Last Wednesday the popular podcast host and UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced to the world via Instagram that he had tested positive for Covid.
The 11 million subscriber podcast host explained that he had been on the road travelling when he started to get a headache and felt generally run-down before developing fevers and sweats through the night. In the morning he explained he took a test and it turned out he had Covid.
Rogan also outlined his treatment which enabled him to fully recover in three days explaining to his audience “I immediately began throwing meds at it” briefly mentioning use of monoclonal antibodies, zpack as well as ivermectin, a drug used as an antiparasitic and common for deworming horses.
“Here we are on Wednesday and I feel great. I only really had one bad day – Sunday sucked. But Monday was better, Tuesday was better than Monday and today I feel good. A wonderful thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and easily” Rogan announced to his 13 million Instagram followers.
The FDA has not recommended use of ivermectin in relation to Covid-19 citing lack of proven effectiveness, recently writing a tweet poking fun at those who have been taking the drug saying, “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it”.
In his most recent podcast episode since recovering from the virus which went on air Tuesday, Rogan slammed CNN for claiming he was taking “horse dewormer”, claiming they were “making shit up” and that he “literally got it from a doctor” going on to explain that the drug “won a nobel prize in 2015 for use in human beings”.
Rogan also previously came under fire from the left and mainstream media for saying that he believes young people should not get the Covid vaccine.
It is unclear whether there will be any reaction to Rogan’s comments from the likes of Dr. Fauci and other top health officials within the country, who should now be held in question about whether they are telling the full truth on the efficacy of ivermectin against Covid-19.
