Joe Rogan revealed he tested negative for coronavirus in a health update shared Friday to Instagram. “Tested negative today! Thanks for all the kind wishes!” Rogan captioned a photo of his negative test result.
In a short video posted to his Instagram on Wednesday, September 1st, the former Fear Factor host announced that he would be delaying an upcoming Nashville comedy show due to the diagnosis of covid. He had felt really under the weather for a day, but stated he is now feeling “great” after going through a barrage of medical treatments including monoclonal antibody therapy and the controversial use of ivermectin.
“So, we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it. All kinds of meds: monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin, Z-Pak, Prednisone, everything. And I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip. And I did that three days in a row. And so, here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great. I really only had one bad day. Sunday sucked. But Monday was better, Tuesday felt better than Monday, and today I feel pretty good.” “It is what it is, crazy times we’re living in. But, a wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and easily. And my love to all of you. Thank you, bye.” Joe stated (FOX).
The longtime UFC commentator and popular podcast host hasn’t necessarily been an opponent of vaccination, but has also been fairly consistent in making the case that he doesn’t believe vaccines are a necessary step to combating the spread of the pandemic, especially not among healthy people. “No,” Rogan said when asked whether he would take the COVID-19 vaccine, back in January. “I mean I would if I felt like I needed it. I just feel like if you maintain your health—and I think for some people it’s important.”
And while he has balanced that stance with his admission that he’s “not a respected source of information,” even for himself, he’s still railed against vaccine requirements, comparing them to living under a dictatorship. He’s even gone so far as to offer refunds to fans who may have planned to attend his upcoming comedy show in New York, before the state tightened restrictions (SBNation).
