Rolling Stone magazine is leading the charge on a fake news campaign against the anti-parasite drug ivermectin amid reports more Americans are turning to it to treat COVID-19.

The publication ran a story entitled, “Gunshot Victims Left Waiting as Horse Dewormer Overdoses Overwhelm Oklahoma Hospitals, Doctor Says” on Friday following reports that Joe Rogan included the drug in his COVID treatment regimen.
In the article, a person called Dr. Jason Elyea told local media his Oklahoma hospital emergency rooms were over capacity due to a huge influx of patients who supposedly overdosed on ivermectin to treat COVID.
The problem is, Northeastern Health System‘s Sequoyah branch that’s the focus of Rolling Stone’s article released a statement on its website claiming Dr. Elyea does not work at the hospital, and has not treated any patients in at least two months.
Furthermore, the hospital itself claims it hasn’t treated a single patient for ivermectin overdose.
“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,” the NHS statement reads.
NHS Sequoya also refuted Elyea’s claim that its hospital was overwhelmed with patients who overdosed on ivermectin and had not turned any patients away as a result.
“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 received medical attention as appropriate. Our hospital has not had to turn away any patients seeking emergency care.”

Why would publications like Rolling Stone and Newsweek run these hoax stories about alternative COVID treatments like ivermectin?
Likely the same reason why the CDC counts anybody who dies within two weeks of receiving the mRNA injection as “unvaccinated”: to shape a narrative that coerces people into getting the experimental jab.
Why else would the CDC provide ivermectin to incoming Afghan migrants but not recommend it for American citizens?
