Podcasting giant Joe Rogan announces he has COVID

/ 06:44 AM September 02, 2021

Joe Rogan, the mega-popular podcaster who has questioned the necessity of the COVID vaccine on his show, revealed to his fans that he was sick from coronavirus and has to postpone a live show. Rogan took to Instagram on Sept. 1 to share a message titled “I GOT COVID. My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24. Much love to you all.”

Along with the announcement was a video, where the comedian said that he was “feeling very weary, I had a headache, and I just felt just run down” after a string of tour dates in Florida. He quarantined from his family, tested positive for COVID, and then “threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds.”

He then proceeded to list said medicine: “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, one of the drugs Rogan listed, is not recommended as a treatment of COVID. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has a page on their website titled “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19.”

In April, Rogan was criticized for comments he made on his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast when he said, “I’m not an anti-vax person. In fact, I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take ’em. I just said, I don’t think that if you’re a young, healthy person, that you need it.”

He later walked back the statement, saying, “I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron, and I’m a cage-fighting commentator who’s a dirty stand-up comedian… I’m not a respected source of information — even for me.”
