A Louisiana Hospital Says That a Recent Ivermectin Court Order Will Lead to More Lawsuits

A judge’s order to give the deworming drug ivermectin to a critically ill COVID-19 patient invites more lawsuits demanding unapproved drugs for life-threatening illnesses, a Louisiana hospital says.

St. Tammany Health System responded last week to the order handed down in August by Judge John Keller of the 22nd Judicial District that includes St. Tammany Parish, The Times-Picayune / The New Orleans Advocate reported.
