It’s probably not a shock to learn that Roosh V — former-PUA-turned-Orthodox-Christian — is a COVID “skeptic” who railed against the COVID vaccines and refused to wear a mask. He once dismissed fears of COVID as “a girl thing” and “gay.”
Meanwhile, his Roosh V Forum is abuzz with conspiracy theories outright misinformation about COVID, with Roosh and his remaining followers warning about the supposed dangers of the vaccine, which one follower denounced as a virtual weapon of mass destruction designed to cause literal genocide. Other followers have been sharing tips on resisting against coronavirus laws and where in the world they might go to avoid the allegedly tyrannical lockdowns,
Well, in one of those ironies we see so often today, Roosh has now caught “a flu-like illness” that strongly resembles COVID — by which I mean that there’s a near 100% chance he’s got COVID. And frankly it sounds awful.
“Friends, I’m in bad shape,” he wrote in a post on his forum yesterday.
On Thursday I came down suddenly with a flu-like illness of muscle pain and weakness. For several nights I could hardly sleep and the symptoms progressed to include diarrhea, sore throat, fever, headache, runny nose, coughing (mostly dry), loss of appetite, inability to concentrate, and some brain fog.
Yikes. That sounds a lot like a case of COVID.
I was traveling when it hit so was not able to start a suitable treatment plan (or even eat properly). The illness never got better. I felt like my whole body was being poisoned, and that I could not fight the poison on its own. I had never been sick like this in my life.
Five days after infection, I finally made it home, but a new symptom developed. When I would try to take a deep breath, my lungs would feel a sharp stinging pain and then I would be forced to cough violently. This required me to breath shallow and minimize my movements. When I came home, I took my temperature and it peaked at 104.7 F. My pulse oxygen was 93%.
Yikes again. Dude, I think you’re going to have to admit you have a serious case of COVID.
Naturally he’s turned to the horse paste for relief.
I happened to buy some Ivermectin over a month ago, so I started a regimen. Within 3 hours of taking it, I noticed a slight improvement in my breathing, and my pulse oxygen is now 94%-95%. I’m also taking Vitamin C, Zinc, and Vitamin D. I’m still in rough shape, I can hardly walk a couple of steps, but I hope to turn the corner in the next day or two.
Yeah, I’m not sure that’s going to happen, bro.
Please pray for me!
Alas, that form of treatment is no more effective than horse paste is for humans.
I wonder if this experience will cause Roosh to reflect on his wrong and terrible beliefs and actions. Probably not.
