The Daily Beast reports:
You know it’s bad when the Food and Drug Administration has to take to Twitter on a Saturday to encourage people not to take the “horse paste” drug ivermectin to fight COVID-19. “You are not a horse. You are not a cow,” the agency tweeted, not bothering to dance around the facts. “Seriously, y’all. Stop it.” Ivermectin, a drug used in different forms for both animals and people, has become a fever dream COVID-19 treatment among conservatives.
You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it. https://t.co/TWb75xYEY4
