SOUTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA, Okla. (KFOR) – A rural Oklahoma doctor said patients who are taking the horse de-wormer medication, ivermectin, to fight COVID-19 are causing emergency room and ambulance back ups.
Dr. McElyea said patients are packing his eastern and southeastern Oklahoma hospitals after taking ivermectin doses meant for a full-sized horse, because they believed false claims the horse de-wormer could fight COVID-19.
An ER doctor in Oklahoma said rural hospitals in the state are clogged with people overdosing on ivermectin.
Dr. Jason McElyea said the bed shortage was so severe that gunshot victims are waiting to be treated.
An Oklahoma hospital corrected the record Saturday after the mainstream media pushed a false story claiming "gunshot victims" had been turned away after experiencing a surge of patients who purportedly overdosed on ivermectin.
The hospital that KFOR stated McElyea was associated with — Northeastern Health System - Sequoyah — released a statement Saturday revealing that McElyea is "not an employee" there, and explained the hospital has not experienced a single case of 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.
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. We want to reassure our community that our staff is working hard to provide quality healthcare to all patients. We appreciate the opportunity to clarify this issue and as always, we value our community's support.

This is interesting, my daughter told me of some overdoses, but nobody dead, just stomach upset, you know diarrhea, some vomiting and discomfort from the one for animals.
The thing is that people have to make sure that they are not 1 tone horse or cow, soo many do not try to measure their body weight to match doses.

Too much BS going on these days. Luckily we have ATS to clear the path towards the truth.
Thanks for posting.
Rolling Stone was forced to issue an update to their viral story about Oklahoma hospitals being overwhelmed by patients who overdosed on the drug ivermectin after the doctor they cited was contradicted by the hospitals he referenced.
The Rolling Stone later published an "update" to the top of the story which repeats NHS' statement.
Critics slammed the magazine for publishing what appears to be a false story.
Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted "The only reason Rolling Stone is calling this an ‘UPDATE’ as opposed to what it so plainly is -- a RETRACTION -- is because liberal outlets know that their readers don't care at all if they publish fake news as long as it's done with the right political motives and goals."

Hmm i wonder if this is why it seems to help with Covid.
"Ivermectin binding pushes these channels open, increasing the flow of chloride ions and hyper-polarizing the cell membranes."
Perhaps it prevents the virus from entering the cells.
Keep in mind the above quote was talking about
"Ivermectin and its related drugs act by interfering with nerve and muscle function of helminths and insects. The drug binds to glutamate-gated chloride channels that are common to invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. Ivermectin binding pushes these channels open, increasing the flow of chloride ions and hyper-polarizing the cell membranes. This hyperpolarization paralyzes the affected tissue, eventually killing the invertebrate. In mammals, ivermectin cannot cross the blood-brain barrier and so it does not make it to the brain."
