“An Italian doctor at the center of the country’s fight against coronavirus has been charged with murder after authorities found out that he is responsible for over 3,000 coronavirus-related deaths.

Dr. Sergio Kerr, who is a known member of the Italian opposition Democratic Party, is found to have ignored the approved medical procedures for treating coronavirus patients. A state prosecutor tells court that Dr. Sergio administered Benadryl, Ditropan and doxepin which are anticholinergic medications which worsen pneumonia.”

Clearly of the Herald Bulletin and shows a doctor who was arrested in Pendleton, Indiana in 2014. The original photo can be seen here . The name on the man’s shirt (“Dr. Eric Jones”) also does not match the name of the Italian doctor mentioned in this false claim.”
