On Joe Rogan’s show, what did Dr. Sanjay Gupta say?
DR. SANJAY GUPTA is an American neurosurgeon, medical reporter, and writer who is now the lead medical correspondent for CNN.
He was recently featured on Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, where he spent over three hours discussing the Coronavirus.
Rogan, 54, is an American podcast host, UFC commentator, comedian, and former television personality who was born on August 11, 1967.
Rogan established the Joe Rogan Experience podcast in 2009 after retiring from fighting, and it has been on the air ever since.
He’s been recognized for his divisive opinions on immunizations and the virus since the Covid-19 pandemic began.
Rogan announced in September 2021 that he had tested positive with the virus but had recovered five days later without the use of a vaccine.
Rogan has been married to Jessica Ditzel since 2009.
During their 3-hour interview, Gupta and the former Taekwondo champion focused mostly on the Covid-19 epidemic.
Rogan took a jab at CNN, stating that Gupta is “probably the only one at CNN who’s delighted” he recovered from Covid so quickly, and that “the rest of them are all lying about me taking horse medication,” referring to CNN’s assertion that Rogan was treated with “horse dewormer” for Covid.
“It’s a lie on a news network…and it’s a falsehood that they’re conscious of,” Rogan stated about the prior newscast. It’s not a blunder. They’re portraying it in a negative light as veterinary medicine.” “They shouldn’t have said that,” Gupta answered, but he rejected Rogan’s assertions that the network covered on his condition “with such delight.” He went on to say that ivermectin still constituted a concern for Covid patients because “to get the plasma, the blood concentrations high enough, you have to take very high doses,” according to some medication trials. The two then moved on to discussing Covid vaccines, with Rogan claiming that he didn’t need one because he already had antibodies.
“I’m a healthy person who exercises regularly, takes vitamins on a regular basis, and looks after myself,” Rogan added.
Gupta quickly pushed back, telling him that “recommending people get infected” is “not a plan.”
He went on to explain Rogan that while it is preferable to never contract the virus, individuals who have already contracted it should still get the shot because it is unknown how long natural immunity lasts or how it differs from person to person.
Following the release of the podcast, Gupta followed up by writing a story for CNN about his experience.
