Yet another anti-vax broadcaster has died of COVID-19. His name was Marcus Lamb, he was 64 years old, and he was a Christian television host who encouraged people to pray instead of getting the shots for coronavirus. Lamb questioned the effectiveness of the vaccines and whether getting inoculated would instead be harmful to the immune system. He said that as an alternative to getting vaccinated, “we can pray, we can get ivermectin, and budesonide and hydroxychloroquine.” This is a story we have heard so many times in only slightly different forms. There is now a long list of conservative and religious broadcasters who wrote off the vaccines as bad and instead pushed the usual suspect drugs like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. In some of these cases, the people who pushed the alternative treatments wound up getting COVID and some percentage of them have died. Lamb, given his age and being diabetic, probably should have gotten the vaccine and there’s a strong chance it would have saved his life if he did. Unfortunately, Lamb was too deep into the weeds of disinformation to do the reasonable thing and pushed nonsense alternatives instead.
