Dr Stella Under Fire For Speaking On Cure For Covid19




AUSTIN, Texas — The Houston doctor Dr Stella Immanuel who part of a viral video describing hydroxychloroquine as a "cure" for COVID-19 has been accused of claiming certain gynecological issues are caused by sexual encounters with demons in dreams, along with other dubious medical claims.

The Daily Beast has published an extensive collection of some of the views of Dr. Stella Immanuel, who was part of a video showing a group of doctors making misleading and false claims about the coronavirus pandemic that was removed from Facebook and Twitter--but only after it garnered tens of millions of views and was retweeted by President Donald Trump.

The video recorded in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, according to The Washington Post, claimed that face masks and lockdowns are not needed to stop COVID-19.




During the video, Immanuel claims that she and her staff have used hydroxychloroquine to effectively treat COVID-19 patients and that her staff had avoided the virus wearing simple medical masks as opposed to N95 masks, The Daily Beast reports.

“Hello, you don’t need a mask. There is a cure,” Immanuel said in the video.




The Daily Beast writes:

In her speech, Immanuel alleges that she has successfully treated hundreds of patients with hydroxychloroquine, a controversial treatment Trump has promoted and says he has taken himself. Studies have failed to find proof that the drug has any benefit in treating COVID-19, and the Food and Drug Administration in June revoked its emergency authorization to use it to treat the deadly virus, saying it hadn’t demonstrated any effect on patients’ mortality prospects.



Immanuel is a licensed pediatrician in the State of Texas, according to the Texas Medical Board.

Her practice address is listed as 6278 Highway 6 South in Houston, which Google Maps data shows is also the location of Fire Power Ministries Christian Resource Center, a ministry which is headed by Immanuel.


Following the video's removal from Facebook, Immanuel took to Twitter to threaten the platform with shutdown "in Jesus name" unless her page and videos are restored.




She also tweeted that she was "in town and available" to meet with President Trump.
