Rolling Stone Forced to Admit False Story Claiming OK Hospitals Seeing Overdoses of Ivermectin Trying to Self-Treat COVID-19

The Famous Rolling Stone magazine was forced to issue an “update” after their story about the pet deworming medication ivermectin and Oklahoma hospitals turned out to be false. Plenty of liberals were thrilled to jump on the story before it was found out to be incorrect.

Rolling Stone published a story about how Oklahoma hospitals were overwhelmed by patients overdosing on the drug ivermectin, which is used by veterinarians. Fox News reports “Rolling Stone was forced to issue an update to its viral story about Oklahoma hospitals being overwhelmed by patients who overdosed on the drug ivermectin after the doctor it cited was contradicted by the hospitals he referenced.”

Rolling Stone published testimony from Dr. Jason McElyea who told a local Oklahoma news station, KFOR-TV news, that hospitals were so overrun with ivermectin overdoses that patients were forced to wait for treatment, and even gunshot victims were being neglected.

“The Er’s are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated” McElyea was quoted as having said. Rachel Maddow, New York DailyNews, Newsweek, The Guardian and Insider all shared the false stories.

However, the Northeastern Hospital System (NHS) that McElyea reportedly works for issued a statement. NHS said that while McElyea “is affiliated” with a medical staffing group, he has not worked at the location mentioned for 2 months, nor had he treated any ivermectin overdoses.

“Although Dr. Jason McElyea is not an employee of NHS Sequoyah, he is affiliated with a medical staffing group that provides coverage for our emergency room. With that said, Dr. McElyea has not worked at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months. NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking ivermectin. This includes no treating any patients for ivermectin overdose” the statement reads.

The statement also proclaims patients are not in fact being turned away, despite the Rolling Stones’ report. “All patients who have visited our emergency room have received medical attention as appropriate. Our hospital has not had to turn away any patients seeking emergency care…we appreciate the opportunity to clarify this issue.”

Liberals salaciously picked up on the story thinking people were attempting to self-medicate from covid, but overdosing instead. “Ivermectin is most notably used as a cost-effective treatment for malaria and head lice as well as heartworm in domesticated dogs and cats. The FDA warns against the use of ivermectin for treating COVID-19, noting that ‘taking large doses of this drug Is dangerous and can cause serious harm.”

“The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals. Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea” says the FDA website.

    There’s no such thing as journalism left in America media. No verification of singo from second sources. No reporter curiosity. Rolling Stone downhill following owner Dallas Clark’s death.

    Pretty shoddy journalism. No culpability? Absolutely zero integrity. Not sure why anyone reads that rag anyhow. It was good 20 years ago.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
