Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook have removed the viral video, where Dr. Stella Immanuel made strong statements on COVID-19 during a protest by some doctors. This press conference was done in front of the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC.
The video quickly went viral on Facebook, with more than 14 million views. However, it was taken down on the evening of June 27 for misinformation. However, Facebook-owned data-analytics firm Crowdtangle said it has already been shared for about 600,000 times before it was removed from the platform.
A Facebook spokesperson told CNN that the video was removed for sharing fake information related to coronavirus and claims connected “to myths debunked by the WHO.”
