Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it — Lloyd Chambers. That applies to climate science, COVID-19, and Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Lots of news about Ivermection being effective for COVID-19.
I cannot yet tell whether the conclusion below has merit, or if we have another hydroxychloroquine on our hands.
Update January 2021: it sure looks like a massive government failure that has killed another 200K people:
Review of the Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin in the Prophylaxis and Treatment of COVID-19
In keeping with therobustand emerging evidence reviewed above, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance recently created a prophylaxis and early treatment approachfor COVID-19 called "I-MASK+". This protocol includes Ivermectin as a core therapy in both early treatment and prophylaxis of both high-risk patients and post-exposure to household members with COVID-19. The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance is committed to measuring outcomes in those treated with ivermectin and reviewing all emerging results from the current and any future clinical trials of ivermectin in COVID-19.
In summary, based on the existing and cumulative body of evidence, we recommend the use of ivermectin in both prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19. In the presence of a global COVID-19 surge, the widespread use of this safe, inexpensive, and effective intervention could lead to a drastic reduction in transmission rates as well as the morbidity and mortality in mild, moderate, and even severe disease phase.
If true, it sounds like a huge win over a potentially risk vaccine.
