Ivermectin is the controversial drug pushed into the spotlight by US podcaster Joe Rogan with unverified claims it fights COVID-19.
A renowned American anti-vaxxer who contracted Covid-19 has revealed he is using beetroot to help “treat” his infection.

Right-wing cartoonist Ben Garrison, who achieved notoriety for his pro-Donald Trump artwork, believes he contracted the virus two weeks ago at a restaurant in the US state of Montana, Gizmodo reported.

Ivermectin has featured in several of his cartoons including one showing a horse kicking US infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci
He told the publication that he felt “slightly better” after two weeks with the virus, but had lost his taste, smell and appetite, and dropped seven kilos.

Deaths linked to vaccines are extremely rare and people are far more likely to die from Covid-19 than a vaccine.

Mr Garrison built himself a reputation during the Trump administration for drawing the former leader with unrealistic, flattering features.

He was also banned from Twitter for expressing his support of the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6.

1. We'll see if he lives through this and if he still thinks that COVID

is milder than the flu.

3. From his 'toons, I'd argue he's never had a sense of taste . . .

That said, "Bye, Ben."

Horrible is not funny.
