BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland congressman who is a practicing anesthesiologist said on a radio show that he prescribed a medication typically used to treat parasites in livestock and humans as a treatment for COVID-19.
The Washington Post reports Republican Rep. Andy Harris made the comments concerning Ivermectin during a call-in radio program that he and his wife co-hosted last month on an AM radio station in the Baltimore area. However, Harris said on the program that he couldn’t find a pharmacist who would fill it.
The Food and Drug Administration has not approved Ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19 and has warned people to avoid the drug.
