Ivermectin: Cheap, Safe, Effective Cure for COIV-19? By Joanne Nova.
Researchers at Monash University found that one of the main components of sheep drench is also very good at reducing Coronavirus, at least in test tubes.
Ivermectin’s an unsung hero of the world of biochemistry, called a “Wonder Drug” and a “Blockbuster” because it works against roundworms, lungworms, mites, lice, scabies and hornflies, as well as cattle-ticks. Most importantly, it kills the worm that causes River Blindness, saving the vision of thousands in sub-Saharan Africa, and places like Ecuador.
That’s doesn’t mean it will work in vivo — and it may be a month before human trials begin so we can find out. …
The cost of Ivermectin is around 15c in the third world, and $50 for one round for a human in New York. (Still a lot cheaper than a $5000 a day ICU bed.) …
It is used on humans, even in children … It can be taken orally to kill head lice. It just means a lot of safety testing has been done already.
An anti-parasitic head lice drug available around the world has been found to kill COVID-19 in the lab within 48 hours.
Researchers at Monash University found Ivermectin can kill COVID-19 cells.
Btw, Australian authorities don’t mention chloroquinine much partly because Australia has almost none of it.
But Ivermectin is used in sheep dip and cattle drench. Got plenty of that.
