Saskatchewan Prime Minister Scott Moe asked residents to stop listening to “nonsense on social media” when it comes to collecting COVID-19 information.

Moe made the comments at Thursday’s press conference, which was held to announce that Saskatchewan’s Provincial Emergency Operations Center would take over the province’s emergency response to the COVID-19 situation.

Moe continued to rattle off some of the latest conspiracy theories he has heard about.

“For example, this week I have read and talked to a number of people about being paid by the vaccine manufacturers … well, nothing could be further from the truth.”

“(Regarding) the latest emergency order that I signed; there is a rumor that there is a plot for myself or the health minister to go out and grab people’s cows. That is not true either. ”

Moe said that although these statements are absolutely ridiculous, they would be funny “if the consequences were not so severe today.”

Nor did Moe hold back on conspiracy theorists.

“Believing in and spreading active conspiracy theories against vaccines actually contributes to people dying from COVID by preventing them from being vaccinated.”

Moe clarified that the emergency ordinance he signed would not even allow him to grab everyone’s cows.

The Prime Minister said he believes it is fair for MPs to address this kind of theories sometime, but those relating to medical treatment should be addressed by those in the field.

“If people want to use a horse worm machine e.g. Or a coorming machine for treating COVID-19, I’m not sure the science behind it. A few weeks ago I had asked that there is a possibility that our medical community is actually stepping in and explaining what a horse machine like ivermectin is actually used for and why it might not be as effective when it comes to COVID -19. ”

Ivermectin has been widely refuted by the medical community as a way to treat people who test positive for COVID-19.

A joint statement from the College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSS), Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association, Saskatchewan College of Pharmacy Professionals, Saskatchewan Medical Association and Pharmacy Association of Saskatchewan said they reject the use of ivermectin “for either treatment or prophylaxis of COVID . ”

Health Canada has also shared that ivermectin is not authorized to prevent or treat COVID-19, and if used in this case, it could result in “serious health problems.”

“Health Canada has received reports of the use of veterinary ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. “Canadians should never consume health products intended for animals because of the potential serious health hazards they pose,” it said in a statement.

The human version of ivermectin is authorized for sale in Canada, but only for the treatment of parasitic worm infections in humans.
