A video has been viewed more than two million times in posts that claim a doctor on an Australian TV programme endorsed deworming drug stromectol — which contains ivermectin — to treat Queen Elizabeth II after she tested positive for Covid-19. However, the Australian network that broadcast the programme said it had mistakenly referenced stromectol in the report. The doctor who was interviewed on the programme issued a clarification on Twitter that he had not endorsed stromectol as a Covid-19 treatment.
