Governor has asked that the ruling on the ban of Hydroxychloroquine be overturned in a Tweet this morning –
(7-29-20) The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is banning the use of hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of COVID-19 beginning Thursday (July 30).
ODH Press Secretary Melanie Amato said the drug is not an effective treatment for COVID-19. She stated that Board of Pharmacy rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code will go into effect Thursday, banning its distribution.
This announcement comes after Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Houston physician stated in a video yesterday, that went viral-
“I came here to Washington, D.C., to tell America nobody needs to get sick. This virus has a cure. It is called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax. I know you people want to talk about a mask. Hello? You don’t need mask. There is a cure. I know they don’t want to open schools. No, you don’t need people to be locked down. There is prevention and there is a cure.”
The video has since been removed by many social media sites.
This You Tube video was added yesterday afternoon of Dr Stella Immanuel, the Nigerian who said there is a cùre for C0VID 19. She is not only a medical Doctor, also a pastor.
According to an AP article (Video falsely touts hydroxychloroquine as COVID-19 cure) about the first video that has been removed from numerous social media sites.
CLAIM: A video makes numerous claims about preventing the coronavirus, stating that hydroxychloroquine can prevent and cure COVID-19, and wearing masks and keeping people locked down have no value.
AP’S ASSESSMENT: The video contains a wide range of false information, much of which has been knocked down multiple times by doctors and researchers who study the coronavirus.
