Ivermectin and the Virus

Ivermectin and the Virus, by David Archibald.

Ivermectin was discovered in the late 1970s, in a program that tested thousands of soil samples around Japan. …

It was approved for human use by the FDA in 1987, and has cured hundreds of millions of people from parasitic worm infections. It is also used to treat worms in farm animals, dogs and cats. Ivermectin is quite benign, with an 18 hour half-life in the body and a wide therapeutic window. …

A recent clinical trial of ivermectin in the Argentinian hospital system produced spectacular results. … The study team recruited 1,195 health professionals, of whom 407 received no treatment and 788 received self-administered ivermectin oral drops and an iota-carrageenan nasal spray five times per day over a 14 day period. Carrageenan is an emulsifier extracted from red seaweed.

The Argentinian study team reported that the study data revealed that of the participants in the control group (those not taking the study drug combination), 58% of the participants were infected with COVID-19 during the duration of the trial. The study team reported no contagions were recorded in the carrageenan and ivermectin arm. So the result was 58% out of 407 not taking ivermectin became infected while nobody in the 788 people taking ivermectin were infected with the virus.

The same result was achieved in an informal experiment in a French nursing home which was having an outbreak of scabies. Ivermectin was prescribed to all residents and staff of the nursing home. While there were widespread casualties in nearby nursing homes, no deaths or severe cases of COVID-19 occurred among the residents and staff of the nursing home with the scabies outbreak.

Molecules with good anti-worm and anti-viral properties also tend to have anti-cancer efficacy. So it is with ivermectin …

Where can you get it?

Ivermectin’s results have shown that nobody has to die from the virus. If you want to prepare for the inevitable but don’t want to get a script for it, there are plenty of choices available from the veterinary trade:

Keep it in the freezer to extend its life and calculate your doseage from your weight. Given that long half-life of 18 hours, daily dosing should do it.
