A video about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in treating the CCP Virus and retweeted by President Trump quickly went viral. But in another censorship action it was removed by Twitter.
The video showed a dozen doctors apparently standing outside the Supreme Court building in Washington praising the use of hydroxychloroquine as a drug capable of dealing with the effects of the CCP Virus.
According to Fox News, a Twitter representative said the censorship action was taken to not allow a misrepresentation of the virus.
One of the doctors identified in the video is Dr. Stella Immanuel, who said she has treated more than 350 patients with coronaviruses, including some with pre-existing diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and that none of them died after receiving hydroxychloroquine. Immanuel even said she used and recommended it as a prophylactic.
Some studies have recently questioned whether the use of hydroxychloroquine can fight the CCP Virus and might even be harmful to one’s health. According to RT, Immanuel was outraged by these studies and said that they are a big pharmaceutical fraud. She also said that doctors who hesitate to prescribe the drug are comparable to “the good Nazis … who saw the Jews killed and … did not speak up.” Immanuel said she has been bombarded by “all kinds of threats,” but added that she will not give in to pressure.
“You can report me to the bots, you can kill me, you can do whatever, but I’m not going to let Americans die,” Immanuel said.
Shortly after her video went viral, and even after President Trump tweeted it, Immanuel reported that both her Facebook page and her Twitter videos had been removed.
She recently made another post saying she was the victim of a smear campaign and asked patients cured with hydroxychloroquine to support it. “WE NEED YOUR HELP. We are being attacked, ridiculed and discredited. We need our patients to SPEAK UP. If you have been cured by this drug, share your story online using this hashtag: #HCQWorks.”
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We are being attacked, ridiculed and discredited. We need our patients to SPEAK UP.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, large social networking platforms based in the United States have removed all content of the CCP Virus that they consider to contain misinformation about the disease.
Recently, the prestigious Dr. Harvey Risch, professor of epidemiology at Yale and director of the Laboratory of Molecular Cancer Epidemiology, said in a NewsWeek article that when hydroxychloroquine is given early to a patient who is sick with the CCP Virus, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has proven to be highly effective, especially when given in conjunction with some antibiotics such as azithromycin or doxycycline and zinc as a nutritional supplement.
When Risch was asked why hydroxychloroquine was not widely used, he replied that one of the main reasons was that the drug had become very politicized. For many, it is seen as a political marker, on both sides of the political spectrum. Which is a real mistake. Because medicine must be judged strictly according to science and politics should not intervene.
