Joe Rogan tests NEGATIVE for Covid days after revealing he'd caught virus and took controversial horse med ivermectin
JOE Rogan tested negative for Covid-19 just two days after announcing he contracted the disease and was using horse meds to battle his “fever and sweats” symptoms.
On Friday, the $100million Spotify podcast star assured fans he was in the Covid clear, posting "tested negative today!" by an Instagram photo of a digital contraption’s negative result.
"Thanks for all the kind wishes," he added.
The 53-year-old went public on Wednesday to let his millions of followers know he had the virus and “threw the kitchen sink” by loading up on a cocktail of drugs including ivermectin to reduce "fever and sweats."
Rogan took heat for his comments about the coronavirus vaccine earlier this year and so far hasn’t publicly disclosed whether he's been inoculated or not.
He only admitted to feeling "weary" and "run down" before getting tested for the virus.
Rogan captioned his video post: "I GOT COVID”
"My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24,” referring to the rescheduled comedy show.
The comedian was performing with his "Joe Rogan: The Sacred Clown Tour" in Florida.
“Much love to you all."
The outdoor video testimonial shows Rogan staring into the camera and expressing how he felt sick when he returned home from a trip on Saturday night.
"I got back from the road Saturday night, feeling very weary. I had a headache and I just felt… just run down," Rogan explained.
He then said that he had preemptively quarantine himself.
"Just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house, and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats," he added.
"I knew what was going on. So I got up in the morning, got tested… and turns out I got Covid."
The MMA announcer said that he treated the illness with “monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything.
“I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip and I did that three days in a row.
“Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great.”
Rogan expressed his regret: "My apologies to everyone… It is what it is.
"Crazy times we're living in."
He ended his message by offering a "wonderful, heartfelt Thank You to modern medicine" for helping him so "quickly and easily."
Ivermectin, which is not classified as an anti-viral drug is meant to treat or prevent certain parasitic roundworm infections in animals and especially horses.
Ivermectin is prescribed to animals in highly concentrated doses depending on their size.
Taking the drug in high doses can be extremely toxic to humans and they are not evaluated to help treat people, according to the FDA.
It’s also not meant to be a cure for Covid.
“The best protection we have against Covid-19 is the vaccine,” Dr. Vivek Murthy said during an appearance on CNN.
"If you get Covid-19, we actually do have treatments that work. Ivermectin is not one of them."
Rogan fielded criticism for making a variety of fact-challenged comments about the pandemic and expressed skepticism about vaccinations.
On his Aug. 20 podcast, Rogan was offended that New York City imposed a vaccine mandate demanding people prove they’ve been jabbed at indoor venues.
He vowed then that he wouldn’t “force” his fans to be vaccinated in order to gain entry to his upcoming Madison Square Garden show.
“I have a problem because I have a show there in Madison Square Garden in October, and I’ve already sold 13,000 tickets,” Rogan admitted, according to the publication.
“And now they say that everybody has to be vaccinated and I want everybody to know that you can get your money back.”
He said that he wouldn’t prevent a fan from attending his act.
“If someone has an ideological or physiological reason for not getting vaccinated, I don’t want to force them to get vaccinated to see a f***ing stupid comedy show.”
Over the summer Rogan drew a firestorm on his podcast accusing people pushing for Covid jab requirements "don't understand history."
Rogan slandered those advocating for vaccine more stringent requirements are "dumb."
"They don’t understand history, they don’t understand human beings, they don’t understand human nature," said Rogan, according to Forbes.
"They don’t understand the history of every single country that’s ever existed other than the United States.”
ATE COVID CROW
Rogan took to his podcast to better explain his gaff.
Rogan assured he was not "anti-vaxx."
"In fact, I said I believe they're safe and I encourage many people to take them,” he said.
"My parents were vaccinated. I just said I don't think if you're a young healthy person you need it."
He also verified that while he may sound like an authority in many spaces, he is "not a doctor."
"I'm a f**king moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator," he said.
Rogan said that his audience therefore needed to be aware that he’s "not a respected source of information even for me."
"But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying," he added.
