Rogan, 54, said he “just to be cautious,” he isolated himself from his family and started getting “fevers and sweats” throughout the night.
“I knew what was going on,” he said. “I got up in the morning, and got tested.”
Rogan said his test came back positive for COVID. Following the test, he began taking several medications, including monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak and prednisone, he said. He also took an NAD drip and a vitamin D drip.
