Fauci again dismisses fraudulent claims on hydroxyclhoroquine as COVID-19 cure after Trump shared now deleted video of quack doctors promoting it

Anthony Stephen Fauci, a world renowned American physician and immunologist who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and has advised six U.S. Presidents, on Tuesday morning dismissed for the umpteenth time the efficacy of hydroxyclhoroquine as a COVID-19 cure, after Trump shared a now deleted video of a Cameroonian doctor promoting it.

Speaking on ABC News, Dr. Fauci said all clinical trials have shown that hydroxyclhoroquine is not a cure for COVID-19. Dr. Fauci also called on Americans to all wear masks in public, social distance and practice hand hygiene to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Close to 150,000 Americans have been killed by the deadly respiratory disease and more than 4 million people have contracted the coronavirus in the United States.

The Cameroonian doctor Stella Immanuel speaking on the steps of Capitol Hill in Washington DC made dubious claims that the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is a cure for the virus.

Immanuel and a group of Trump frontline doctors came to Washington D.C. to promote the drug that has proven not effective in treating COVID-19 patients.

Dr. Immanuel claimed she had treated 350 patients with hydroxyclhoroquine in her clinic and also called all doubters scientific fraud.

After President Trump retweeted the posts that claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci misled the country on hydroxychloroquine and videos of the Nigerian doctor who claimed the drug is a ‘cure’ for the virus, the videos were taken down by Twitter citing misinformation regulations after Trump shared them with his 84million followers.
