My Corona parody inspired by pandemic

The pandemic was or is that is a chance for some people to channel their creative talent.

This video is the work of Zubin Damania, a US doctor, assistant professor, musician and comedian, who performs under the name ZDoggMD.

Damania has become something of an internet celebrity, known for his parodies, music videos and comedy sketches about medical issues, as well as systemic issues with healthcare.

My Carona, based on The Knack’s hit song My Sharona, is one of them.

When his first music video Immunize based on Billionaire by Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars was viewed 200,000 times, Damania received death threats from anti-vaccination activists, who also mounted an unsuccessful campaign to get him fired.

Damania spent time reading anti-vaccination groups online and the few medical experts who were attempting to push against the tide of disinformation, such as David Gorski.

He decided he could present information in a unique style, with emotion and energy.

Damania worked at Stanford University School of Medicine for 10 years where he specialising in acutely ill patients.

He founded Turntable Health, a direct primary care clinic in Downtown Las Vegas that was funded by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh.

“During a decade-long hospitalist career at Stanford, I experienced our dysfunctional health care system firsthand” he says.

“As a way to address my own “burnout” and find a voice, I started producing videos and live shows under the pseudonym “ZDoggMD” that have since gone epidemically viral.

“This launched a grassroots movement — over a billion views and a passionate tribe dedicated to improving healthcare for everyone. Join the ZPac and help us reclaim our calling!”
