The Daily Beast reports:
It’s not snake oil, literally. But as bogus COVID-19 miracle drugs go, horse paste comes pretty close. Thanks to a dubious study of ivermectin, a drug used in humans to treat parasites like scabies, cranks have seized on the drug as the new solution to coronavirus prevention and treatment. Devotees have besieged pharmacists with prescriptions from shady online prescribers, forcing pharmacies to crack down and treat the antiparasitic drugs like opioids.
As human-approved ivermectin prescriptions have been harder to come by, enthusiasts have taken to raiding rural tractor supply stores in search of ivermectin horse paste (packed with “apple flavor!”) and weighed the benefits of taking ivermectin “sheep drench” and a noromectin “injection for swine and cattle.” An Arizona-based pharmacist told The Daily Beast that their pharmacy had been inundated with ivermectin prescriptions from America’s Frontline Doctors.
Read the full article. There’s so much more to this, including horse paste Facebook groups. America’s Frontline Doctors, you will recall, include “demon semen” Dr. Stella Immanuel [photo], and Dr. Simone Gold, who is currently awaiting trial for her alleged role in the Capitol riot.
Just say no to ivermectin https://t.co/vDACdnBJ3H
