A doctor Houston made some false statements about the coronavirus in a recent video. But Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook were quick to remove the posts. She had previously made similar baseless claims regarding medical conditions, the U.S. government, and even children’s television shows.
Breitbart News published a video where Stella Immanuel featured.
It showed people in white lab coats conducting a press conference outside the Supreme Court in D.C. The group is named “America’s Frontline Doctors,” and Immanuel claims that masks are not needed to stop the COVID-19. She further claims that those studies that claim hydroxychloroquine is ineffective against the disease are based on “fake science”.
Donald Trump posted variants of this video on his Twitter handle this Monday. But the site later removed it. The video was also retweeted by the president’s son. Twitter decided to limit his account for the next 12 hours.
Immanuel is a licensed physician allowed in Texas. She was cleared by the Texas Medical Board. But she has a record of making such absurd claims. Once on YouTube, she claimed that gynecological problems like cysts, endometriosis, and infertility occur because people have intercourse with witches and demons in their dreams.
