Huge 'horse' lies about treatment that won the Nobel Prize (2023)

  • KFOR News published a fake story in which a doctor claims emergency rooms in Oklahoma are being overwhelmed by people who have used horse ivermectin paste as a treatment for COVID-19 and overdosed
  • It turned out that the story was a pure fabrication, because there were no such cases. However, KFOR did not withdraw the story or publish a correction
  • The idea that ivermectin is an anthelmintic for horses that poses a fatal risk to humans is a misleading story designed to dissuade people from using a safe and effective drug against COVID-19
  • Although ivermectin is used as an anthelmintic in animals, it is also a human drug, approved by the FDA since the mid-1990s. It is on the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines for several parasitic diseases and, like many other medicines, ivermectin is used off-label for other diseases and conditions
  • In addition to being antiparasitic, ivermectin also has strong antiviral properties and has even been shown to protect against SARS-CoV-2 protein damage.

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Since COVID-19 first hit the scene, the exchange of ideas has effectively been banned. By sharing my views and opinions with various experts during the pandemic on the treatment of COVID and experimental shots of COVID, I became a prime target of the White House, the political establishment and the global cabal.

Propaganda and blanket censorship are deployed to take control of every part of your life, including your health, finances, and food supply. Mainstream media are key players and have played a key role in creating and fueling fear.

I'm reposting this article in its original form so you can see how the progression unfolded.

Originally published: September 13, 2021

In recent days, another big, fat lie has been allowed to circulate unchecked and unchecked in the headlines across the media. "Ivermectin: Why are American antivaxxers hailing horse dewormer as a cure for COVID?" asks The Independent.1 Similar headlines — all focused on "anti-worming for horses" — were published in many other media outlets.

KFOR news from Oklahoma appears to have been the first to report the fake story that caused this fake story to explode. On September 1, 2021, KFOR reported that emergency rooms were overwhelmed with patients who had overdosed on equine ivermectin. The claim was allegedly made by doctor dr. Jason McElyea. According to KFOR: 2

"Dr. McElyea said patients are filling his hospitals in eastern and southeastern Oklahoma after taking full-size equine doses of ivermectin because they believed false claims that the horse dewormer could fight COVID-19. 'Emergency services are so overstretched that gunshot victims have had difficulty reaching institutions where they can receive definitive care and treatment,' he said.

Fake news warning

Other outlets covered the story, including Rolling Stone magazine,3The Daily Mail,4the Independent,5Newsweek,6The Guardian,7Yahoo News8— which later published a story saying the hospital "disputes" the claim—and MSNBC's Rachael Madow. 9

There was just one problem. It was a fake story. A few days after the story made the rounds, Sequoyah Northeastern Health System issued a public notice and posted it on its homepage, dismissing McElye's claims as pure fiction:

Huge 'horse' lies about treatment that won the Nobel Prize (1)

(Video) I was wrong about this trick 😧 (true magic?)

However, instead of retracting the article, which would have been appropriate for a piece that turned out to be fabricated from beginning to end, Rolling Stone simply posted an "update" at the top of the article, noting Sequoyah's rebuttal. KFOR has not published any correction as of September 7, 2021. The Guardian published an update at the bottom of its article, but did not include the hospital's statement that NO patients were treated for ivermectin overdoses.

Hundreds of newspaper articles have also drawn attention to an alleged increase in ivermectin-related calls to poison control centers across the US. It turns out that they are also based on the weakest data. For example, in Kentucky, poison control reports receiving six calls about ivermectin paste overdoses, compared to an average of one per year.

The Mississippi Department of Health similarly noted that while poison control calls involving ivermectin paste saw a slight increase, all cases were mild and none required hospitalization for toxicity.10 It is clear that people do not die from equine overdoses. ivermectin, and they certainly do not die from properly dosed and prescribed oral ivermectin.

False narrative alert

The idea that ivermectin is an equine dewormer that poses a lethal risk to humans is pure horse manure being foisted on us in an attempt to dissuade people from using a safe and effective drug against COVID-19.

The intention is clear. What our so-called health agencies and the media are trying to do is confuse people into thinking that ivermectin is a "veterinary drug", which is simply not true. Ultimately, what they're trying to do is support Big Pharma's narrative that the only thing you have is a vaccine against COVID. As noted in a recent HuffPost article:11

"Health experts – those who work on people – agree that the best way to prevent contracting the virus is to get vaccinated, wear a face mask and avoid crowds."

In a Twitter post dated August 21, 2021,12 the Food and Drug Administration said, "You're not a horse. You're not a cow. Seriously, everyone. Stop," linking to an FDA article on why you shouldn't use ivermectin for prevention or treatment of COVID-19.

