Days after revealing he'd tested positive for COVID-19, Joe Rogan posted a negative test result to his Instagram Friday. "Tested negative today! Thanks for all the kind wishes!" the podcaster wrote along with a photo of a digital readout. Just the previous Wednesday, the Joe Rogan Experience host announced the news he had COVID in an video captioned "I GOT COVID." He said at the time he returned home Saturday night after performing three shows in Florida (which is experiencing its highest-ever COVID surge, the New York Times reports) and soon spiked a fever, then tested positive the next morning.

Per the New York Post, Rogan said in his initial announcement that he took “monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything. I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip and I did that three days in a row. Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great.” Rogan's upbeat attitude was likely due to the monoclonal antibodies, the same treatment Donald Trump received last year and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott this year. Less likely to have led to his quick turnaround was the ivermectin, an animal dewormer not recommended by experts for use against COVID. (Read more Joe Rogan stories.)
