Dr Stella Emmanuel: Donald Trump Retweets Coronavirus Video Flagged on Social Media

The United States President, Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr. had on Monday retweeted a viral video from Dr Stella Emmanuel that was flagged by Facebook for pushing “false information about cures and treatments for coronavirus.”

Other social media platforms like YouTube and Twitter also pulled the video.

The clip, which was originally posted by Breitbart news, featured four people who identified themselves as doctors speaking in front of the Supreme Court building.

One of them was Stella Emmanuel, a Nigerian US-based health practitioner who claims to be a physician in Houston, said hydroxychloroquine a malaria drug often touted by Donald Trump, was a cure for coronavirus.

A number of scientific studies have determined that the drug was not only ineffective against the novel coronavirus but that it could cause fatal heart arrhythmia. According to the Centers for Disease Control, CDC and Prevention, at this time, there is no drug or therapy presently approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent or treat coronavirus.

Emmanuel also claimed that people do not need to wear face masks and attacked “fake doctors” who “sound like a computer.” To avoid contracting coronavirus, the CDC advises wearing a face mask, limiting face-to-face contact with others and wearing gloves when cleaning and disinfecting or providing care for the sick.

Dr Stella Emmanuel has an unusual background for a self-proclaimed coronavirus expert. Information about her medical background is limited; however, she does serve as the head of Fire Power Ministries, which appears to be located in a Houston strip mall and promotes a baptism of fire program that offers “miracles, healings and deliverance.”

On Monday night, Emmanuel threatened Facebook with God’s wrath.

“If my page is not back up Facebook will be down in Jesus name,” she tweeted.
