Facebook and Twitter have taken down the viral video of a US doctor claiming that an anti-Malaria drug is the cure for COVID-19.
Dr Stella Immanuel delivered the much-talked speech at the US Supreme Court buildings in Washington, in which she said that hydroxychloroquine can treat COVID-19.
Dr Immanuel said that US citizens have been denied a cure for COVID-19, claiming that she has treated over 350 COVID-19 patients herself and not had a single death.
“I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID-19. Patients who have diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and the results has been the same…I put them on hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and Zithromax and they are all well,” said Dr Immanuel.
In the video, Dr Immanuel goes on to say that she is a true testimony that COVID-19 has a cure.
The social media giants say that they removed the video as it violates their policies about misinformation.
Not new to controversy
Dr Stella Immanuel was born in 1965 in Cameroon graduated with a medical degree from the University of Calabar in Nigeria. She has a valid doctor’s licence and is based in Houston.
Immanuel, who is a pastor and founder of Fire Power Ministries in Houston, once alleged that alien DNA was being used by doctors to treat their patients, and that an anti-religious vaccine was being developed by scientists.
During one of her many sermons, she once claimed that sex with “spirits” is responsible for gynecological problems, miscarriages and impotence.
On Tuesday, Dr Immanuel said that Jesus will shut down Facebook if her videos are not restored to the social media platform.
