Stafford, a member of the Washington County Quorum Court, and another member of the court’s minority caucus, Eva Madison, began whistling that night last night.

Yes, I know that people who take dewormers for large animals are the biggest problem. However, the medical consensus is that while human-grade ivermectin is a miracle cure for some parasites, it has not been shown to be of value against COVID-19. Don’t tell the Darkansas Legislature. Experimenting with prison inmates? Yes, really.

Help us cover the coronavirus crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing all aspects of life in Arkansas. We are interested in hearing from doctors, nurses, and other health care workers; of patients and their families; of people in long-term care facilities and their families; parents and students affected by the crisis; of people who have lost their jobs; by those with knowledge of jobs or communities who do not take appropriate measures to slow the spread of the disease; and more.
