Texas-based doctor praised by President Trump for claiming hydroxychloroquine can cure COVID-19, doubles his controversial claim
On Thursday, Dr Stella Immanuel, 55, was interviewed by The Houston Chronicle outside her office in the city where she again approved the investigational drug.
“We haven’t lost a single patient yet,” Immanuel told the publication, adding that she had used hydroxychloroquine to treat more than 400 people with COVID-19 – including asthmatics, diabetics and the elderly.
She says there have been studies that show the drug’s effectiveness, but believes they are being deliberately phased out by the big drug companies, who have a vested interest in profiting from future treatments for the disease.
“Anytime we have two or three studies that show it works, there are always studies that come out and flip it. This is fake science. They will allow people to die so that they can sell vaccines and $ 5,000 worth of drugs. It’s devilish, ”she said.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel also made headlines for claiming that gynecological issues such as cysts and endometriosis are caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches.
She reiterated these beliefs in the Houston Chronicle.
“I am a demonic. Yes, demons sleep with people. Yes, if you pray for them, they are better, ”she told the newspaper.
Immanuel – was born in Cameroon and trained in Nigeria – also holds several other unorthodox medical opinions.
She claims people get injected with alien DNA and thinks the Magic 8-Ball toy is actually a plan to get kids used to witchcraft.
Immnauel also runs a church and infuses spirituality into his medical practice.
His Church Fire Power Ministries is located in a shopping mall next to his clinic in Houston.
The church’s “beliefs” section on their website – which has now been deleted – says it is against “unmarried couples living together, homosexuality, bestiality, polygamy, etc.,” reported Heavy.

However, it was Emmanuel’s opinions on hydroxychloroquine that catapulted her into the national spotlight.
On Monday, President Donald Trump and his son, Donald Jr., retweeted a video of the doctor appearing in Washington, DC to lobby Congress.
In the video – which has since been deleted by Facebook, YouTube and Twitter – she attacks “fake doctors” who doubt the drug’s effectiveness and claims it’s a “cure,” adding “you don’t need of mask ”.
“If a bogus science comes out and says we’ve done some studies and they find out it doesn’t work, I can categorically tell you that it’s bogus science,” she said.
“I want to know who carried out this study and who is behind it. Because I have no way to treat 350 patients and count and no one is dead.
She said she had treated patients with hydroxychloroquine with zinc and the antibiotic zithromax.
Donald Trump Jr was also impressed with his speech, noting on Twitter that it was a “must-watch”.
