    They can use it for brain worms, but it takes really high dosages. Like, say, the kind you’d get if using shit made for horses…

    These folks believing in Ivermectin as a cure for COVID are getting bad. One of the hospitals here in Illinois is getting a backlash from other morons because a prominent anti-vaccine/anti-masker has been denied treatment with the de-worming drug.

    https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/loca...-drug/2607957/

    AMITA Health confirmed that staff at Resurrection Medical Center in Norwood Park have received "hundreds of phone calls and emails associated with one patient's care."

    That patient, according to her husband, is Veronica Wolski, whom Lawrence Wolski told NBC 5 is hospitalized with COVID-19.

    Wolski is known for documenting her demonstrations on a bridge over the Kennedy Expressway on YouTube. She is vocal about her beliefs against the coronavirus vaccine and wearing masks.

    "I have never once worn a mask. I have called the police on people that tried to make me wear masks," Wolski said in one of her videos.

    According to her husband and supporters on various social media platforms, Wolski has requested to be treated with the controversial drug, ivermectin.

    Ivermectin is a deworming drug mostly used in veterinary medicine, according to Chicago's top health official, Dr. Allison Arwady.

    "I am a little surprised I guess that there are people who want to take a veterinary medicine that is not FDA approved, but then don’t want to take the vaccine that has had really widespread human trials and is approved," said Dr. Arwady.

    Arwady warns the drug is leading to hospitalizations and not being used correctly.

    "They’re taking doses that are dosed for horses or cows and we have seen people have liver problems, nausea, all kinds of issues," she said. "I want to be really, really, really clear that in no case should anybody try to take a veterinary formula ever of any medication."

    The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals. Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea.

    The FDA says taking large doses of ivermectin is dangerous and clinical trials assessing the tablets for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in people are ongoing.

    The drug is at the center of a national debate and in a number of lawsuits, including in Springfield where a Sangamon County judge, last week, blocked a man from receiving ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

    Ivermectin has been promoted by Republican lawmakers, conservative talk show hosts and some doctors, amplified via social media to millions of Americans who remain resistant to getting vaccinated. It has also been widely used in other countries, including India and Brazil.

    Federal health officials have seen a surge in prescriptions this summer, accompanied by worrying increases in reported overdoses. The drug was even given to inmates at a jail in northwest Arkansas for COVID-19, despite federal warnings against that use.

    Last week, podcaster Joe Rogan, who has been dismissive of the COVID-19 vaccine, announced he had tested positive for the virus and was taking the medication.

    AMITA Health confirmed to NBC 5 it is not currently administering ivermectin and released the following statement in regards to Wolski's case.

    "At AMITA Health, our first priority is the health and safety of our patients. Our physicians and clinicians follow the full guidance of the FDA and the CDC in the treatment of COVID-19. And while AMITA Health Resurrection Medical Center has received hundreds of phone calls and emails associated with one patient’s care, we have simply and respectfully noted the concerns shared."

    Just have him sign a waiver and provide him with the ivermectin so he can give it to himself. The hospital will not be liable for any negative health impacts, nor should they be required to provide him with care following his decision to self medicate.

    Send them home then. Tell them if they want to die, they can waste their own fucking resources.

    DeSantis and Abbott test negative for competence and compassion

    Would you like to know how bad things would be if Donald Trump had been reelected or the Capitol coup on Jan. 6 had been successful? All you need to do to find out is to go to Florida or Texas.

    Both Sun Belt states are pandemic battlefields.

    Florida and Texas have GOP governors, Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott, and Republican state legislatures that are sending their children - and their constituents' kids - back to school with little protection against the deadly delta variant, which is especially plaguing the two states.

    Florida and Texas led the nation in a dubious category with the most COVID-19 deaths in the week leading up to Labor Day. There were far more fatalities in the two states than there were in big states with Democratic governors. There were more than twice as many daily deaths on average in Florida (344) and Texas (226) than there were in California (100) and more than seven times as many as New York (31).


    That's deaths period. Not deaths per capita.

    Hippocratic Oath. They can't do that.

    By the way, Merck makes ivermectin and they are on record as saying it doesn't help COVID. Also ivermectin's price has shot up and the vaccine is still free, how is this still an issue?

    That's what they said, but considering it's been over 300 daily for a while now I'll stand by my statement.

    Won't stop them from suing anyway costing the hospital a lot of money to defend.

    Strangely the patient is always allowed to transfer to another facility...but of course that would require they pay for it and we know that won't happen

    it was a way higher profit margin than the vaxx even before the huge demand.
    Yet another ironic thing they claimed the vaxx really was created to make drug companies tons of 'profits'
    Buh Byeeeeeeeeeeee !!

    Is there any precedent for suing someone for instigating threats against you?

    Maybe it would fall under solicitation to commit a crime of violence, but I'm no expert.

    Then maybe just start stating the daily backlog change also (+461 yesterday, on top of the 1700) because other states are doing the same thing.


    Florida today is adding +9 deaths for the "day" and a backlog of +1287. This makes their 7-day-average for newly-reported deaths 338, which is only a little higher than last week's 326. Dare we hope that Florida is seeing a slowdown in their rise, or is this just a blip due to Labor Day?

    Also, we saw a jump of +40 on the Thu-to-Thu averages three weeks ago (161 to 201) and two weeks ago (201 to 241), so maybe the +85 jump last week (241 to 326) was an early over-correction? The total jump over the last two weeks is 97, so they would average out at +48.5 each if you combined them.

    We'll be able to see if this is a legitimate leveling-off by next Thursday's backlog dump, I guess. Regardless, it's waaaaaaaaaaay too many people dying in Florida to a mostly-preventable disease.

    As someone already alluded too, I doubt they'd need dewormer to get rid of brain worms, the poor things would starve to death as these people obviously have no brains.

    What do you think is actually filling their head after the worms consumed what little gray matter they had? It's all just worms, feeding on themselves now. It sure explains the violent, stupid, and erratic behavior.

    That explains a lot...

    The erratic behavior, the mental gymnastics, flip flopping whenever it suits them, and their ability to seemingly infect other people with the same affliction.

    It all makes sense now.

    Something seriously needs to be done about all these idiots taking this dewormer crap for covid. Maybe a law needs to be made, making it optional for hospitals to treat idiots who take it. This would be funny if they weren't taking resources from people who are at hospitals for, y'know real reasons like gunshot wounds or whatnot.

    Medical bills will take care of plenty of them probably.

    If you actually want to make a difference you don't go after those taking this but against the people who are telling them to take it.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death
