Is Ivermectin a safe way to fight COVID-19 as Delta-variant cases rise?

Inexpensive drug appears to shorten hospital stays, possibly a use as prophylactic treatment

In the battle against COVID-19, the Delta variant is currently getting the most attention, as roughly three out of four cases being reported by health officials are this variant of the coronavirus. “Breakthrough cases” are being reported as 125,000 vaccinated individuals have now gotten this version of COVID.

People are understandably seeking numerous ways to prevent getting the virus. Boosting your immune system is important and low vitamin D levels appear to significantly increase people’s risk of getting the virus.

What about Ivermectin or other alternative “repurposed” medications?

Last fall, local Physicians Assistant Scott Miller shared an early perspective on helping his patients with possible medications. Ivermectin is one that he’s seen a decrease in viral replication within 48 hours. It’s anti-parasitic, but it can be vital for especially at-risk patients, and it’s very affordable, Miller said.

In December, Dr. Pierre Kory testified in Congress about the positive impact Ivermectin had in fighting the virus. He represented the Front-Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC). They were interested in finding research on the use of any other already existing, safe, low-cost therapeutic agents.

“Ivermectin is highly safe, widely available, and low cost,” Kory said. “Its discovery was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine, and is already included on the WHO’s ‘World’s List of Essential Medicines.’

CLICK TO PLAY VIDEO. Dr. Pierre Kory of the Front-Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance addresses a Senate committee and answers questions about the use and effectiveness of ivermectin. 


“We now have data from over 20 well-designed clinical studies, ten of them randomized, controlled trials, with every study consistently reporting large magnitude and statistically significant benefits in decreasing transmission rates, shortening recovery times, decreasing hospitalizations, or large reductions in deaths.”

The National Institutes of Health said in February there was insufficient data to “recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.” Lab tests found the drug stopped the reproduction of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that caused the disease. However, to be effective, the dosages would need to be “100-fold higher than those approved for use in humans.”

In March, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a special warning that “you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19. Using any treatment for COVID-19 that’s not approved or authorized by the FDA, unless part of a clinical trial, can cause serious harm,” the FDA says.

A study first published in Nov. 2020 reported a lower incidence associated with prophylactic administration of ivermectin by evaluating countries in Africa that regularly take the drug for parasitic infections. 

“We show that countries with routine mass drug administration of prophylactic chemotherapy including ivermectin have a significantly lower incidence of COVID-19. Prophylactic use of ivermectin against parasitic infections is most common in Africa and we hence show that the reported correlation is highly significant both when compared among African nations as well as in a worldwide context.”

The authors noted that the percentage of the overall population that received prophylactic treatment using ivermectin mostly ranged from 30–90 percent, yet “there was no significant difference in the resulting incidence of COVID-19. Even the lower treatment coverages achieved the same reductions resulting from MDA reaching nearly the entire population.” The reasons for this fact are so far unexplained.

The Jerusalem Post reported Aug. 2 that a new Israeli study shows positive results. A small randomized, controlled, double-blind trial from May 2020, through January 2021, evaluated the effectiveness of ivermectin in reducing viral shedding among non-hospitalized patients with mild to moderate COVID-19.

Nearly 72 percent of volunteers treated with ivermectin tested negative for the virus by day six. In contrast, only 50 percent of those who received the placebo tested negative.

The study also looked at how infectious the patients were, and found that only 13 percent of ivermectin patients were infectious after six days, compared with 50 percent of the placebo group – almost four times as many.

The study did not prove ivermectin was effective as a prophylactic, meaning that it could prevent disease, nor did it show that it reduces the chances of hospitalization.

The American Journal of Therapeutics did release a study showing some positive results for prophylactic use of ivermectin, in addition to its use in treating COVID-19.

Their conclusion states: “Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.”

Yet the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended against using the drug except in clinical trials. The Israeli doctor in the above referenced story said he was very disappointed that the WHO did not support any trial to determine whether the drug could be viable.

