From NPR – Ivermectin😳🙄

Poison control centers are seeing a dramatic surge in calls from people who are self-medicating with ivermectin, an anti-parasite drug for animals that some falsely claim treats COVID-19. 

According to the National Poison Data System (NPDS), which collects information from the nation’s 55 poison control centers, there was a 245% jumpin reported exposure cases from July to August — from 133 to 459. 

Meanwhile, emergency rooms across the country are treating more patients who have taken the drug, after being persuaded by false and misleading information spread on the internet, by talk show hosts and by political leaders. Most patients are overdosing on a version of the drug that is formulated to treat parasites in cows and horses.

  1. I must admit, I see something like this as Darwinian. I’m quite unmoved about people harming themselves out of ignorance.

    My main concern here is the cost to treat them, which will be reflected in everybody’s insurance premiums.
