Polk Commission Rejects Combee’s Letter on Ivermectin

Polk County Commissioner Neil Combee wanted the other commissioners to sign a letter he wrote to Gov. Ron DeSantis promoting the public’s right to try unapproved COVID treatments, but they declined to go along in a 3-2 vote this morning. With only Bill Braswell, supporting the letter, Combee said he would send the letter on his own behalf supporting use of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, The Ledger reported. | ALSO: View the letter | News Channel 8 coverage