“Developing new medications can take years; therefore, identifying existing drugs that can be repurposed against COVID-19 [and] that already have an established safety profile through decades of use could play a critical role in suppressing or even ending the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic,” wrote the researchers in the American Journal of Therapeutics. “Using repurposed medications may be especially important because it could take months, possibly years, for much of the world’s population to get vaccinated, particularly among low- to middle-income populations.”

Evaluating “repurposed drugs” is what Dr. Kory and his FLCCC Alliance are all about.

“Why is the FDA attacking a safe, effective drug” asked David Henderson and Charles Hooper in the Wall St. Journal last month.

“Ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Merck has donated four billion doses to prevent river blindness and other diseases in Africa and other places where parasites are common. A group of 10 doctors who call themselves the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance have said ivermectin is “one of the safest, low cost, and widely available drugs in the history of medicine.”

They report 70 clinical trials are evaluating the use of ivermectin for treating COVID-19. The statistically significant evidence suggests that it is safe and works for both treating and preventing the disease.

Fewer ivermectin patients developed respiratory distress (2.6 percent vs. 15.8 percent); fewer required oxygen (9.6 percent vs. 45.9 percent); fewer required antibiotics (15.7 percent vs. 60.2 percent); and fewer entered intensive care (0.1 percent vs. 8.3 percent). Ivermectin-treated patients tested negative faster, in four days instead of 15, and stayed in the hospital nine days on average instead of 15. Ivermectin patients experienced 13.3 percent mortality compared with 24.5 percent in the control Group.

Moreover, the drug can help prevent Covid-19. One 2020 article in Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications looked at what happened after the drug was given to family members of confirmed Covid-19 patients. Less than 8 percent became infected, versus 58.4 percent of those untreated. Among 200 healthcare workers and others at high risk of exposure, only 2 percent of those given ivermectin developed Covid-19. But 10 percent of the control group did.”

They cite the American Journal of Therapeutics. “Out of four billion doses administered since 1998, there have been only 28 cases of serious neurological adverse events.” The same study found that ivermectin has been used safely in pregnant women, children and infants

Dr. Kory and FLCCC Alliance reported in May that South Africa, Zimbabwe, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Mexico, and India, have approved the drug for use by medical professionals.

In June, Oxford University in the UK added ivermectin to a major study.They indicate little data from large-scale randomised controlled clinical trials are available to validate its effect on recovery speed or decreasing hospitalisation. They hope to change that.

Chief investigator professor Chris Butler said: “Ivermectin is readily available globally, has been in wide use for many other infectious conditions so it’s a well-known medicine with a good safety profile, and because of the early promising results in some studies it is already being widely used to treat COVID-19 in several countries.

“By including ivermectin in a large-scale trial, we hope to generate robust evidence to determine how effective the treatment is against COVID-19, and whether there are benefits or harms associated with its use.”

The Oxford University Principle Trial has more than 5,000 participants and will give a three-day course of oral ivermectin treatment to individuals randomly and compare their results to individuals who will receive standard care. 

In the US, the NIH is evaluating therapeutics for COVID-19 with its Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) master protocol. Ivermectin was added in phase three of ACTIV-6, which will test the effectiveness of repurposed drugs.

There has been a growing number of people taking ivermectin for animals as word spread on social media about its possible use to cure COVID-19. This has resulted in some people calling state poison centers after taking the incorrect dosage since the medication is intended for animals.

“If the FDA were driven by science and evidence, it would give an emergency-use authorization for ivermectin for Covid-19,” said Henderson and Hooper. “Instead, the FDA asserts without evidence that ivermectin is dangerous.

“At the bottom of the FDA’s warning against ivermectin is this statement: ‘Meanwhile, effective ways to limit the spread of COVID-19 continue to be to wear your mask, stay at least 6 feet from others who don’t live with you, wash hands frequently, and avoid crowds.’ Is this based on the kinds of double-blind studies that the FDA requires for drug approvals? No.”

