Rogan gets Covid, then fights it off with a chemical cocktail

Joe Rogan has been hyper-critical of the Covid vaccine, but in a not-so-shocking turn of events, he’s now caught the virus.

The podcaster and internet personality announced his diagnosis via an Instagram video on Wednesday and told his followers he had used a mix of veterinary medicine, steroids, and various intravenous drips to treat it.

“I GOT COVID,” reads the caption.

“My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24,” Rogan wrote.

“Much love to you all.”

The 54-year-old says he got back from a show on Saturday feeling incredibly “weary” and “run down”.

Rogan added that he was quarantined from the rest of his family, but after a night of fevers and sweats, he knew what was going on. A Covid test the following morning came back positive.

“[I] threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds,” he continues. But rather than the vaccine, Rogan opted for a mix of drugs the FDA is urging people not to take, steroids, and various intravenous drips.

“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.”

Ivermectin is approved for both humans and animals, however, animal drugs that are too concentrated can be extremely toxic for humans.

Rogan has been slammed for his comments on the pandemic for some time.

“Are you healthy?” Rogan asked on his podcast in April, that rakes in roughly 11 million listeners per episode.

“Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself. You should — if you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this,” he said on the show.
