Allen West, Who is Treating His COVID With Ivermectin, Says He is Going to Hospital With Pneumonia

Allen West, the Chair of the Texas Republican Party, has made his reputation for being incredibly Conservative. And in that vein, he refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Not surprisingly, West came down with the virus. And he has maintained his Trumpian stance against the illness by treating himself with hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. Last night, the Republican announced that he will be admitted into the hospital because he has contracted pneumonia.

West’s account tweeted yesterday, “Col. West will be available through virtual means to do events until his family’s health issue is rectified. He is already taking Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin protocols. The West family thanks y’all for your prayers. “God’s blessings and Texas First!”

The account later sent out an update which read, “I want to thank all of you for your prayers. Angela and I just completed the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy and are in the observation period. There‚Äôs a concern about my oxygen saturation levels, which are at 89 and they should be at 95. My chest X-rays do show COVID pneumonia, not serious. I am probably going to be admitted to the hospital.”
