According to [a justice of the peace], a county employee had been sent to the jail to get a COVID test, which turned out to be negative. Nonetheless, ... a doctor who has overseen treatment and testing of inmates throughout the pandemic, allegedly prescribed the employee with 50 tablets of ivermectin, with a recommended dosage of 10 tablets per day. The pharmacy where the prescription was sent..., confirmed to The Daily Beast that [the doctor] has been filling out prescriptions there for ivermectin for both inmates and other patients.
Washington County Sheriff ... on Tuesday confirmed that the medical provider for the Detention Center has been prescribing ivermectin to detainees to treat them for the covid-19 virus.
"Whatever a doctor prescribes, that's out of my bailiwick," [the sheriff] said. "But I will stake their record against any medical provider in any correctional facility in the United States. Doctors prescribe. They've been to medical school. I haven't."
