The World Health Organization (WHO) has reacted to a video of a Cameroonian medical doctor Kameni Pierre, claiming to have been healed of COVID-19 by a popular Nigeria Prophet TB Joshua through his church channel, Emmanuel TV.
The gynaecologist and obstetrician who claimed to have suffered Coronavirus said he received his healing after he called in for prayers during an interactive programme on Emmanuel TV from the isolation centre he was admitted.
