Joe Rogan tests positive for COVID: Spotify podcast star claims he recovered in three days

Joe Rogan, the popular podcaster and comedian who has made controversial comments criticizing vaccines and coronavirus lockdown measures, has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Rogan revealed he was able to recover in three days thanks to several treatments, including the much-discussed antiparasitic drug ivermectin, which is used to treat infections in horses and cows.

Local and federal agencies have discouraged the public from using ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 after poison control centers received calls about some who had ingested it and became ill, including two people hospitalized.

Earlier this week, the Arkansas Poison Center said it had received 24 calls this year from people who had taken ivermectin so far, while it had only received a total of six such calls between 2016 and 2020.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved its use for humans, but for parasitic infections and skin diseases — and not as a COVID treatment.

Ivermectin is not approved for the treatment of COVID-19, but it did gain attention on social media after Republican lawmakers in Arkansas pushed for its use for that purpose.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has warned Americans that it is dangerous to use ivermectin as a COVID treatment, although it is still flying off the shelves

However, large doses of this drug can cause serious harm to people if ingested.

Rogan has sparked the ire of liberals for his criticism of mask mandates and vaccine passports. In April, he encouraged those who were young and healthy not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, though he later denied being an “anti-vaxxer.”

He also revealed that he had scheduled an appointment to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, but had postponed it after the CDC interrupted the injection due to reports of blood clots.

Last month, the ex-Fear Factor host destroyed vaccine passports, saying it is taking the country “one step closer” to dictatorship by requiring Americans to show proof of vaccination to access restaurants, planes, bars and sporting events. .

Rogan offered a “wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for getting me out of this so quickly and easily.”

Rogan made the announcement to more than 13 million followers on Instagram on Wednesday.

“I came back from the road on Saturday night and felt very tired,” Rogan told his Instagram followers in a video posted on Wednesday.

“I had a headache, and I just felt exhausted.”

Rogan said he “secluded himself” from his family as a precaution and “slept in a different part of the house.”

“All night I had a fever and I was sweating… I knew what was going on,” said Rogan, who is also a commentator for UFC mixed martial arts fights.

“I got up in the morning, got tested, and it turned out I had COVID,” Rogan said.

Rogan said his treatment involved “throwing the sink” at the disease.

He said he was taking ‘all kinds of drugs’ [including] monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, z-pak (aka azithromycin), prednisone, anything…’

Aside from his wildly popular podcast, Rogan is also a stand-up comedian and a ringside color commentator for UFC mixed martial arts events.  Rogan can be seen on the left as he interviews Conor McGregor after his TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in their welterweight fight in Las Vegas on July 10

Rogan said he was also on NAD and vitamin drip three days in a row.

He said he felt “great” after three days of treatment.

“I’ve really only had one bad day,” he said. “Sunday sucked.”

He added: ‘But Monday was better. Tuesday felt better than Monday. And today I feel good.’

“I actually feel pretty damn good.”

Rogan said his diagnosis forced him to move a stand-up gig to Nashville next Friday.

That show will be moved to October 24 instead.

Rogan is the host of the wildly popular podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, which has gathered an audience of millions. It is the most popular podcast streamed on Spotify, although the service doesn’t release exact numbers on audience size.

Last year, Rogan signed an exclusive deal to license the podcast on Spotify.

Before that, the podcast, a series of hour-long interviews with newsmakers and public figures from the worlds of comedy, politics, sports and other fields, was available for viewing on YouTube.

Ivermectin can be used in humans, but in much smaller doses than in animals.  The drug is a popular dewormer for horses, although some are buying veterinary versions of the drug for use in treating COVID-19

In 2019, Rogan’s podcast generated some 200 million monthly downloads, making him one of the biggest online personalities in the world.

Rogan’s deal with Spotify has been met with outrage from some of the streaming giant’s employees who are particularly unhappy with the podcast’s willingness to host conspiracy theorists, including Infowars’ Alex Jones and others.

Liberals are not happy with Rogan’s frequent criticism of political correctness, cancellation culture and ‘wokeness’. Rogan has also been accused of making transphobic comments.

He has hosted authors and commentators critical of policies advocated by LGBTQ activists, including allowing transgender women to compete with cis-gender women in high school and in collegiate athletics.

Earlier this month, Rogan pulled the credibility of Dr. Anthony Fauci called into question by saying he was “100 percent wrong” and blamed his fluctuating leadership for mistrust of the COVID vaccine.

The podcast host and guest, artificial intelligence researcher Lex Fridman, said Fauci has lost public trust after failing to be transparent about so-called gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute.

Gain of Function Research (GOF) is a controversial practice of modifying a virus or pathogen to study the development of new diseases and their transmission. The research could ultimately make the virus more contagious or deadly in a lab.

According to an NIH definition, GOF involves studying and altering viruses in animals to make them transmissible to humans — and potentially more contagious and deadly.

Rogan said the media has ignored “all the things (Fauci’s) done to get people to mistrust him,” especially his handing over of the National Institutes of Health grant to EcoHealth Alliance.

The organization has been in the spotlight for its partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where some people theorize that the coronavirus originated and escaped.

Fridman also blamed Fauci and “seedy greedy holes” for public distrust of science, and Rogan attacked Fauci for his fluctuating guidance against COVID, while rejecting Fauci’s previous claims that scientists must respond to the evolving virus in real time.