It is affective and for any doctor to not recommend a drug which has no harmful side effects that could potentially save someone’s life is irresponsible and just shameful. Why does India use the drug among other nations? The amount of trust I have lost for the US medical community is beyond words. Do your own research people …look outside of the USA for different opinions….we are being fed narratives to make money for big pharma.

I just think it’s funny how they don’t have enough data to say yay or nay to using it but they wanna force everyone to take these vaccines with a minuscule amount of testing and that’s doesn’t work at all. Causes some really scary morphing of people’s blood cells. (Imagine a plate of spaghetti o’s all of them separated and not mushed. That’s normal. People having gotten the shot and had blood swatches tested now look like the o’s have combined with each other and flattened out.

Uhh, what? You don’t know what you’re talking about, and you have poor grammar, as does the guy above you.

No vaccine turns your blood to spaghetti-O’s. In fact, 98% of American physicians have had their Covid vaccines, and the only spaghetti-o complaints overheard were those mentioning the hospital cafeteria’s redundant serving of canned pasta.

Additionally, there’s robust evidence of the safety of the vaccines considering that now well over half of Americans are fully vaccinated.

The only people we see dying are those that haven’t gotten their shots, probably as a result of being sold quack alternative “natural” medicines on Facebook by their high school friends. Btw, botulism, too, is “natural,” folks.

Not true. The majority of breakthrough cases if that’s what they are calling them now, 60 to 70 percent are from vaccinated people. Pfizer has 14 days to provide all the ingredients they used in this concoction..for their data sheet..which currently is BLANK. We’ll see.. if they don’t provide, the FDA will deny them. The story that it was approved was jumping the gun a tad. It’s not approved

So dumb. Do you remember SARS? Because if you do, then you know when mRNA vaccines first started being developed. And, wait for it, specifically against coronaviruses. Since you’re probably extremely malinformed, sars is also a coronavirus. This vaccine has been in development for literally decades. The only thing they changed for covid-19, was the targeted spike protein.

mrna therapies have been around since the fucking 90’s. If you have any idea about how mrna works, you shouldn’t have any worry about ‘blood cell mutations.’

first thing Mexico does is deliver directly to your home, they put you on it immediately. We have two friends in Mexico and one has Covid and that is exactly what they gave him. Another long time friend in a wheelchair had two scary days, took Ivermectin by day 3 so much better, he never got really ill thank god, as we know he already does not breath well. His dad got Covid 3.5 months after his vaccine, he is been in ICU for 6 weeks. Finally got a Dr. to prescribe Ivermectin, he is not going to be moved to rehab, AFTER the family being told he would most likely not be leaving the hospital. These are real people, these are out friends. I only know what we have seen and I have to say it worked…

In addition, ivermectin formulated for animals is far different than formulation for humans. Ivermectin has been used very successfully with humans and has proven very safe.

Gemma,

You may not mean to, but you’re stating to appear as though you might be working for one of the companies who look for discussions and post contrary opinions.

More likely is that you can be a person who has been terrified by the media to have an unnecessarily high fear of this flu.

The antidote to that is to turn off the television, stop streaming videos and don’t read the news for a few days. Take a breath and allow yourself to rest.

Keeping people in a high state of anxiety has been proven to lower immune response. Anyone can simply put;

people in a high state of anxiety have lower immune response

… into the address, or url, bar of your Web browser and click to search.

This entire scenario is a double-edged sword. Keeping people ramped up can result in those people getting ill – and not necessarily from Covid.

Please consider taking the time to rest and recover from the constant barrage of bad news being presently pushed.

Ivermectin has been in use medically (human use) since 1981. That’s 40 years. How do you get “desperate” use if it’s been around, and proven generally safe, since 1981?

