CDC Recommends ‘Horse Dewormer’ Ivermectin for Refugees. So Where’s the Media Outrage?

Earlier this week, comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan told his followers that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19 on August 26. By the time he posted the video three days later, he was feeling much better. The media had a field day framing Rogan as anti-vaccine because of earlier comments he made that questioned the need for young, healthy people to get vaccinated

What sent them entirely over the edge was Rogan stating that he took ivermectin in addition to several other medications. The media and a bunch of Twitter blue checks decried his use of a “horse dewormer.”

These geniuses, including the execrable Dr. Leana Wen on CNN, might want to take note of the CDC’s “Overseas Refugee Healthcare Guidance.” This chart outlines presumptive care for parasite treatment:

The media is telling a partial truth to try and scare people out of using ivermectin during the early treatment of COVID-19. If you wonder what the corporate media’s vested interest is, think about how many pharmaceutical commercials you see while watching cable news. They are not disinterested observers.

The press release for the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 states:

Ivermectin is highly effective against a range of parasites, has limited side effects and is freely available across the globe. The importance of Ivermectin for improving the health and wellbeing of millions of individuals with River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis, primarily in the poorest regions of the world, is immeasurable. Treatment is so successful that these diseases are on the verge of eradication, which would be a major feat in the medical history of humankind.

The Noble committee referred to ivermectin’s impact on global health as “immeasurable.” Loa loa belongs to a class of parasites called helminths, with species found in other regions of the world. They include hookworms and roundworms, which also infect humans and animals. Ivermectin is effective against many of these parasites and is an integral part of global health initiatives to treat them. – READ MORE
