Right-wing commentator Glenn Beck revealed that he is suffering from a “disturbing” second case of Covid-19 and is using unapproved remedies to treat it.

The former Fox News host, now a network executive himself after founding conservative network and media company TheBlaze, confirmed the news on Mark Levin‘s radio show. He said that he has been dealing with the infection for a week, and “It’s starting to go into my lungs today and a little disturbing. I’m on all the medications and treatments and everything else.”

One important treatment Beck has ignored, however, is the vaccine. When he appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show in April of 2021, Beck said “I’m not going to get a vaccination because I’ve already had it,” proving that getting one case of Covid-19 does not make you immune forever.

Beck is instead relying on medications such as ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and others which have become popularized primarily by conservative anti-vaccine groups. None of these medications have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a Covid-19 treatment, nor has there been substantive research to prove it yet. The FDA has specifically warned people against taking Ivermectin to treat Covid.

Beck went on to make some misleading claims, saying, “This is basic science, this is basic medicine. That’s what those drugs are used for in many cases. And yet, you’re treated like a moron if you do that. What?”
