Joe Rogan tested positive for Covid-19

Controversial “Vaccine Sceptic” US Podcaster Joe Rogan Has Covid

Comedian Joe Rogan, whose podcast racks up millions of listens but who has faced criticism for suggesting young people need not get vaccinated against Covid-19, said Wednesday he had tested positive for the virus.

In a post on Instagram, Rogan said he was tested after showing mild symptoms following a trip to Florida, which is currently battling surging cases of the highly infectious Delta variant.

He said he had taken a number of drugs to treat the virus, including antiparasitic medicine ivermectin, demand for which has surged in the United States despite scant evidence of its effectiveness against Covid.

“The FDA has received multiple reports of patients who have required medical support and been hospitalized after self-medicating with ivermectin intended for horses,” the FDA said, adding, “Animal drugs are often highly concentrated because they are used for large animals like horses and cows, which can weigh a lot more than we do—a ton or more. Such high doses can be highly toxic in humans.”

Rogan faced backlash in April for saying young, healthy people don’t need the COVID-19 vaccine. He later walked back these comments, saying, “I’m not a doctor, I’m a f—ing moron. I’m not a respected source of information, even for me. … But I at least try to be honest about what I’m saying.”
