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.
