    A person in New Mexico is suspected of dying from an overdose of ivermectin, a state official announced Thursday. A second person in the state is also in critical condition following use of the drug, which is an antiparasitic medication mainly used in veterinary medicine to deworm animals, such as cattle and horses.
    If the death is confirmed to have been caused by ivermectin, it is believed to be New Mexico’s first known fatal ivermectin overdose. The dewormer has recently seen a sharp rise in use—and poisonings from it—due to false claims that it can treat and prevent COVID-19. https://arstechnica.com/science/2021/09/ivermectin-overdose-death-probed-in-nm-i-dont-want-more-people-to-die/
    In a press briefing Thursday, New Mexico Human Services Secretary Dr. David Scrase said he took a “calculated risk” in announcing the suspected overdose death “without firm documentation” that ivermectin was to blame. An investigation into the cause of death could take weeks, he said.
    But word that ivermectin was the cause of the death was “reliable,” Dr. Scrase said. “I don’t want more people to die of an ivermectin overdose in the next four weeks while we’re gathering data.”
    “I’d just like people to know that—if there are people out there taking it—it can kill them,” he added. https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/patient-safety-outcomes/new-mexico-investigating-1st-potential-fatal-poisoning-from-ivermectin.html