The MSNBC report in the video above is another perfect example of the misleading narrative surrounding ivermectin. The host is obviously mixing up the data, talking about ivermectin horse paste in one breath and growing prescriptions for ivermectin in another, as if doctors are now prescribing veterinary drugs only to appease desperate patients. He then goes on to refer to doctors' success with ivermectin as "anecdotal."

Comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan, who recently developed COVID-19 and was treated with ivermectin and a number of other drugs, has also been vilified for daring to share his success story. NPR, for example, reported:13

"Joe Rogan told his Instagram followers that he had been taking ivermectin, a veterinary deworming drug formulated for use in cows and horses, to help fight the coronavirus. The Food and Drug Administration has warned against taking the drug, saying doses of the drug for animals can cause nausea, vomiting and in some cases severe hepatitis."

This video contains uncensored dialogue

Did Rogan take the horse ivermectin paste? Not. Did he take animal doses? Not. As you can see in the video above, Rogan talked to "multiple doctors" who told him to take it and, in the end, he took it and she got better, incredibly fast. Yet NPR apparently conflates veterinary and human use, as if to insinuate that he took equine-level doses.

It is worth noting that the FDA does not warn against the low doses of oral ivermectin routinely prescribed for human use. They warn about doses for animals, which no authorized doctor would prescribe. In short, doctors do not prescribe ivermectin for horses, nor do they prescribe it in equine doses.

Ivermectin is an essential medicine for humans

While ivermectin is used as an anthelmintic in animals, it is also a human drug, approved by the FDA since the mid-1990s for the treatment of river blindness.14 It is also on the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines for several parasitic diseases.15

Ivermectin has several different properties. In addition to being antiparasitic, it also has strong antiviral properties and has even been shown to protect against damage to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Like many other drugs, ivermectin is also used off-label for other diseases and conditions. For example, systemic lupus and papulopustular rosacea,16 are sometimes treated with ivermectin. In 2018, a patent was filed for the treatment of certain autoimmune disorders with ivermectin.17

When used prophylactically for COVID-19 or as a treatment for acute SARS-CoV-2 infection, ivermectin is used unlabeled, but there is nothing unusual or suspicious about it. Many drugs are used "off label". So when the media warns that "ivermectin is not FDA-approved for the treatment of COVID-19," it essentially means nothing. This certainly does not mean that the drug is not FDA approved at all or that it is only approved for animals.

The fact is that ivermectin has several different properties. In addition to being antiparasitic, it also has strong antiviral properties and has even been shown to protect against damage to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Research shows that ivermectin reduces the ability of the spike protein to bind to the ACE2 receptor on human cell membranes.18 The drug can also help prevent blood clots by binding to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. This prevents the spike protein from binding to CD147 on red blood cells and causing aggregation.19

In terms of safety, more than 4 billion doses have been given to (human) patients since 1998, and only 28 cases of serious side effects have been reported in that time.20 However, the FDA now claims that ivermectin should not be used for COVID-19 because the drug can cause "serious harm," "is highly toxic," and can cause "seizures," "coma, and even death"21—warnings far more applicable to COVID vaccinations.

Ivermectin suitable for all stages of treatment

From the very beginning, the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has been trying to get the truth out about ivermectin. FLCCC's prophylaxis and early outpatient protocol for COVID-19 is known as I-MASK+22, while inpatient treatment is called I-MATH+.23 All include ivermectin. As FLCCC noted in a press release:24

"The data show Ivermectin's ability to prevent COVID-19, prevent those with early symptoms from progressing to the hyperinflammatory phase of the disease, and even help critically ill patients recover.

…numerous clinical studies—including peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials—have shown great benefits of ivermectin in prophylaxis, early treatment, and also in late-stage disease. Taken together...the dozens of clinical trials now emerging worldwide are significant enough to reliably assess clinical efficacy."

FLCCC President and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pierre Kory has testified about the benefits of ivermectin before numerous COVID-19 panels, including the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in December 2020 and the National Institutes of Health's COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel for health in January 2021.26

Two protocols—I-MASK+27 and I-MATH+28—are available for download on the FLCCC Alliance website in multiple languages. The clinical and scientific rationale of the I-MATH+ hospital protocol was also peer-reviewed and published in the Journal of Intensive Care Medicine29 in mid-December 2020.

Strong evidence for ivermectin

On April 24-25, 2021, Dr. Tess Lawrie, Director of Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd.,30 hosted the first international online conference on Ivermectin for COVID-19.31

Twelve medical experts32 from around the world — including Kory — shared their knowledge, reviewing the mechanism of action, prevention and treatment protocols, including the so-called long-timer syndrome, research results and real-world data. All lectures, which were recorded via Zoom, can be viewed at

A one-page evidence summary of ivermectin clinical trials is available on the FLCCC website,34 while a list of all ivermectin trials to date, with links to published studies, can be found at So what does the evidence show? In summary, studies have shown ivermectin:36

• Reduces viral load.

