Dr Stella Immanuel's viral speech

Dr Stella Immanuel, a Houston based pediatrician recently gave a viral speech spreading misinformation that Hydroxychloroquine is a covid cure. She made the speech standing amidts a number of doctors in white coat who call themselves America’s Frontline Doctors. The meeting was organized by Tea Party Patriots, a right-wing group.

Immanuel alleged that she successfully treated hundreds of patients with hydroxychloroquine. But in fact, studies have not found any proof that hydroxychloroquine benefits in any way in COVID-19 treatment. She also stated that hydroxychloroquine based treatment means that protective face masks aren’t necessary.

The speech appeared in Immanuel's twitter handle and the video went viral within a matter of hours. The video was later taken down by Facebook, Youtube and Twitter.
