Ivermectin: Neither COVID Quick Fix nor Poisonous Horse Drug

“Ivermectin was not picked out of a hat as a potential treatment for coronavirus by the vaccine skeptics. Indeed, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a report in February suggesting that it could be an effective treatment option …. Overall, the NIH concluded at that time that ‘there is insufficient evidence for the COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.’ … On the other hand, those promoting it — or at least those who decline to rule it out — as a treatment method argue that most people who have not yet been inoculated against the coronavirus are unpersuadable, and that at least allowing for the possibility of and researching alternative treatment methods are the best way to mitigate the effects of vaccine skepticism.” (09/07/21)
