Fighting COVID-19 and Stupidity

Ivermectin (a horse de-wormer) is dangerous if ingested by humans.

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA.) - In Mississippi one person was hospitalized for ingesting ivermectin — a horse de-wormer — to prevent or treat the Coronavirus.

Reportedly, the state’s poison control center has received an increasing number of calls from individuals with potential ivermectin exposure taken to treat or prevent the virus.

Mississippi State Health Officer Thomas Dobbs warned that there is no scientific evidence that Ivermectin is effective at preventing or treating COVID-19 and is dangerous if ingested by humans.

Between March and this month, Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham promoted the use of ivermectin as an alternative COVID-19 treatment to millions of viewers on their prime-time shows.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was suspended from YouTube in June for posting a video touting Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine as treatments for COVID-19.

It seems Ivermectin is the new Hydroxychloroquine. Studies show Hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19.

Yet, Trump still touts it as an effective treatment for COVID-19. And remember when Trump was criticized by the medical community after suggesting research into whether Coronavirus might be treated by injecting disinfectant into the body? He also proposed irradiating patients' bodies with UV light.

Mississippi is at a severe COVID-19 risk level and has one of the lowest vaccine rates. Why would anyone be foolish enough to buy a horse de-wormer at a feed store when vaccines proven to be effective are readily available and free?

Unless the person advocating a cure for COVID-19 is a medical expert, I suggest you be wary as the “cure" may be dangerous or even fatal. Those getting their news from Trump or Fox News should be especially on guard.

Ivermectin was approved for use in humans in 1996. It seems like there is a huge push all over the internet to discredit it as a possible prophylactic against covid. It IS readily available as animal dewormer in any farm store, and people make the mistake of thinking that they can use it in place of the prescription version, but of course they can't know the proper dose to avoid becoming ill from it. But that doesn't change the fact that a lot of people have had success against covid with prescription ivermectin, and it was used to help stop the outbreak in India previously.

its not just a horse dewormer. its also an anti-parasitic used in humans. And there is a lot of data that shows that it does lessen covid-19 symptoms. the problem comes when people take the stuff that is made for animals instead of getting a prescription.
