Writer claims Ivermectin is valid treatment for COVID-19
September 30, 2021
“Please don’t use Ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.”
“That headline says it all doesn’t it?”
Impervious to his own advice, the editor spends several more paragraphs bludgeoning his readers lest they dare consider using Ivermectin for any patient that doesn’t have four legs.
Apparently Mr. Martin is unaware that Ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines (that is, for humans.).
The utility of Ivermectin in treating COVID-19 was discovered through analysis of African populations, who routinely use the drug for prophylaxis of several dreaded parasitic diseases, by comparison to groups in neighboring countries not using the drug prophylactically. It turned out that morbidity and mortality from COVID-19 was dramatically reduced in those taking Ivermectin. While this result is admittedly retrospective, a double-blind prospective study of Ivermectin, with more than 10,000 patients, was just completed in Tokyo (after millions of doses of vaccine were pulled off their market due to the discovery of contamination by magnetic metallic particles). All patients in the Japanese study survived and are doing well.
It’s instructive to do a web search for the results of that Japanese study amidst a blizzard of “fact-checking” decoy websites: sadly, Ivermectin only costs a few pennies to manufacture, and, unlike Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, no new billionaires will ride Ivermectin to fame and fortune---no matter how many lives it saves. Since the Editor appears to be branching out into dispensing healthcare advice, perhaps he can tell us the purpose for graphene oxide (identified by Spanish researchers) in the vaccine.