I tested the theory that oil keeps engines running. It seemed to prevent problems for me but further study was needed. So I ran a trial. I drained all the oil an put in two quarts. Ran the truck for 3 days and blew the damned engine. So I can’t tell if oil works or not. The evidence is inconclusive.

Thank you again John for taking the time to get this information out to the public. I can tell you unequivocally that Ivermectin saves lives, But for those to reach out to me that are in a late stage infection, but often takes much more than a round of ivermectin. The vitamins are also essential, vitamin D, vitamin C, NAC, glutathione, melatonin, zinc, quercetin, aspirin, etc, along with dexamethasone, zithromax or doxycycline, budesonide, etc. The goal is to keep these patients out of the hospital, where all known effective treatments are discontinued and regardless of a patient’s increased need for supplemental oxygen, no changes are made regarding increased dosing/further therapeutics for management of the inflammatory phase. Currently, their ICU management of acute inflammatory phase of covid-19, is similar to the management of a 5-year-old with croup (outside of the supplemental oxygen.)
It will take only a very short time before we look back and will be able to prove that what our hospital systems have done is equally as nefarious as the concentration camp showers

The fact that someone can equate American hospitals in 2021 to Aushwitz with absolutely no argument says a lot about the community here at CCT. I’m going to be the rebel in the echo chamber: comparing the pandemic response to the Holocaust is despicable, cowardly, and intellectually lazy. Inject your bleach, crack open your chest for some sunshine, and take your hydrochloroquine/ivermectin if you want but please stop with the false equivalencies.

Why is the vaccine disinformation crowd so adamantly against a vaccine with transparent, though accelerated, trials but so in favor of “miracle” drugs that have trials that are so flawed that they can’t even publish them. One could almost think there is a political angle here. I guess that would explain why there were as many MAGA and F*CK BIDEN signs and flags at the “vaccine choice” rally on Mill Plain Saturday as there were medical choice signs.

600K Americans died because COVID-19 positive seniors in at least four states were sent into the nursing homes — already known for being a dangerous place to be during a flu season, let alone a pandemic. Nothing to see there! Millions of Americans went to testing centers instead of doctor’s offices and when they did call their doctors they were told not to come in — just stay at home and go to the hospital if the hypoxia sets in. When patients got to the hospital they got the same intervention that a child with croup would get — not the all-hands-on deck response to a novel pathogen already known to have a high mortality rate among people who are 40+ years old. And those hospitals? They got $13K for diagnosing a COVID-19 patient and $39K for patients on ventilators, of which only about 20% survived. Can we say, conflict of interest? No it’s not the holocaust. But it will go down in history as America’s most shameful public health moment — until the next time. And there will be a next time. Just ask Bill Gates. He’s already said it. But don’t worry, the 80-year-old doctor who penned an article in 2012 saying that the benefits of gain-of-function outweigh the risk of pandemic is still on CNN every day to reassure us that if only we can get to the point where babies are vaccinated this all goes away! (Sorry Dr. Brilliant. Your approach to eradicating smallpox is lost on this quack. No point in reasoning with Lord Fauci!)

640K Americans died, many early on in the pandemic after COVID-19 positive seniors in at least four states were sent into the nursing homes. Was it unknown to the medical community that congregate care settings are a horrible place to be during a flu season, let alone a pandemic? You bet it was known. But they were likely older more conservative people who might have voted for Trump so the Democrat governors got sneaky with it and played dumb. Nothing to see here — Biden administration has dropped the investigation!

Oh, but it gets better. Millions of Americans went to testing centers, instead of doctor’s offices, and when they did call their doctors after testing positive they were told not to come in — just stay at home and go to the hospital if the hypoxia sets in and the lips start going blue!

When patients left to their own devices at home arrived at the hospital they received about as much intervention, apart from the oxygen mask, that a child with croup would get — not the “right to try”/compassionate care standards a novel pathogen already known to have a high mortality rate among people who are 40+ years old should receive. So what happened to all those monoclonal antibodies. Well, they were set aside gathering dust, reserved for healthcare workers, presidents and others who were smart enough to ask. But the pregnant women who died after giving birth? Oh well. No Regeneron for them!

