Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Thursday lashed out at the Biden administration for not recommending anti-parasitic drug ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19, even though that drug has not been proven to be effective against the disease.

While appearing on "Real America's Voice," Greene touted ivermectin's purported effectiveness against COVID-19 and gushed that "it even won a Nobel Peace Prize."

In fact, ivermectin did not win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Rather, scientists William C. Campbell and Satoshi Omura won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work showing that ivermectin can be effective in treating against infections caused by roundworm parasites.

None of this means that the drug is effective at treating the novel coronavirus, however.

Greene went on to rail at government officials for not pushing this unproven treatment.

"It is deeply irresponsible for the Biden administration, the CDC, Dr. Fauci, and any of these doctors to be advising people to not prescribe it," she said.
