Joe Rogan tests positive for Covid 19

Joe Rogan, who is one of the more controversial and definitely one of the most popular Podcasters, has stated he has Covid 19.

Rogan posted a video to IG saying he felt “very weary” on Saturday and got tested for Covid-19 the next day. He said ahead of the test he quarantined from his family and “throughout the night, I got fevers and sweats and I knew what was going on.”

Back in April, Rogan said on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, “If you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”

In Wednesday’s video, Rogan said he took several medications after his diagnosis, including the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin, the use of which has become popular among fringe and anti-vaccine communities, and which US health officials have strongly advised against.

Rogan said he has postponed his show in Nashville, which was scheduled for Friday.  “My apologies to everyone,” Rogan said. “Obviously it is nothing that I can control. It is what it is. Crazy times we’re living in.”
