According to reports, Ivermectin is showing some very promising results as both prophylaxis (used as a means of disease prevention) and as an early treatment of COVID.
A recently released report consisting of results from 64 studies shows Ivermectin has an 86% success rate as prophylaxis and a 67% success rate in the early treatment of COVID. These result for Ivermectin, with regard to being used as an early treatment option, bears strong similarities to the results seen from hydroxychloroquine across over 290 studies.
The news of these encouraging results from the aforementioned studies comes at a time where Ivermectin came under intense scrutiny from the likes of the CDC, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and even the FDA – not to mention the mainstream media was constantly ridiculing the use of the drug over the past few months.
CNN was among the largest outlets to push narratives against the idea of treating COVID with Ivermectin, crafting reports labeling the drug as nothing more than mere horse dewormer.
The controversy over labeling Ivermectin as a simple horse dewormer wound up getting Joe Rogan involved in the mix, as he was prescribed Ivermectin by his doctor to help treat his COVID diagnosis earlier this year.
During a September podcast, Rogan playfully asked whether he should sue CNN over claiming he’d been taking horse dewormer.
“Bro, do I have to sue CNN? They’re making shit up. They keep saying I’m taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. It’s an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer. They must know that’s a lie.”
After he’d heard that CNN claimed he was taking horse dewormer, Rogan put CNN’s top medical analyst Sanjay Gupta on the spot while appearing on his podcast to ask why CNN lied about the drug he was prescribed.
“Do you think that’s a problem that your news network lies? Dude, they lied and said I was taking horse dewormer.”
Gupta conceded that CNN shouldn’t have called the Ivermectin that Rogan was taking “horse dewormer”.
“Yeah, yeah yeah, they shouldn’t have said it was horse dewormer. If you got a human pill, because there were people who were taking it, the veterinary medication, and you’re not obviously because you got it from a doctor, so it shouldn’t be called that.”
