines are fully aware that any new coronavirus mutation could render their vaccines ineffective. Hence, they merely claim that their current vaccines would also ‘work’ against the new mutations – but without any proof in the form of a clinical study with patients infected by the mutated virus. Even if it should turn out that some of the anti-coronavirus vaccines developed thus far could provide some protection against one or another coronavirus mutation, any new mutation (designated in the graphic above as ‘XY’) is potentially able to infect patients who have already been vaccinated. Thus, with every new virus mutation, human-kind is exposed to the risk of experiencing a similar or even greater crisis than that which has occurred as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Focus of Micronutrient Strategy:

Reinforcing defense of human body cells against

attacks from all subtypes of coronaviruses

Micronutrient strategy against coronavirus pandemic

The application of micronutrients to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic takes an entirely different approach to that of vaccines. It takes advantage of the known ability of these bioactive substances to strengthen the resistance of body cells against viruses and other infectious agents.

Our research shows that specific combinations of micro-nutrients (shown as diamond shapes in the graphic above) are effective against coronaviruses. These micronutrient combinations are able to inhibit all key mechanisms of coronavirus infection of human cells. This includes the inhibition of viral binding to the cell surface, cell entry, as well as viral multiplication inside the cells. In addition, micronutrients are known to strengthen general immune defense mechanisms. This includes the production of immune cells, their migration to the site of infection, and their ability to kill and remove viruses and other infectious invaders (phagocytosis).

Further details of this groundbreaking research are documented on the websites listed below.


In summary, micronutrients simultaneously inhibit several key mechanisms used by the corona-virus to infect human cells, in particular the binding to cell surface receptors, the uptake (internalization) of the virus into the cells, and the multiplication (viral replication) inside these cells. In addition, micronutrients are the only molecules known to stimulate overall immune defense in the human body. Further details of these research studies can be found on the websites listed below.

This groundbreaking research is further validated by the first clinical studies showing that high-dose vitamin C is able not just to prevent coronavirus infections, but also to cut the death rate (mortality) of severely infected, hospitalized coronavirus patients in half – an effect not documented for any of the current vaccines or pharmaceutical drugs (Ann Intensive Care 2021 Jan  9;11(1):5. DOI: 10.1186/s13613-020-00792-3).

Effective immediately, the recommendation of an increased intake of specific micronutrients has to be considered an effective, safe, and affordable public health measure anywhere in the world. Our research team is willing to share our entire know-how free of charge with any government in the world that is willing to apply this knowledge – and expand it through further research.

I trust that you will take advantage of this lifesaving information for the benefit of the people and the economy of your country.


Dr. Matthias Rath, M.D.
