Not doing large scale studies for Ivermectin opens the door for EUA vaccine approval. We know that because of the FDA document on EUA (the document expires in 2022); EUA criteria for issuance of medical products. D: there must be no adequate or approved product alternative.
In Africa people take it to prevent and cure river blindness, they even take it weekly suggesting that long term use of Ivermectin is not problematic.
Ivermectin is readily makeable, has been around for a long time and is no longer under patent. Anyone can make it and not violate any laws. Merck owned the patent until expiry in 1996. In 2015 a nobel prize was awarded to a 1950’s Merck scientist for discovering the compound that became ivermectin.
In 2020 Merck was asked to assist in Japanese and Nigerian trials but declined both.
In 2021 Merck released a statement claiming that Ivermectin was not an effective treatment against Covid-19; Merck blamed “a concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies” which is bizarre considering that
– in the 1990’s Merck had no issues donating it to be distributed in mass rollouts by primary care workers in mass campaigns to millions in developing countries.
The media reported the Merck statement as a binding truth without looking at the conflict of interest.
Millions of people stand to benefit – cheap to make, safe to distribute, long longitudinal uptake 4 billion doses have administered safetly up until now.
It shows up in the youtube community guidelines “do not promote Ivermectin as a Covid-19 treatment”
December 11, 2020 – The Associated Press fact checked ivermectin concluding there is “no evidence ivermectin is a miracle drug”. A couple things wrong with this; The title “no evidence that ivermectin is a miracle drug” is a hyperbole that’s holding ivermectin to a higher standard than even the vaccines. The fact checker uses the example of two people who drank fish cleaner and got sick; the fish cleaner contains an ingredient that is also in hydroxychloroquine making the AP argument baseless on so many levels.
Ivermectin Effective with better Safety Record than Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines
Merck held the patent for Ivermectin until 1996 when it expired; ivermectin has since been free to use, not bound to any patent laws.
