. CDC warns against use of anti-parasitic drug ivermectin for Covid-19, as calls to poison control centers increase « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CNN – The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent a health advisory Thursday warning doctors and the public about the “rapid increase” in prescriptions for the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin. The CDC also cautions about an increase in reports of severe illness caused by the drug to poison centers. Ivermectin is used to treat parasites such as worms and lice in humans and it is also used by veterinarians to de-worm large animals. For months, conservative media — including Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham — have talked about how it could be used to treat Covid-19. It’s a popular topic on Twitter.
