A group of men detained at Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas say that the jail's medical staff gave them the anti-parasite drug ivermectin last year, without their consent, to treat COVID-19.... On Wednesday, the American Civil Liberties Union, on behalf of the inmates, filed a federal lawsuit against the jail and its doctor.

The Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have repeatedly warned against the use of ivermectin for COVID....

...county sheriff Tim Helder confirmed that the facility's doctor Dr. Robert Karas prescribed ivermectin.

...the jail's medical staff told inmates the ivermectin pills were "vitamins," "antibiotics," and/or "steroids."

...

Dayman Blackburn's... medical records, according to the lawsuit, show that he received nearly 6.3 times the approved dosage of ivermectin based on his height and weight.
