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.

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.
