Oregon Poison Center Fields More Calls On COVID 'Remedies'

Ivermectin is just the latest "therapeutic" for COVID-19 to be A) not effective and B) potentially poisonous.

The Oregon Poison Center at OHSU in Portland fielded three calls about Ivermectin in all of 2020, but three TIMES that many just in the first three weeks of August. The non-official COVID remedies have caused spikes in the past.