•Inhibits the replication of many viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and seasonal influenza viruses. An observational study37 from Bangladesh, which looked at ivermectin as pre-exposure prophylaxis for COVID-19 among healthcare workers, found that only four of 58 volunteers who took 12 mg of ivermectin once a month for four months developed mild symptoms of COVID-19, compared with 44 out of 60 healthcare workers refusing the drug.

•Inhibits inflammation through several pathways and protects against organ damage.

• Prevents transmission of SARS-CoV-2 when taken before or after exposure.

• Speeds recovery and reduces the risk of hospitalization and death in patients with COVID-19 — the average reduction in mortality, based on 18 trials, is 75%.38 A WHO-sponsored review39 suggests that ivermectin can reduce mortality from COVID-19 by as much as 83%.

Who actually follows science?

As stated in a review paper dated August 3, 2021 in the journal New Microbes New Infections, entitled "Ivermectin: Multifaceted Drug of Nobel-Prize Honored Distinction With Indicated Efficacy Against a New Global Scourge, COVID-19":40

"In 2015, the Nobel Committee in Physiology or Medicine, in its only prize for the treatment of infectious diseases since six decades, honored the discovery of ivermectin (IVM), a multidrug used against some of the world's most devastating tropical diseases.

Since March 2020, when IVM was first used against the new global scourge, COVID-19, more than 20 randomized clinical trials (RCTs) have followed such inpatient and outpatient treatments. Six of seven meta-analyses of IVM treatment RCTs reported in 2021 found a significant reduction in deaths from COVID-19, with an average 31% relative risk of mortality compared to controls.

During mass IVM treatments in Peru, excess deaths fell by an average of 74% over 30 days in the ten countries with the most extensive treatments. The reduction in the number of deaths correlated with the extent of IVM distribution in all 25 states with p < 0.002.

A sharp reduction in morbidity using IVM has also been observed in two animal models, SARS-CoV-2 and the related betacoronavirus. The stated biological mechanism of IVM, competitive binding with the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, is probably not epitope-specific, which may confer full efficacy against emerging viral mutant strains."

(Video) The Man Who Accidentally Killed The Most People In History

Despite the evidence, the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) are now joining forces to urge physicians to immediately stop prescribing ivermectin for COVID outside of clinical trials.41

Let's hope that doctors will evaluate the evidence for themselves and do what makes sense and is best for their patients, instead of pandering to Big Pharma. Indeed, while the US wants to eliminate all use of ivermectin, other countries are beginning to use it more. India, for example, added ivermectin for COVID-19 to its list of essential medicines.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Medical Association also added ivermectin to its home treatment protocol on August 13, 2021, and the Indonesian government not only approved the drug's use, but also created a website that shows real-time availability of the drug. Hospitals in Indonesia began using ivermectin on July 22, 2021. By the first week of August, the number of cases and deaths was dropping sharply.42

The 'Delta variant' is vaccine injuries, claim whistleblowers

Video link

On a recent Stew Peters program, a nurse addresses a few common beliefs. She points out that her hospital has never, even in the midst of the 2020 pandemic, been overcapacity due to COVID patients. Worryingly, he notes that most hospital staff are still unaware that the PCR test is completely unreliable, and care is based on that test.

Even if you don't have any symptoms of COVID, a positive test will land you in the COVID-19 ward, where standard protocol calls for Remdesivir and, if you have low oxygen, putting you on a ventilator. She says most patients get worse on Remdesivir, which has been shown to cause heart and kidney problems.

He points out that for a short time the drug was given in combination with ivermectin and that during that time the patient outcomes were much better. Ivermectin was then removed from the protocol.

As for the Delta variant, there are no commercial tests to identify the variants, although genetic sequencing in a research laboratory may distinguish them. The nurse insists she has never seen "Delta" listed on any patient records — a claim that raises the question of how officials can claim most COVID-19 patients are now infected with the Delta variant.

She also reported seeing a significant number of vaccine injuries, but was not aware of any cases in which the injury was reported to the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Whenever she brought her doubts to the doctor, she was rebuffed and the vaccine connection dismissed.

The most shocking takeaway from this interview is that the supposed increase in Delta cases are actually mislabeled vaccine injuries, according to this whistleblower.

"The delta variant is vaccine injury," says Peters. "It's common knowledge to staff who are aware of what's going on, [who] pay attention [and] don't deny it."
