A Nigerian man base in Texas, United States of America who did not mentioned his name, has dismissed the claim by a female Nigerian doctor base in America, Dr Stella Emmanuel that Hydroxychloroquine cures novel COVID-19 disease.
The man in a viral post revealed that the US president, Donald Trump would sponsor the woman to support the president’s claim on the drug.
The man said: “I dont want to burst any bubble. But this very event was politically motivated to support Trump claims. There is no science in it. She lives in Louisiana and Houston but came to Washington DC for this speech. She even said no need for mask!!
“This physician is a cameroonian who schooled at Unical Nigeria. She is also a pastor. I know her personally. She is a pediatrician and claims to be treating adults even 90yr olds.
“Its all American politics. Election is coming by Nov. this year. Trump needs to shore up his image after a dismal performance in the control of the pandemic. Shes being used. I work in the ER in Dallas, there’s is no evidence that hydroxychloroquine zithromax and zinc work.
“Many people have died while on these drugs. These are patients that I participated in their care. As it stands now, no known cure yet. Best thing is still prevention(mask, hand washing and Social distancing)” the man said.
Dr Stella Emmanuel, a Nigerian-born and trained physician has earlier proved that hydroxychloroquine is cure to dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.
The woman said in a video presently trending on social media after delivering an impassioned COVID-19 speech in the United States on Monday.
Speaking at a news conference in Washington, Emmanuel claimed that the antimalarial drug, hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and antibacterial drug, Zithromax, were effective cures for the virus.
The Nigerian woman stated this during a news conference held by a group of American doctors under the aegis of “America’s Frontline Doctors” in front of the United States Supreme Court in Washington DC.
The doctors are holding a two-day “White Coat Summit” at the Capitol Hill to address what they call a “massive disinformation campaign” surrounding the virus.
At the conference, Emmanuel dismissed experts’ warning that hydroxychloroquine could cause serious heart problems for coronavirus patients, citing her experience with the use of the drug.
The Nigerian, who was joined by other frontline doctors, said she had successfully treated no fewer than 350 patients with hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.
Emmanuel added that hydroxychloroquine, long touted by President Donald Trump as cure for the virus, could also prevent the disease.
