Stella Immanuel, the Nigerian-trained US doctor who claimed she treated 350 COVID-19 patients, is insisting that chloroquine can cure the disease.
Immanuel had come under criticisms after a video where she made the claim went viral.
Twitter and Facebook had pulled down the video which they branded as misleading.
In an interview with Click2Houston, a news platform in the US, Immanuel said Herman Cain, US ex-presidential candidate, who died after contracting COVID-19, would have been alive if someone had given him hydroxychloroquine.
“No I’m upset. I’m upset. This is not, I’m not acting up, I’m not putting this up, people are dying. Like we just had news that Herman Cain died. He didn’t have to die. People saying he should’ve worn a mask. Yes, he should have if he did haven’t hydroxychloroquine,” she said.
