Leading social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter have pulled down a viral video of some group of Houston Texas doctors led by Dr. Stella Immanuel who declared hydroxylchloroquine, zinc and Zithromax as cures for coronavirus.
In what appeared to be a media encounter in front of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, Dr. Stella Immanuel, who claim to have been trained in Nigeria, stated that she has personally treated over 350 patients of COVID-19 with hydroxylchloroquine, zinc and Zithromax.
According to her, all 350 plus patients have fully recovered even including those with underlying health conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
“I’m here because I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID-19. Patients that have diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma – old people…I think my oldest patient is 92 – i have 87-year-olds – the result has been the same. I put them on hydroxychloroquine, I put them on zinc, I put them on Zithromax, and they’re all well,” she said.
She added that “for the past few months, after taking care of over 350 patients, we’ve not lost one. Not a diabetic, not a somebody with high blood pressure, not somebody who asthma, not an old person. We’ve not lost one patient. And on top of that, I’ve put myself, my staff, and many doctors that I know on hydroxychloroquine for prevention because by the very mechanism of action, it works early and as a prophylaxis.”
This video, after it was staged went viral on all social media platforms. The President of United States of America, Donald Trump is said to have also shared the video on his Twitter page. Some international media giant also published the video. The video is said to have garnered over tens of millions of views on social media.
However, it has emerged that the video is misleading and contains a lot of false claims about the coronavirus pandemic. With this fall out, Facebook and Twitter have pulled down video although it has already gone viral.
Following the video’s removal from Facebook, Dr. Stella Immanuel took to Twitter to threaten the platform with shutdown “in Jesus name” unless her page and videos are restored.
“Hello Facebook put back my profile page and videos up or your computers with start crashing till you do. You are not bigger that God. I promise you. If my page is not back up face book will be down in Jesus name,” the post of the certified medical doctor read.
