‘Like the channel first then take the medicine of corona’ – YouTube’s ghost climbed on this doctor
A doctor in Brazil is providing people with free medical advice and controversial medicines for corona. However, this doctor has a condition that if anyone wants his services, then before that people have to subscribe to his YouTube channel.
Doctor Albert Dixon is an ophthalmologist and some time back a video of him was going viral on Facebook in which he had explained in detail how he can be consulted for free. He also belongs to a political party.
He said in this video that how can you apply for free medical advice? All you have to do is subscribe our channel. You take a screenshot after that and then WhatsApp me. You will be able to access my services when you send it to me.
In a conversation with the BBC, many patients said that to get the services of Dr. Albert, they have to subscribe to his channel. However, when talking to Albert, he said that he advises people to follow him on YouTube and Instagram and there is no pressure on anyone.
He said that it is not mandatory to follow me on social media. There are many people who do not subscribe to my channel but it is not that I refuse to treat them. The Federal Council of Medicine Brazil has empowered me to treat Kovid-19.
Although the medicines that these doctors give regarding the corona virus are in a lot of controversy. YouTube has also removed 12 videos of this doctor under a new rule because they were spreading false information about Corona.
In these videos, Doctor Albert can be heard saying that he has a guaranteed cure for Kovid-19. Apart from this, he had told drugs like ivermectin and hydrochloroquine to be right for the treatment of corona.
Significantly, Brazil’s President Bolsonero has also described drugs like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin as effective for corona. However, medical experts have called it insufficient for the corona epidemic. So far 4 lakh 39 thousand people have died due to this virus in Brazil. (Photo Credits: Albert Dickson)
