The popular podcaster is the latest celebrity to come down with COVID-19. Joe announced on his Instagram page that he began to feel ill on Saturday evening and decided to get tested on Sunday.
By the time the results came back, Joe was already showing debilitating symptoms associated with the deadly pathogen. On a video posted to his social media account, Joe described feeling "very weary" and experiencing "fevers and sweats."
Rogan has not revealed whether he is fully vaccinated against COVID. But it is speculated that he is probably not, based on his latest dismissal of the vaccine on his show. "If you're a healthy person, and you're exercising all the time, and you're young, and you're eating well, like, I don't think you need to worry about this."
Although he claims not to be an antivaxer, Joe has repeatedly questioned the efficacy of the vaccine and has decided to treat his COVID-19 infection with alternative medications such as the anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin, which is not an FDA-approved therapy against COVID, but happens to be a very popular remedy among the anti-vaccine crowd.
Has Joe fallen too deep into the conspiracy rabbit hole? Hard to say. But we wish him a speedy recovery.
