Hospital Statement Calls Out Ivermectin ‘Fake News’ That Was Spread By Rachel Maddow

Rachel Maddow is making headlines again

The MSNBC host got used to this. She really likes spreading fake news and bad theories. I guess conspiracy theories are her favorite. We heard her talk about the Capitol Hill nightmare. Oh, that’s how MSNBC does things.

On Saturday, Maddow took to her Twitter account to discuss Ivermectin and its role in the treatment of COVID patients. The local story became a national topic.

“Patients overdosing on ivermectin backing up rural Oklahoma hospitals, ambulances,” Maddow quoted from a local news article. “‘The scariest one I’ve heard of and seen is people coming in with vision loss.’ he said.”

Where did she get this?

“A rural Oklahoma doctor said patients who are taking the horse de-wormer medication, ivermectin, to fight COVID-19 are causing emergency room and ambulance back ups,” News 4 reported on Friday.

“There’s a reason you have to have a doctor to get a prescription for this stuff, because it can be dangerous,” said Dr. Jason McElyea.

“Dr. McElyea said patients are packing his eastern and southeastern Oklahoma hospitals after taking ivermectin doses meant for a full-sized horse, because they believed false claims the horse de-wormer could fight COVID-19,” News 4 reported.

“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,” he claimed.

The Northeastern Health System of Sequoyah says they are no longer related to the hospital network.

“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,” NHS Sequoyah wrote.

“With that said, Dr. McElyea has not worked at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months,” the statement said. “NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking Ivermectin. This includes not treating any patients for Ivermectin overdose.”

“All patients who have visited our emergency room have recieved medical attention as appropriate,” the statement continued. “Our hospital has not had to turn away any patients seeking emergency care.”

“We want to reassure our community that our staff is working hard to provide quality healthcare to all patients,” the statement added.

The hospital discredited Maddow’s report.

Ivermectin is more than a “horse dewormer.” It’s a Nobel-prize winning medication used in human beings. Doctors use it as an anti-parasitic.

The FDA says people should never use it without a presctiption.

“People are purchasing various highly concentrated animal ivermectin drug formulations such as ‘pour-on,’ injectable, paste and ‘drench’ that are intended for horses, cattle and sheep, and taking these drugs has made some people very sick,” the FDA wrote in a letter to veterinarians. “Even if animal drugs have the same active ingredient as an approved human drug, animal drugs have not been evaluated for safety or effectiveness in humans.”

“Treating human medical conditions with veterinary drugs can be very dangerous,” the agency continued. “The drug may not work at all, or it could worsen the illness and/or lead to serious, potentially life-threatening health complications.”

“Ivermectin is not authorized or approved by FDA for prevention or treatment of COVID-19,” the CDC wrote, noting insufficient data from the National Institutes of Health’s COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guideline for refugees from 2019 shows that the medication was added to the treatment of these people. This was their way of keeping parasites away from the US.

“These guidelines are recommendations for the International Organization for Migration (IOM) physicians and other panel physicians who administer overseas predeparture presumptive treatment for intestinal parasites,” the document reads.

“All African refugees who did not originate from or reside in countries where Loa loa infection is endemic (Box 1), with exceptions noted in this document, should receive presumptive therapy with… Ivermectin, two doses 200 mcg/Kg orally once a day for 2 days,” the CDC lists as one of the medications.

The FDA has yet to authorize the medication for treating coronavirus. Experts have already studied the effectiveness of Ivermectin in the treatment of the virus.

“Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease,” a study in the American Journal of Therapeutics published in June 2021 concluded. “The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.”

How will Maddow react to this? We bet she will come up with another excuse.
