Group of doctors contracting COVID-19 after anti-vaccination summit in Florida

A group of doctors attending an “anti-vaccine” summit in Florida either tested positive for COVID-19 or developed symptoms days after the event, according to a report.

The everyday beast reports that the doctors fell ill after participating in the event earlier this month at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida, where alternative treatments for COVID-19 were discussed. The event “The Day the Earth Listened” took place on November 6.

Event organizer John Littell told The Daily Beast that seven doctors out of 800 to 900 participants tested positive for the coronavirus or developed symptoms within days of the conference.

Littell told the news channel he did not consider the conference a super spreader event and said he believed those infected had contracted the virus from their home state before arriving at the event.

“I think they got it from New York or Michigan or wherever they came from,” he said. “It was really the people flying in from other places.”

Among the doctors who contracted the virus was Bruce Boros, a 71-year-old cardiologist who advocated the use of ivermectin as an effective treatment against COVID-19 at the event.

“I’ve been taking ivermectin for 16 months, my wife and I,” Boros said at the event, according to The Daily Beast. “I’ve never felt healthier in my life.”

The outlet reports that he became ill with COVID-19 two days later.

Boros also said he was angry that his 97-year-old father was getting the COVID-19 vaccine, saying he believed he had been “brainwashed”. Boros said his father had passed away on the morning of the conference.

Littell reportedly said the doctors are being treated with ivermectin, noting, “Bruce is doing well.”

Ivermectin is a drug used to kill parasites in animals and humans and is not approved for use in the treatment of COVID-19.
