Popular podcast host Joe Rogan dispelled rumors that he took horse dewormer to treat COVID-19. During his podcast, which was shared on Tuesday, Rogan announced he was prescribed ivermectin as part of a cocktail to kick the virus.
Rogan claimed within a day after following his doctor-ordered drug regimen, he felt substantially better. However, he lamented CNN and other news outlets tried to dismiss his treatment.
“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 ,” he stated. “…What they didn’t highlight is that I got better.”
Rogan went on to stress that he received the ivermectin from a doctor and CNN had accused him of spreading disinformation.
