Glenn Beck says he has COVID-19 for the second time, says virus 'invades lungs'

(The hill) – Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Wednesday said he had contracted COVID-19 for the second time and the virus had “entered” his lungs.

Speak with Mark Levin on Levin .’s radio showBeck said he’s had the virus for about a week. He told Levin he was “amazing, except he had COVID and saw the destruction of our country.”

Beck said this was a “lighter case, but it’s starting to get into my lungs today, which is a little disturbing,” adding, “I’m on all the drugs and treatments and everything else, so we’ll see.”

Beck told Tucker Carlson in April that he previously had COVID-19 and therefore would not be vaccinated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone, even those who have previously contracted the virus, get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Those who are not vaccinated after their recovery are more than twice as likely to get COVID-19 again than those who are fully vaccinated after their recovery,” the CDC says.

Beck told Levin he wasn’t being treated with monoclonal antibodies, some of which are less effective against the omicron strain of the virus, but instead took ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and fluvoxamine — none of the approved coronavirus treatments — and that his doctors are “adamant.” against it.”

The two went on to discuss unproven medical claims about the drugs, with Beck claiming it was “basic science.”

Hint posted about his second positive test on Instagram also, calling it “simply the worst ‘cold’ I’ve ever had” and lamented the lack of access to unapproved treatments, some of which were heavily touted by former President Trump and his allies.

Beck told Levin he is “not concerned” about his infection, adding that he is “so done with this whole COVID thing” and that “we need to get on with our lives”.

He also joked that he was “a fat-fat-fat” and said “that’s probably not the best,” while also noting, “I’ve got some other issues.”

Various studies have shown that two of the most widely used monoclonal antibodies are ineffective against the omicron variant, leaving only one monoclonal treatment, made by GlaxoSmithKline, available for high-risk patients.

Ivermectin is an antifungal medication. It is not approved for the treatment of COVID-19, and after widespread reports that people were trying to use the form of the drug intended for livestock to treat or prevent coronavirus, the Food and Drug Administration has warnings issued against its use unless directed by a physician.

Likewise, the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine has been found to be ineffective against COVID-19 by the National Institutes of Health, and the World Health Organization has warned against its use in the treatment of COVID-19.

The antidepressant fluvoxamine is Currently still under investigation into possible treatment options, and a doctor asked for emergency use in December.
