Chris Cuomo makes staggering U-turn after confessing he now takes 'regular dose'...


Chris Cuomo has made an embarrassing U-turn after confessing he now takes a 'regular dose' of Ivermectin for long Covid symptoms - despite ridiculing the drug during the pandemic.

The NewsNation broadcaster previously stated anyone using the antibacterial medication should be 'shamed'.

'You know you talk about cancel culture and who to shame – Ivermectin?' he told former CNN colleague Don Lemon back in 2021. 'A de-wormer? Really? … they need to be shamed. They need to be called out and shamed, brother.' 

However, on the PBD podcast the anchor admitted to using the drug to alleviate brain fog he has been suffering since contracting an infection.

'Ivermectin was a bogey man early on in Covid. That was wrong, we were given bad information about Ivermectin, the real question is why?' Cuomo, 53, said.

Ivermectin is a drug typically used to treat head lice and scabies or other parasitic infections.

The 'horse de-wormer' was touted as a miracle cure for Covid, however studies which initially appeared to suggest efficacy were later found to be flawed.

The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals.

The drug's profile was given a boost after podcast host Joe Rogan extolled its benefits on his show.
