Key backers of the QAnon conspiracy theory are carrying out a coordinated campaign against a Northwest Side hospital that has refused to prescribe an unapproved drug to treat one of the group's followers for COVID-19. QAnon supporters have in recent days targeted Amita Resurrection Medical Center with a small in-person protest and a flood of phone calls, the hospital confirmed Tuesday. The supporters are demanding that doctors give a hospitalized ally ivermectin, a medication approved for treating parasites in both humans and animals that has garnered huge interest in recent weeks, with the vaccine-averse increasingly touting it as a groundbreaking coronavirus treatment.
