Just in case you don’t know, the popular Joe Rogan was recently diagnosed with Covid 19 and he received treatment that had him back on track in no time, according to what he told the media.
Joe Rogan addressed Covid treatment he received
Now, Fox News reveals that he confronted CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta over his network’s claims that the podcast host took “horse dewormer” as a treatment for the disease triggered by the novel coronavirus.
During the other day’s installment of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan grilled the doctor on the reasons for which someone like him who already had covid and has antibodies should get vaccinated.
“By the way, I’m glad you’re better,” Gupta said.
“Thank you,” Rogan responded.
“You’re probably the only one at CNN who’s glad… The rest of them are all lying about me taking horse medication.”
“That bothered you,” Gupta said, and then grinned according to the article posted by Fox News.
“It should bother you too,” Rogan shot back. “They’re lying at your network about people taking human drugs versus drugs for veterinary.”

“Calling it a ‘horse dewormer’ is not the most flattering thing, I get that,” Gupta said.
“It’s a lie,” Rogan said.
“It’s a lie on a news network… and it’s a lie that they’re conscious of. It’s not a mistake. They’re unfavorably framing it as veterinary medicine.”
Who chief makes seemingly shocking claims about covid booster vaccines
Besides viable covid treatments, another issue that has been making headlines involves vaccines.
CNN notes that distributing Covid-19 vaccine booster shots in some countries while inoculations across Africa lag is “immoral.” This is according to the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO). Find out more details in our previous article.
