America Frontline Doctors
Dr Stella Immanuel and other doctors which appeared in the video call themselves America Frontline Doctors. It was founded by Simone Gold and they are a group of medical professionals aimed at scrutinizing the findings which other scientists have published about the pandemic. They organised a conference on the 27th of July, where they aired their views on the coronavirus and the hydroxychloroquine cure. It is important to note that the conference video was shared by Donald Trump Jr and retweeted by President Trump. Therefore, it garnered support from several Trump loyalists, like the Tea-party Patriots.
Ralph Norman, a Republican member of the House of Representatives, was present with the doctors standing by their opinion of the success of hydroxychloroquine as treatment of their Covid-19 patients. At the conference, one AGF medical doctor accused big pharmaceutical companies of being afraid lose money because as they are aware of the potency of hydroxychloroquine.
The views have stirred serious debate on top social media recently about hydroxychloroquine which the World Health Organisation declared unfit to fight Covid-19. In light f the controversy, the videos have been removed from Twitter, Youtube and other social media as they claimed it violates misinformation policy.
