During this entire year and a half now of COVID, anytime a tried and true, cheap, generic drug is reported to be effective in the treatment of the disease, the FDA, Centers for Disease Control, and their mouthpieces in the mainstream media shout from the rooftops that such treatments are “ineffective.”
It happened in the beginning with the Zelenko protocol of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and an anti-biotic, which has been proven to work in multiple studies, and it is now happening with Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medication that is most commonly found in horse dewormers but has been used for dogs as well.
Ivermectin was approved for use in humans in 1987, and, in fact, the discovery of its success for use in humans earned William C. Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura a Nobel Prize in medicine in 2015. The drug has hardly any interactions with other medications, and it is cheap. It’s used in the treatment of Rosacea.
In the English speaking world, however, this success is being outright censored from most mainstream media, and the constant drumbeat is that the drug is for veterinary use, not human, and people shouldn’t think for themselves, and take action like go to a place where the drug is actually available as pharmacies won’t always fill prescriptions for it, and take matters into their own hands.
There is actually a weight chart for how much Ivermectin to give in the dosage, and that is not really available which is probably why a man in Australia overdosed on it. Now, that incident is being used to push the anti-Ivermectin narrative.
The Western Sydney resident, who was admitted to Westmead Hospital, was lucky he didn’t develop severe toxicity after self-medicating with the unproven cocktail he bought online, toxicologist Naren Gunja told abc.net.au.
Ivermectin is a deworming drug often prescribed for animals, according to the US Federal Drug Administration, which has also warned against COVID patients using the medication.
The drug is also approved for humans, but at very specific doses — and not to treat viruses, the agency added.
“The reality is, there are many trials that have been done into ivermectin, not a single one of them have shown to be effective,” Kelly said.
“Now, in the future, maybe that will change. We’ve learned to be nimble in our appraisal of the scientific evidence right throughout this pandemic, but absolutely and categorically please do not take unproven medicine at this time. It is ineffective and not safe.”
Except that it is proven, and whole countries are using Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID to great success.
The real problem with Ivermectin is the pharmaceutical company Merck owns the patent. They are one of the big pharma companies not involved with gene therapy programming. They also are not, unlike Pfizer, a revolving door with the FDA for personnel.
Follow the money, and suddenly the protests against an approved drug become clear.
