Texas-based Nigerian medical doctor, Dr Stella Emmanuel has revealed the cure to the Coronavirus pandemic which has led to the death of thousands of people all over the world.
The primary care physician while speaking at a news conference in Washington, noted that Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and Zithromax were effective cures for the virus.
Dr Emmanuel stated this at an event organised by a group of American doctors under the aegis of “America’s Frontline Doctors” in front of the US Supreme Court in Washington DC.
The doctors are holding a two-day “White Coat Summit” at Capitol Hill to address what they call a “massive disinformation campaign” surrounding the virus.
She dismissed the report making the rounds that hydroxychloroquine could cause serious heart problems for coronavirus patients, citing her experience with the use of the drug. She further stated that she has successfully treated no fewer than 350 patients with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.

Emmanuel also said hydroxychloroquine, long touted by President Donald Trump as the cure for the virus, could also prevent the disease.
Meanwhile, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have taken down the viral video retweeted by Donald Trump which claims that Dr Anthony Fauci misled the country on hydroxychloroquine.
The clip, which was originally posted by the right-wing news site Breitbart, featured four people who identified themselves as doctors speaking in front of the Supreme Court building. One was Stella Immanuel, who claims to be a physician in Houston, and said hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug often touted by Trump, was a cure for COVID-19.
The Breitbart video was viewed at least 14 million times by Monday afternoon.
Facebook appeared to be the first social media site to pull the clip from its site, removing it at 9.30pm on Monday.
It had become one of the top performing posts on Facebook, with nearly 600,000 shares before it was taken down for promoting misinformation, according to Crowdtangle, a data-analytics firm owned by Facebook.

A Facebook spokesperson told CNN: ‘We’ve removed this video for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19.’
The spokesperson added Facebook is ‘showing messages in News Feed to people who have reacted to, commented on or shared harmful COVID-19-related misinformation that we have removed, connecting them to myths debunked by the WHO.’
Trump’s retweets featuring the video were later removed by YouTube and then Twitter.
Twitter said early Tuesday morning, ‘Tweets with the video are in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy.’ The president’s Twitter timeline displayed the message: ‘This Tweet is no longer available.’
Emmanuel, the doctor featured in the video, later tweeted a threat to Facebook for removing the video. ‘Hello Facebook put back my profile page and videos up or your computers with start crashing till you do,’ she said.
‘You are not bigger that God. I promise you. If my page is not back up face book will be down in Jesus name.’
Dr Stella Emmanuel, 55 was born in Cameroon
Immanuel, who runs the Fire Power Ministries in a strip mall next door to her clinic in Houston, did her medical training in Nigeria, The Daily Beast reported.
On her Facebook page she describes herself as: ‘Physician, Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur, Deliverance Minister, God’s battle axe and weapon of war.’ The church’s ‘beliefs’ section on their website – which has now been taken down – says they are against ‘unmarried couples living together, homosexuality, bestiality, polygamy, etc.,’ Heavy reported.
One sentence in the profile reads: ‘Her attitude toward demonic forces has been described as cut-throat, a warrior to the core.’ Emmanuel is also a ‘wealth transfer coach’ and believes ‘you can be saved, anointed, fire brand and wealthy too.’
A mother of three daughters, Emmanuel reportedly studied medicine in Nigeria between 1984 and 1990. In November 1998, Emmanuel began working as a pediatrician in Alexandria, Louisiana. She has been a physician at the Rehoboth Medical Center in Katy, just west of Houston, Texas, since October 2019. She received a medical license in Texas eight months ago, in November, according to state records.
A Nigerian website, PM News, reported that Emmanuel did a residency in pediatrics at Bronx-Lebanon in New York. It was unclear when. She then interned under Dr. Babatunde Dosu, a Dallas-based Nigerian pediatrician.
It also stated that she holds medical licenses in Texas, Louisiana and Kentucky.
Immanuel founded the church in 2002 and has given sermons attacking progressive values and promoting conspiracy theories including ‘the gay agenda, secular humanism, Illuminati and the demonic New World Order.’
She has claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.
She alleges alien DNA is currently used in medical treatments, saying: ‘They’re using all kinds of DNA, even alien DNA, to treat people.’
In a 2015 sermon she declared that the Illuminati are promoting a plan hatched by ‘a witch’ to destroy the world using abortion, gay marriage, and children’s toys.
Emmanuel claims the Magic 8-Ball toy is in fact a scheme to get children used to witchcraft. ‘The 8-Ball was a psychic,’ she said.
