“Philadelphia’s Eagles corner and one-time Super Bowl champion Jalen Mills got a little overwhelmed after one of his tweets supported doctors in Washington to hear the therapeutic benefits of using hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19 patients.
The video was posted several times on Twitter and in one case was shared by President Trump. It was not clear when the video was filmed. Twitter later removed a video shared by Trump for violating its disinformation policy.

Mills quoted a tweeter from one user as saying, “The RT world should hear it.”;
Twitter users criticized Mills for sharing the video.
One of the doctors, who was reportedly identified as Dr. Stella Immanuel, said she treated more than 350 coronavirus patients, some with diabetes and high blood pressure, and none died after being given hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Zithromax. She claimed to even take the drug prophylactically.
TWITTER DELETES SHORT IMAGE ON HYDROXYCHLOROIN CORONAVIRUS
The New York Times noted recent research that questioned the effectiveness of the treatment, calling the video “the latest example of misinformation that has spread” about the virus.
Breitbart reported that a group called “American Front Line Doctors” held a press conference “organized and sponsored by tea party patriots.” The event was attended by doctors and RS RC representative Ralph Norman. The report says.
The video makes impressive claims about a treatment that basically calls it all medicine. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say there is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19.
The Breitbart report says the video was later removed by social media platforms. Twitter did not respond immediately to Fox News’ inquiry, and a Facebook spokesman told Breitbart that the video had been removed because it shared false information “about the cure and treatment of COVID-19.”
Discussions about the antimalarial drug have been raging for weeks and Trump has criticized critics for selling unproven treatment. Trump’s supporters have accused social media companies of silencing what is considered to be their own views on the disease.

In April, YouTube was criticized for removing a viral video from two California doctors questioning the level of the coronavirus threat.
June The New England Journal of Medicine reported that a study had shown that hydroxychloroquine was no better than placebo tablets in preventing coronavirus disease. Nevertheless, the drug did not cause serious harm – about 40 percent of people who took the drug had side effects, usually a mild stomach upset.
“We were disappointed. We would like it to succeed, ”said the study leader, a specialist in infectious diseases at the University of Minnesota, Dr. David Boulware. “But our goal was to answer the question and conduct a high-quality study,” he said, as the evidence for the drug has not been convincing so far. The Lancet has published a study that found that patients with coronavirus were more likely to develop severe heart arrhythmias if they were treated with the medicine, but the study was later canceled.
Yale Professor of Epidemiology, School of Public Health dr. Harvey Risch told Fox News last week that he believes hydroxychloroquine could save between 75,000 and 100,000 lives if the drug is widely used to treat coronavirus.

“There are a lot of doctors I have received hostile remarks about, saying that all the evidence is bad, and in fact this is not true,” Risch told Ingraham Angle, adding that he thought the drug could act as a “prophylaxis” for direct workers. as other countries such as India have done.
Risch lamented that there was a “propaganda war” against drug use for political purposes rather than on the basis of “medical facts.”
