Drew University’s Nobel Prize-winning RISE Fellow Associate Dr. William Campbell issued a statement denouncing a fake quote attributed to him relating to COVID-19 and ivermectin.
“I utterly despise and deny the remarks attributed to me on social media on September 8, 2021. I reject both the substance and the tone of the remarks, and resent their presentation as a direct quotation. The tweet in question was not concerned with science. I am a biologist with no claim to expertise in the clinical evaluation of drugs against viral infections. Thus, I have not taken a stand in support of, or against, the efficacy of ivermectin against COVID-19.”
