Veronica Wolski, at the center of ivermectin firestorm, dies of COVID-19 infection

Veronica Wolski, the QAnon adherent whose recent hospitalization made her a cause celebre for the controversial medication ivermectin, died in the intensive care unit of AMITA Health Resurrection Medical Center early Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said. She was 64.

Wolski’s cause of death was pneumonia due to COVID-19 infection with hypothyroidism as a contributing factor, a spokeswoman for the Cook County medical examiner’s office said Monday morning. The manner of death was natural.

For more than a week, her supporters had besieged Resurrection with demands that Wolski be given ivermectin. The medication is typically used to treat diseases caused by parasitic worms, but has been hailed as a COVID-19 cure by some despite a lack of definitive scientific proof or government authorization.
Everyone likes to laugh at the QAnon and the crazy people...but they're dying and it isn't funny.

[@841775,Budwick] How about you state your source for that drivel? Copying and pasting from Breitfart isn't proof 😆
[@1050026,RedBaron] Its just not funny to me

Force you to get one injection you don't want;
Refuse to give you the one you want;

reminiscent of Obamacare!

[@349935,Virgo79] They didn't have much "common sense" to begin with, would you believe some podcaster or TV host over millions of Doctors around the world? I sure as hell won't take that chance...

[@605026,spjennifer] I still haven't seen anything saying go to the animal supply store and get it, I think people are assuming that themselves.
Ivermection paste is different, way stronger deal there

[@349935,Virgo79] I agree but with Breitfart, Foax News and guys like Joe Rogan telling all their listeners that it's a miracle cure! if they can't get it prescribed by an MD, you know they're going to get it anywhere, any way they can! And that's exactly what many of them have been doing... Dealer on the corner, "what you want, I gots some crack, meth, weed, Ivermectin"
my brother was diagnosed with covid and went the invermectin route

[@605026,spjennifer] stop it please

So they murdered her to keep her silent. With holding treatment is the same as murder. Special place in hell for those doctors.

[@6853,Confined] Who is "They"? Imagining sinister conspiracies everywhere is really not good for a person's mental health. There is [b]no evil Mr. Big pulling the strings.[/b] In real life shit just happens. Viruses happen, like the 1918 Spanish Influenza, and now Covid-19. Just put on the mask (not much to ask) and get the vaccine.

How the hell is ivermectin a right wing talking point? What a weird world.

Anyways the two major studies that support it as a covid treatment are bunk and were withdrawn. The Elgazzar study for example included a ton plagiarized material and was riddled with errors about the patient sample.

There is no reliable evidence this drug works for covid.

People are DESPERATE to find a miracle cure for this disease, and it leads people to do unethical stuff. The only evidence ivermectin can affect covid shows it needs to be in such massive doses it is of no help to us.

If you believe ivermectin is a miracle cure, SOMEONE IS LYING TO YOU FOR MONEY.

[@624254,CountScrofula] Not much money in Ivermectin,literally pennies a dose...also a man does a study puts it online,knowing theere are statistical errors a dull high schooler could find?
I think it was suggested they were hacked.
Numerous smaller studies but without Big Pharma the great cost of running a double blind study not likely
CountScrofula · 41-45, M
[@335376,bookerdana] It's not in the sale of the medicine, it's in the sale of the information about the medicine. Same with hydroxychloroquine which everyone seems to have magically forgotten.

This stuff gets repeated because people get agitated and worked up and keep returning to their sources.

Tucker Carlson doesn't care if ivermectin works, he cares that people watch his show.

No evidence for that, and furthermore it ignores proper studies that have demonstrated ivermectin is poor treatment for covid. The kindest thing you can say is 'the jury is out' not 'this is a miracle cure get it at all costs'.

[@624254,CountScrofula] I haven't forgotten hydroxychloroquine or the bleach debacle,and TC ,to be kind is a joke however the studies in Third World all come out about % positive will never see a double blind study for a generic pennies per dose drug

She died a martyr... like terrorists everywhere, "the base" believes this is the highest honour.

And now there's a whole lot of freaks looking to avenge her 'murder.'
