For some reason “conservatives” fell in love with the horse worm POISON Ivermectin and spent months denouncing the FDA for not endorsing it for Covid treatment. Ignoring medical science led to hundreds of thousands of doses being consumed by human beings with no benefit and multiple hospitalizations from its effects. Well, this new study confirms what informed medical science has been saying all along – Ivermectin is NOT an effective treatment for Covid-19 at any stage. Maybe the next time Joe Rogan offers medical advice “conservatives” will trust the FDA instead. Or not.
Ivermectin got on the radar because of early anecdotal evidence that it did some good in impoverished African countries. Yes, it did. Here is why. It kills worms. That is what it does. Internal parasites weaken your body. Killing them gives you a better chance to overcome Covid. Internal parasites are common in such countries. In the United States? Not so much.
