He tested positive for Covid-19 less than a week after attending a celebrity boxing match in Melbourne and was forced to spend 10 days in isolation.

But Josh Packham was finally granted his medical discharge on Thursday as he filmed himself walking out of his apartment.

The Block star, 27, posted the video to Instagram as the song Freedom! ’90 by George Michael played in the background.

Josh then headed to the elevator after making his exit. 

He filmed himself walking up to the front door of his building before opening it and greeting his dog.

‘Alrighty, nothing like having a dog cry over you for a confidence booster,’ he said, adding. ‘Always make you feel loved.’

While spending time in isolation last week, Josh revealed his controversial treatment plan for battling Covid: taking ivermectin.

Instead of listening to medical professionals who say the drug should not be used to treat coronavirus, Josh announced on Instagram last Wednesday: ‘I’m going to listen to [podcaster] Joe Rogan, [UFC boss] Dana White.’

He said he’d ordered a number of drug treatments online that ‘the government doesn’t want people to take’. 

One of those he cited was the antiparasitic medication ivermectin, which is also used as a horse dewormer.

‘What I am concerned about is that there are no early prevention methods put in place by the government. They basically say have the vaccine, if you catch it stay in isolation or 14 days, and if you’re a really bad case, go to hospital, blah blah blah,’ he explained.

‘I’m going to listen to Joe Rogan, Dana White. They had azithromycin, monoclonal and ivermectin. I’ve got those three on the way for myself today,’ he added. 

‘The government for some reason don’t want people to take them. Apparently it’s dangerous. I’m going to take it, and we’ll see if it works for me, I’m sure it will. What’s more dangerous, Covid or FDA-approved drugs? We’ll see.’

Contrary to Josh’s claim, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved ivermectin for use in treating Covid. 

The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) ‘strongly discourages self-medication and self-dosing with ivermectin for Covid-19 as it may be dangerous to your health’.

A celebrity boxing match held in Melbourne earlier this month triggered a pre-Christmas Covid panic after one of the guests tested positive for the virus. 

Josh was one of those who attended the ‘Pretender to Contender: Whatever It Takes’ boxing event, hosted by Team Ellis promotions at the Melbourne Pavillion on Friday, December 17, and returned a positive result four days later.
