"I put them on hydroxychloroquine, I put them on zinc, I put them on Zithromax, and they are all well", said Immanuel, a Houston-based physician who said she was familiar with hydroxychloroquine from treating malaria patients in Nigeria. Julian Leibowitz, an expert in coronaviruses who is a professor of microbial pathogenesis and immunology at Texas A&M's College of Medicine, told AFP by email that "multiple studies have shown this to be wrong". She was featured on Fox News for claiming that stay-at-home orders are harmful since those orders had "no scientific basis" to show average Americans should worry about the coronavirus.

Immanuel however declared that "any study that says hydroxychloroquine doesn't work is fake science", and dismissed those calling for more extensive research on the subject as "fake doctors". The post was removed by Twitter on Monday.

"There is absolutely no evidence that hydroxychloroquine can help treat coronavirus at all", said Petr Horák, President of the European Association of Hospital Pharmacists.
