CNN medical analyst rips Joe Rogan’s 'nonsense' mix of 'folk remedies' for battling COVID

On Don Lemon Tonight Wednesday, CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner ripped into influential podcast host Joe Rogan, who released a video earlier in the day in which he revealed that he has COVID-19, and has tried multiple unproven and disproven treatments to fight it, including the horse de-wormer Ivermectin.

In the video, Rogan says, “Turns out I got COVID, so we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it. All kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, Prednisone, everything.”

“He’s, again, causing a great deal of public disservice when he describes a completely jumbled, sort of self-created medical regimen that he's on right now,” Reiner said in response, later adding, “He’s promoting, kind of a crazy jumble of, you know, sort of folk remedies and internet-prescribed drugs. It's, again, dangerous now. He should have more sense after encountering the disease. And again, I hope he does well and gets well quickly. He’s not helping matters when he promotes this sort of nonsense therapeutic mix.”
