How Covid Misinformation Created a Run on Animal Medicine3

Veterinarians, ranchers and farmers say they are struggling with the effects of the surging demand for ivermectin, a deworming drug.

For more than a year, misinformation that ivermectin is effective at treating or preventing the coronavirus has run rampant across social media, podcasts and talk radio. Even as the Food and Drug Administration has said the drug is not approved to cure Covid and has warned people against taking it, media personalities who have cast doubt on coronavirus vaccines, such as the podcaster Joe Rogan, have promoted ivermectin for that very purpose.

My 2 cents opinion: “inaccuracies have led to some people overdosing on certain formulations of the drug” It is absurd that in the United States, humans are competing with animals for the same medicine.

Mi opinión: Creencia en que esta medicina para animales es proteccion ante el virus “han llevado a algunas personas a sufrir una sobredosis de determinadas formulaciones del fármaco”. Es un abusurdo que en los Estados Unidos, los humanos estan compitiendo con animales por medicina.
