DRAMATIC SPIKE! ZOMG! How many hundreds/thousands of calls have they gotten?
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – The Tennessee Poison Center has seen a dramatic increase in calls for people experiencing issues after taking ivermectin for COVID-19.
Dr. Rebecca Bruccoleri, medical director of the TPC says between May 23 and August 23, they received 13 calls related to the anti-parasitic drug.
Many of those calls were for people accidentally getting the drug on their skin, Dr. Bruccoleri said.
However, the week of August 23, the TPC saw a big spike in calls, with 12 people calling in just that week for ivermectin, nearly all related to COVID, and all experiencing varying severity of symptoms.

Dear God! This is an epidemic!.. wait…less than 2 calls a day? That is dramatic? I understand the “spike” (more like a raise) but there is nothing dramatic about that average of calls, specially if you do not know if all or any at all resulted in actual hospital cases. They probably get 3 times that number of people calling about Junior or little Suzy getting into mom and dad’s edibles.
This is why people ignores what could be good medical advice and considers all coming from that side just a load of BS. We need to shoot the propagandists and let the true scientists and healers take over.

Rolling Stone put out an article that said gunshot victims had to wait in line in Oklahoma due to all the Ivermectin overdoses…including a picture of people standing in line bundled up for the winter. Meanwhile it was 70 degrees there when the supposed picture was taken. 🙄😂
I don’t know why anyone bothers reading anything put out by MSM, they’ll lie to you every chance they get. Don’t give them any chances.
Liars! Only people in South Florida bundle up at 70 degrees.
(Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but we used to break out the hot cocoa at 69 degrees!)
Yes, RWC. And the hospital the guy claimed was overwhelmed told the local newsies he hadn’t worked for them in over two months, and they did not have any ER visits related to Ivermectin. SMH.
As for the Tennessee poison center, who wants to set the over-under on how many of those calls were just people asking questions about the stuff, after reading or hearing the fear porn being spread by Pravda, er, the MSM?
I like the sloppy “many were for getting it on the skin” — how many? Most? Why do I think it’s actually “all but two”?
Do a search for ivermectin, it comes in tablet, liquid and salve.
The drama of small-number skewed statistics strikes again!
What I wonder is, how many ivermectin-related calls do they take normally?
It’s Tennessee. The next state north is Kentucky. As in, “Kentucky Derby”. Horses are a big thing in the area, so the anti-parasite use of ivermectin is likely much more common than in other parts of the country. If so, calls to the local poison control line would be a regular constant.
So what kind of increase are we talking here? 44% (13 instead of 9, increase of 4)? 30% (13 instead of 10, increase of 3)?
In almost any case, a small numerical increase of an already-small number looks “dramatic” when viewed as a percent.
Also, 13 calls between May 23 and August 23. That’s 3 months!
13 calls in 3 months is about one per week! And that includes the “dramatic increase”!
For a state poison control center, that’s a drop in the bucket. There’s no story here.
