Maddow breaks down how Fox News misinformation made Mississippi’s hospital crisis even worse

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow called out Fox News for worsen the state’s hospital crisis with its misinformation

Ivermectin, a chemical used to deworm livestock has caused people in Mississippi to poison themselves and worsen the state’s hospital crisis

Maddow played several clips of Ivermectin being promoted on Fox News as an unproven drug for COVID-19

“In that state that, frankly, has enough to deal with, they are now facing a new challenge related to COVID,” said Maddow. “The Mississippi State Department of Health confirming today that, quote, ‘at least 70 percent of the recent calls to poison control in Mississippi have been related to ingestion of livestock or animal formulations of Ivermectin purchased at livestock supply centers.’ Why are people taking livestock formulations of Ivermectin in Mississippi? That’s a horse dewormer. Literally people won’t take the vaccine because they’re super suspicious of that, but they’re taking horse deworming medication that they’re buying at a feed store? For COVID? Why, on top of everything else Mississippi has to deal with right now, why are they dealing with this? I don’t know, but I have a guess.”
