(NEXSTAR) – Comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan said he tested negative for COVID-19 after only announcing he was infected with the virus.
“Tested negative today!” he wrote on Instagram along with a photo of what appeared to be his negative results. “Thank you for all the kind wishes!”
Rogan, also a UFC commentator, had made headlines earlier this week when he revealed that he was beginning to experience possible symptoms of COVID-19 after returning “from the road” several days before. He said he was eventually told he was infected with the virus, at which point he began taking “all kinds of medications” – including ivermectin, a pet cleanser that the FDA has found to be ineffective against COVID-19 and dangerous when used for that purpose in humans.
Rogan added that he had also been treated with monoclonal antibodies, antibiotics, prednisone and both an NAD intravenous drop and a “vitamin drop”.
He did not reveal whether he had previously been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Instagram also included a caption in its first post warning users of the dangers of “unapproved COVID-19 treatments.”
Rogan, meanwhile, had previously said on his podcast that he is not against the vaccine, but did not think “young, healthy” people needed them. He later called himself an “idiot” when discussing this statement, Variety reported, claiming that he “was not a respected source of information.”
Both the FDA and the CDC have meanwhile urged those eligible for vaccination to get the shots. In August, the FDA granted the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine full approval, meaning it now carries the agency’s strongest health and safety approval.
