Dr. Stella Immanuel: Nigerian-born and trained physician, Dr. Stella Immanuel, has since been trending on social media after delivering a passionate COVID-19 speech at a news conference in Washington DC, United States claiming that the antimalarial drug, hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and antibacterial drug, Zithromax, were effective cures for the corona virus.
Immanuel, who aside being a physician at Rehoboth Medical Center, Houston, Texas, is also a Deliverance Minister with the God’s Battle Axe and Weapon of War Fire Power Ministries has in a viral video boldly dismissed experts’ warning that hydroxychloroquine could cause serious heart problems for coronavirus patients, citing her experience with the use of the drug.
In a video where she was surrounded by several others doctors obviously, Dr. Immanuel said “no one needs to die because there is a cure”.
“I went to medical school in West Africa, Nigeria, where I took care of malaria patients, treated them with hydroxychloroquine and stuff like that.
“So I’m used to these medications. I’m here because I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID-19. Patients that have diabetes, patients that have high blood pressure, patients that have asthma, old people … I think my oldest patients are 92 … 87-year-olds.
“And 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.
“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.
“We don’t need to die. There is a cure for COVID”, she said.
“All of you doctors that are waiting for data, if six months down the line you actually found out that this data shows that this medication works, how about your patients that have died?”, she added.
However, the video came under scrutiny as many questioned their credentials and the fact that none of the ‘doctors’ had their face masks on amongst other factors.
Relatedly, in a series of tweets on her official twitter handle @stella_immanuel, Dr. Immanue. Twitted sequentially as follows:
“I refuse to be chained by fake science. I have successfully treated over 250 COVID patients with HCQ, zpack and zinc. No deaths. All these double blinded studies sponsored by big Phama is fake science.
“Mr. President I’m in town and available. I will love to meet with you.
“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.
“I double dog dare y’all give me a urine sample.
“Had two patients having hiccups. So I went digging on hiccups as a symptom of Covid and Lo and behold a study with hiccups and Covid that is treated with HCQ. An NIH study. I did not know NIH knew HCQ works on Covid-19.
“The fear, the sickness, the deaths is so senseless and unnecessary. Covid19 has a cure. It’s time for politicians to let doctors be doctors and for doctors to stop being afraid. They can silence a few but not a multitude. Join us in the fight doctors! America needs you!”
At the time of this report, authourities have yet to respond to Dr. Immanuel’s claims.
