For those active on social media over the past few days, you’ve likely seen a video of “America’s Frontline Doctors” wearing white medical gear, speaking in front of Washington’s Supreme Court, confirming a good treatment for Corona Virus.
Reposting the video, Madonna included the caption: “The Truth will set us all Free! But some people don’t want to hear the truth. Especially the people in power who stand to make money from this long drawn out search for a vaccine Which has been proven and has been available for months. They would rather let fear control them and let the rich get richer and the poor and sick get sicker. This woman is my hero Thank you, Stella Immanuel.”
Featuring Houston-based Dr. Stella Immanuel, the video advocates hydroxychloroquine as a cure for the Corona Virus. Citing her own success with 300-plus patients of all ages and preexisting conditions and other large-sample studies on the efficacy of the well-known drug, Immanuel urged lawmakers and citizens to take the treatment seriously. Nevertheless, it appears that social media companies have done the opposite as Instagram decided to blur the video, citing “False Information – Reviewed by independent fact-checkers.” And the clip was subsequently deleted on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
In addition to Madonna and many others, the President himself shared the video as did his son, Donald Trump Jr. whose Twitter account was locked for 12 hours following his support of the possible treatment.
