A doctor in rural Oklahoma has claimed that people taking the horse de-wormer medication ivermectin to treat COVID-19 are filling up the area's emergency rooms.

"We are alarmed by reports that outpatient prescribing for and dispensing of ivermectin have increased 24-fold since before the pandemic and increased exponentially over the past few months," the statement from the organizations said. "As such, we are calling for an immediate end to the prescribing, dispensing, and use of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial."

The FDA has tried using a little levity in addressing the serious subject. In a message posted on Twitter in August, the agency wrote: "You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it."

"The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated."

The NRA ought to teach Oklahomans how to shoot better.

No. Biden should air drop invermectin in rural areas, with enough doses to kill all the locals.

Let freedum reign.

Tell them that a double dose will make them lose weight.

The civil war is on and the deplorables are offing themselves.

"You are not a horse. You are not a cow."


They're Oklahomans. I say the evidence is for it.

When are those who promote the use of ivermectin going to be held responsible for the deaths of those who take it?

I guess "white lightnin'" ain't the "biggest thrill" of all anymore.

About the same time those that are trying to overthrow democracy face real consequences for their actions.

I'll wait.

At least it'll get rid of their worms.

If we look at them as the parasites of society, then perhaps the use of a de-wormer is what we need?

Ha ha ha.

Oklahoma Hospitals Clogged with Ivermectin OverDose Cases

More like Oklahoma Hospitals Clogged with victims of right wing propaganda.

But let's not do anything about them.

"You are not a horse. You are not a cow."

Exactly. Horses and cows are much more intelligent.

This is what happens when you believe some yahoo on YouTube or FB or a podcast (Joe Rogan) more than actual scientists and doctors who have taken an oath to do no harm. You can't fix stupid, so feed it lots of horse dewormer and make it go away.

I wonder if Walmart in Okiehomie has bucket brigades following shoppers around to quickly clean up after they crap their drawers, which according to Twitter is happening on the regular with these morons!

Hard to feel sorry for anyone who would drink bleach or suck on horse wormer because they read it on the internet. Darwin !

I hope my local heart hospital isn't overwhelmed in a few weeks when I go in for a procedure. I must say that vaccinations are up in the Sooner or Later State. Many unvaccinated Okies I know seemed more resigned to get sick and maybe die than they are resigned to get vaccinated. It is, in part, the result of bad schools and part from the GOP death cult. Believe me that many In Okiehomie would ignore advice to exit a burning building ...

#18 - the VA has cancelled all elective surgery, even out patient stuff. So it's not because of lack of beds.

We would use Strongid When we had no Ivermectin for the Kids.
