The drug has not been approved for humans.

Floridians have been hospitalized after taking horse dewormer for COVID-19.

According to WFLA, authorities are warning Florida residents not to take Ivermectin, a livestock deworming drug, to treat COVID-19.

The drug is meant for use in horses only and should not be used on humans under any circumstances. They went on to say that dozens of Floridians have shown up at area hospitals suffering from Ivermectin poisoning.

Officials say it’s always best to seek the advice of your personal medical doctor and not ‘online quacks’. They also say the best way to treat an active case of COVID-19 is to seek out monoclonal antibody treatment centers in our area.

The treatment is free and approved by the state of Florida.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
