Laurence Fox has revealed he has caught Covid – but says he will tackle it with hot toddies and over the counter medication, including worming tablets.
The controversial actor turned activist, 43, contracted the virus days after posting a T-shirt stating ‘no vaccine needed. I have an immune system’.
Fox, who has been in Mexico, doubled down on his opposition to the jab in isolation.
He posted his Covid test result on Twitter, but at first appeared to question whether it was accurate questioning if ‘The LFT is to be believed’.
Later he described himself as being ‘so happy’ to be ‘joining the natural immunity club’.
Then after he was mocked for taking Ivermectin, Panadol and Ibruprofen to relieve his symptoms, he posted a video to his account, railing against the vaccine.
Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic medicine used to treat humans and animals for worms.
It is approved in America by the Food and Drug Administration to treat intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis as well as pediculosis and rosacea.
The FDA has told people not to use Ivermectin to treat or prevent Covid.
Fox was confident on January 26 that he did not need a vaccine, according to his new T-shirt
Last night after catching Covid he turned to whiskey and honey for hot toddies to try help
Last night Fox posted a picture of a bottle of Jack Daniels and honey and called it ‘the final piece of the puzzle’.
Fox – who described catching coronavirus as ‘A visit from Lord Covid’ – said in a video online: ‘I don’t often read the replies to my tweets but I saw that there were loads of them.
‘The thing that made me laugh the most – the absolute most – was people criticising me for taking Panadol and Ibrupofen while saying my immune system “I thought you had an immune system mate”.
Mr Fox posted a picture of his lateral flow test on his public Twitter which showed his result
After he was mocked by some social media users he posted a video in response to some
In the one-and-a-half minute clip he gave a mocking shout-out to those who had got the jab
Bon Iver? Is worm medicine any good for treating Covid?
Ivermectin is a basic drug used in shampoo form by millions of British parents to treat headlice.
It was first marketed in 1981 and routinely used worldwide to combat head lice and (in tablet form) the skin parasite scabies and other worm infection.
Ivermectin works by blocking proteins used by worms to disable the host’s immune system.
But after initially being thought it could help Covid, the US’s FDA said it should not be used to treat or prevent the virus.
‘So I just want to give a huge shout out to those who whenever they get a bit ill are willing to take a total novel brand new technology mRNA treatment with absolutely no data ahead of medications that have been prescribed by billions and billions of times across the world.
‘I feel a bit man flu-y but that’s only to be expected because you know men whinge more.
‘But you know I am going to fight this and to you brave vaccine guinea pigs, I fully commend you and your desire not to take Panadol ever again or Ibruprofen, because that’s some dangerous sh** – you stick to the vaccines.’
Fox recently got engaged to prep school teacher Arabella Fleetwood Neagle, 28.
Miss Fleetwood Neagle apparently supports his political campaigning as she was pictured alongside him on the top deck of his Reclaim Party’s battle bus during his unsuccessful bid to become London Mayor last year.
Fox – whose acting dynasty includes his father James and cousin Emilia – was dropped by his agent in 2020 after a string of social media comments.
Last year he said he could remove his children from school over his opposition to the Covid vaccination programme.
He said he would educate them at home rather than let them be vaccinated without his consent.
Fox shares custody of his boys with Miss Piper, whom he divorced in 2016.
