Arkansas prisoners sue jail after allegedly receiving ivermectin to treat COVID-19 without their consent

292

Four Arkansas inmates claim they were prescribed the controversial medicine to treat COVID-19 without their knowledge.

According to the lawsuit filed by the inmates at the Washington County Detention Center, the facility’s medical staff prescribed the controversial antiparasitic drug ivermectin to treat COVID-19 without their knowledge.

"The truth, however, was that without knowing and voluntary consent, plaintiffs ingested incredibly high doses of a drug that credible medical professionals, the FDA, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all agree is not an effective treatment against COVID-19, and that if given in large doses is dangerous for humans," the lawsuit states.

The defendants in the suit are listed as the Washington County jail, Washington County Sheriff Tim Helder, and Dr. Robert Karas of the jail's health provider, Karas Correctional Health.

The ACLU insisted in their complaint that such is not the case.

"No one — including incarcerated individuals — should be deceived and subject to medical experimentation. Sheriff Helder has a responsibility to provide food, shelter, and safe, appropriate care to incarcerated individuals," Gary Sullivan, legal director of the ACLU of Arkansas, said in a statement.