And you know, there was absolutely no conflict of interest either if you set aside the fact that hospitals got $13K for diagnosing a COVID-19 patient fresh off an ambulance for a broken hip — and $39K for patients on ventilators (of which only about 20% survived).

No it’s not a “holocaust”. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 pandemic will go down in history as America’s most shameful public health responses — at least until the next time. And there will be another pandemic. Just ask Bill Gates. He’s already said it, just like he predicted this current pandemic. But never fear, the 80-year-old doctor who’s claim to fame was making HIV patients sick with his many 1980s-era vaccine failures penned an article in 2012 saying that the benefits of gain-of-function research outweigh the risk of pandemic. The good doctor is still on CNN every day to reassure us that if only we can get to the point where babies are vaccinated this all goes away! (Sorry Dr. Brilliant. Your approach to eradicating smallpox is lost on Lord Fauci!)

No it has no truth. Survival of the fittest, or natural selection, would demand that no vaccines would be given to anyone and only those whose genetics could withstand the disease would be allowed to survive.

But, this is a potentially a human engineered disease potentially to enrich some few greedy humans through a “solution” that they’ve been investigating since at least 1990, but they never had somewhere to test it.

NOTE: They have been trying to find a way to cut the time to develop conventional vaccines (from dead virus) maybe to serve people, but more likely imho so that the “researchers” can gain the financial recompense faster aka “get rich quick”.

Welcome to the alpha test.

Time will tell. There are sites where those who are vaccine injured with heart attacks, cardiac infections, severe neurological damage, strokes, brain bleeds, etc., are telling their stores in videos. If the numbers continue to increase it will become very apparent that taking an unproved (over time) vaccine is similar to playing Russian Roulette.

There is no guarantee, nor are there ANY parties in this entire charade responsible criminally, or financially for any vaccine injuries.

But boy oh boy are they going to be willing, for a price, to treat those vaccine injuries? You bet! /sarcasm

I’ll hedge my bets and wait until the current alpha testing period is over.

IRRESPONSIBLE, FALSE & DANGEROUS INFO you’re pushing!

IVERMECTIN is a CATTLE & LIVESTOCK DWORMER, NOT a Covid treatment… btw, there is already one of those down at your local Walgreens, CVS, even Walmart pharmacy in the form of 2 vaccines being given for FREE…. that has been taken by BILLIONS for almost a year that has been PROVEN to work with little to no side effects – as compared to those of Covid = DEATH. Have a little common sense people

Right… and tell that to all those that got the mandatory vaccines (thru the school system to boot) for smallpox & polio (myself included) – which resulted in their complete demise & obliteration in society here in the modern world…
Then again, that was at least until the anti-vaxxers started in & started up localized epidemics of measles again. See any correlation yet?
It’s a good thing you don’t or didn’t obviously get vaccinated yourself for Covid… eventually you’ll end up hospitalized (& as all do, wishing you had) & nature will have succeeded once again at thinning out the over-population by survival of the fittest – in this case the fittest being those intelligent enough to get properly vaccinated.

I love reading your answers, Gemma. I wish my brother will talk to you soon. He is in a calm place now which I guess he would love to have your company to share. He believed exactly like you. He trotted down so happily to get his Pfizer jab at 11 am on 21 May. At 12.53 am on 22 May, less than 14 hours after his first happy jab, he was called by his creator with cremation done on 26 May. His autopsy is still a highly secretive paper to date. My brother Richard will dearly love to have your company because he believed in free jabs to save the world.

