NYT: 70% of Calls to MS Poison Control Related to Ivermectin Called Out: Real Figure was 2%, not 70%.

 The New York Times Corrects Claim About Ivermectin

After The New York Times published an article about the use of Ivermectin to combat COVID-19, claiming that 70% of recent calls to the Mississippi poison control center were related to Ivermectin, they were corrected by an investigative journalist who pointed out that the real figure was 2%, not 70%.

The journalist, Mary Beth Pfeiffer, tweeted, “I contacted @nytimes & they corrected 8/25 Ivermectin article. ‘This article misstated the percentage of recent calls to the Mississippi poison control center related to Ivermectin. It was 2 percent, not 70 percent,’ says appended note. Sentence removed. Poof. But damage done.

  1. Sloppy journalism or deliberate misdirection? Since the NYT is totally untrustworthy, we'll probably never know.

  2. Afraid not:

    1. Thanks and posted a different one yesterday.


    The comment section has some excellent resources and information.

  4. Brock, has your order been shipped as of yet?

    1. Not yet as I'm arguing about their CC Charge.

      Please answer my question:

      Can I pay by debit card and not be charged $59.68 for my Visa charge card? Thanks
      Also is there something I can do for you when I order?

    2. I ordered my meds from '' about 4-5
      days after you placed your order. You mean they are
      charging you for the use of your credit card?
      I used my debit card and heard nothing about an
      additional charge.
      Thanks, for the offer.

    3. Try to use it.

      They just replied, so I'll go ahead and if it does charge me, then I will cancel the order. Thanks.
