Ivermectin is a broad spectrum anthelmintic....
It's basically cats' worming tablets. Used on humans (less often) in Africa if they fall in a river or elsewhere if they for some reason get worms.
Does it cure corona virus now as well as worm and mite infestations?
No, however some people are suggesting online that untrialled treatment with massive doses can reduce symptoms for people in low-risk groups. They pretend there's some information being mysteriously 'withheld' (despite the internet being smeared with alternative theories).
The same sort of people who get in trouble for advocating bleach enemas for autistic kids or turning yourself blue by drinking (the pointless) colloidal silver are pushing it. Probably to make mischief as much as anything else.
Unfortunately, the bigger the dose, the bigger the side effects. Even a small dose for worms has side-effects, never mind the massive doses that some people are trying to push for covid. Apparently clinical trials were considered, however Ivermectin didn't meet the standards.
Meanwhile, I've got a date for the vaccination, which is good news.
