Misinformed statements about the coronavirus and its treatment
Lamb and his Texas-based chain Daystar have promoted opposing views of coronavirus vaccines, calling them a “hidden crisis” and hinting that their efficacy and purpose hide a “dangerous truth,” as well as criticizing restrictions to stop the spread of the disease. In addition, the channel has presented a series of videos and podcasts, in which it spoke out against drugs against the flu and HPV, among other diseases.
The Lamb family has also promoted the use of unapproved COVID-19 treatments, such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, despite the fact that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health they have warned repeatedly against the application of these drugs to treat the disease.
Last week, during the ‘Ministry Now’ program, Jonathan came to describe his father’s illness as “spiritual attack of the enemy”.