Ivermectin is an FDA approved DEWORMER FOR CATTLE & LIVESTOCK… Good luck with that bc it sure does sound like a better way to avoid getting Covid vs an FDA approved & FREE vaccine method ofm2 shots that MILLIONS of people worldwide have already proven to work – across the board. Bit by all means, go take a LIVESTOCK DEWORMER… (being used against recommendations & majir WARNINGS IN 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES WITH NO VACCINES), and then maybe that injection of bleach…
Are you freakn’ kidding me? The clues are more than just a warning on the wall

more lies Gemma ivermectin has been used on humans for more than 40 years worldwide billions of doses have been given ……The medication receive the Nobel peace prize for use in humans……..what you’re doing is lying to people which makes you personally responsible for harm that takes place to people ……these are safe medications….. your despicable and disgusting person for doing this stop telling lies why don’t you do some research.
Gemma I’m going to challenge you to something very basic and a kindergarten or could do go online right now google ivermectin human doses and read up on the medication it’s a human medication stop repeating lies that it’s only given for animals……
There’s gonna be a day when you’re going to need these medications you’re gonna lie right there in the bed Gemma and you’re gonna take your last breath……

This article is interesting but it is lacking quite a lot of data. Correlation does not imply causation. I want more information before I conclude that country A, which takes drug X, has fewer cases of Covid because of that drug. What is their population spread? What other factors are similar and different?

For example: A very large majority of people that I know who have died have done so in a hospital bed, therefore, hospital beds increase an individual’s chance of dying, right?

Also, the graphs are too difficult to read. It would be nice to have a clickable, high resolution file.

FYI. DEHLI IS A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY WITH NO VACCINE desperately grasping for ANY sign of hope – incl an FDA approved DEWORMER FOR CATTLE & LIVESTOCK… NOT SMART, esp in a Country that offers an approved vaccine that works… FOR FREE. Billions across the world have gotten vaccinated with little to NO SIDE EFFECTS THAT IS PROVEN TO WORK… but by all means, go take a LIVESTOCK DEWORMER that will also land you in the hospital & take care away from the CHILDREN not yet approved to get vaccinated

Here’s food for thought… if you don’t live in a 3rd worls country and have an actually FDA approved drug/ vaccine availabe (NOTE – which also FREE)… GO GET THE VACCINE!!! The blatent STUPIDITY of people, esp in the US is totally mind staggering!
If you don’t want to get Covid, go to any major chain pharmacy and get your 2 shots… not 1, but the required TWO!
Otherwise, to be perfectly frank – maybe you actually deserve to get sick from it bc you’re not doing yourself or anyone else any favors by not getting vaccinated – and espby NOT taking a dewormer made for LIVESTOCK! PERIOD.

All I can say is Ivermectin worked for me to lessen Covid and protected my wife and adult son from getting seriously sick from the Covid virus. Both tested negative for the Virus after being exposed by me and both tested positive for the antigen with not realizing that they every had the virus. Say what what you want. Think what you want. Ivermectin is generic. Who wants to support studies on a generic product that is not going to line the pockets of the pharmaceutical company who supports the research.

What that journal–or that this article–doesn’t say is that the makers of Ivermectin (Merck) says that it’s not for use in humans except for two specific African parasites. If used inappropriately, side effects include shredded intestines, encephalitis, and confusion. Especially not for pregnant women since it’s passed in the milk and there are no studies on the effect on people over 65. FAFO.

https://www.merck.com/news/merck-statement-on-ivermectin-use-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/

If Merck could make billions of dollars off of a medicine they already have, wouldn’t they be yelling the loudest to use their stuff?

As of August 27, 2021 our local Public Health Department began an active campaign to suppress Ivermectin by using pharmacists to report any physician who prescribes Ivermectin for covid.

Read it yourself:

https://clark.wa.gov/media/document/103481

My relative was able to get only half of their prescription filled by a local pharmacy just before this order came out. They were told that the pharmacy would not be allowed to fill any more. When they called other pharmacies they were told that while they had the drug in stock, they would not fill any orders if it was for covid. (And btw, if the script was for a “skin condition” the quoted cost was 1/4 of what my relative was charged.)
