    Default Ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID

    There are sources online advocating for using Ivermectin to prevent and cure Covid. Many of these come from a Dr. Ryan Cole in Utah.



    The Food and Drug Administration says don't. https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consum...event-covid-19

    Discuss.

    Highly unlikely to be effective.
    Ivermectin is an anti parasitic, used against roundworms, IIRC, which are multicellular organisms.
    The COVID virus is sub cellular, and active inside cells.

    Bolsonaro has been pushing invermectin for a year. I have neighbors who take it regularly as a prophylactic. The running joke is that Bolsonaro's cattle are deworming themselves.

    Glad to see stupidity travels both ways. If you decide to take it, don't forget it only works anally.

    A UK surgeon friend sent me a couple of courses, just in case. Apparently it can reduce the more severe results of covid. Though I did see a crawl on CNN that the WHO didn't reccomend it.
    Friend's info came from further East were lack of vaccine (bit like here in France) in places like India, where it was used to help out, rather than cure.
    After all the hassle here. I dropped into the re-opened local centre to see what was happening and they called me two hours later for our first shot and a booking for the second in a month.
    Possible the WHO don't want people to lose focus on the specific vaccines?
