A doctor who gained public attention after promoting the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19 in a 2020 video retweeted by former President Trump was sentenced Thursday to two months in prison for her involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Simone Gold, the founder of anti-COVID-19 restriction group America’s Frontline Doctors, pleaded guilty in March to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds when she stormed the Capitol last year.
