Whilst some states did allow Ivermectin use for Covid, most did not, and national bodies did not. Delhi did not.At the height of the death toll, they reversed course and allowed Ivermectin. After that, deaths declined steeply.(2) Some states of India use Ivermectin for Covid, but national body decided not to include it (Oct 23, 2020)India Health Ministry has decided not to include ivermectin for Covid-19 (Oct 23) drug ivermectin not to be included for Covid-19 treatment protocol: Health MinistryA government official said, "Many states, for example--Uttar Pradesh, are utilising the drug as off label for treatment purpose and also for prophylaxis use against Covid-19.ANI October 23, 2020, 06:54 ISTAnti-parasitic drug ivermectin not to be included for Covid-19 treatment protocol: Health MinistryNew Delhi:The Union Health Ministry has decided not to include ivermectin medicine (anti-parasitic drug) in the National Clinical Management Protocol for Covid-19 for the treatment of virus-infected patients.The move comes after the Central government's National Task Force for Covid-19 and the health ministry's Joint Monitoring Group (JGM) chaired a meeting on Thursday to discuss if the anti-parasitic drug should be included in the national treatment guidelines or not.A government official said, "Many states, for example--Uttar Pradesh, are utilising the drug as off label for treatment purpose and also for prophylaxis use against Covid-19. Now, it has been decided not to recommend ivermectin medicine in the National Clinical Management Protocol for Covid-19 as there is not enough safety and efficacy evidence as per the randomised trials held across the world."Ivermectin medicine is an inexpensive and safe drug that is used for the treatment of intestinational parasites and scabies.In the fight against Covid-19, the Union Health Ministry has approved the use of several drugs in the treatment of coronavirus with subject to conditions in the Clinical Management Protocol for Covid-19.The Central government has already recommended the use of--remdesivir under "investigational therapies" only for restricted emergency use in moderate Covid-19 cases. Another drug called--tocilizumab is being used as off-label for the treatment of Covid patients. Meanwhile, anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is being utilised in patients during the initial stage of infection.(3) Early treatment could have prevented up to 85% of COVID-19 deaths Scrubs Stats on Vaccine-Related Deathsby Dr. Joseph MercolaMay 18, 2021According to Dr. Peter McCullough, vice chief of internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and known for being one of the top five most-published medical researchers in the United States, COVID-19 vaccines are killing "huge numbers" of people and the government is simply ignoring it.In a video interview with investigative journalist and founder of Liberty Sentinel, Alex Newman, McCullough says the U.S. government, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and health agencies around the world have all committed to vaccinating the global population while sitting on data showing the COVID-19 "vaccines" are turning out to be the most lethal vaccines ever created.Safe Treatments Suppressed in Favor of Dangerous ‘Vaccines’McCullough, who also has a master’s degree in public health, has provided testimony in three different Senate hearings, sharing the treatments he used to help patients recover from COVID-19 and avoid hospitalization. He summarizes his protocol in the interview.These strategies are also detailed in "Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 Infection," published in the January 2021 issue of the American Journal of Medicine.1 He was also a consulting editor of "A Guide to Home-Based COVID Treatment."2During a recent Texas state Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing, McCullough noted that, according to available data, early treatment could have prevented up to 85% of COVID-19 deaths.3 Early at-home treatment also minimizes the spread, as the amount of time you’re infectious can be reduced from two weeks to about four days.Yet, despite being inexpensive and readily available, early treatments have all been censored and suppressed, apparently in order to secure this global mass vaccination campaign. In fact, as McCullough notes, there’s been no clarified guidance on COVID treatment at all, not even hospital protocols.The entire focus of our health agencies has been on masking, lockdowns and waiting for a gene therapy "vaccine." The results have been devastating. Five months into the mass vaccination campaign, more than 10,000 in the U.S. and European Union have already died after getting the shots. Any other vaccine would have been pulled from the market by now.(4) "Never never before have we [doctors] become complicit in causing so much harm" - Dr. Tess Lawrie Good News on Ivermectinby Dr. Joseph MercolaMay 21, 2021When it comes to the treatment of COVID-19, many Western nations have been hobbled by the politicization of medicine. Throughout 2020, media and many public health experts warned against the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), despite the fact that many practicing doctors were praising its ability to save patients. Most have been silenced through online censorship. Some even lost their jobs for the "sin" of publicly sharing their successes with the drug.Another decades-old antiparasitic drug that may be even more useful than HCQ is ivermectin. Like HCQ, ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential drugs, but its benefits are also being ignored by public health officials and buried by mainstream media.Ivermectin is a heartworm medication that has been shown to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication in vitro.1 In the U.S., the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) has been calling for widespread adoption of Ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and for the treatment of all phases of COVID-19.2,3In the video above {at link above}, Dr. John Campbell interviews Dr. Tess Lawrie about the drug and its use against COVID-19. Lawrie is a medical doctor and Ph.D. researcher who has done a lot of work in South Africa.She’s also the director of Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd.,4 which is based in the U.K., and she helped organize the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel5 and the International Ivermectin for COVID Conference, held April 24, 2021.Ironically, as a consultant to the World Health Organization and many other public health organizations, her largest clients are the very ones who are now actively suppressing the use of this drug. ...What makes ivermectin particularly useful in COVID-19 is the fact that it works both in the initial viral phase of the illness, when antivirals are required, as well as the inflammatory stage, when the viral load drops off and anti-inflammatories become necessary.According to Dr. Surya Kant, a medical doctor in India who has written a white paper6 on ivermectin, the drug reduces replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by several thousand times.7 Kant’s paper led several Indian provinces to start using ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and as treatment for COVID-19 in the summer of 2020.8 ...During the conference, Lawrie proposed that doctors around the world join together to form a new people-centered World Health Organization. "Never before has our role as doctors been so important because never before have we become complicit in causing so much harm," she said.(5) India should incorporate Ivermectin into national practice guidelines (May 11) affordable drugs could rapidly reduce Covid-19 cases and deaths in IndiaMay 11, 2021, 12:15 PM ISTVikas P. Sukhatme and Vidula V. SukhatmeThe COVID-19 humanitarian calamity unfolding in India is on a scale not seen in this pandemic. This is an extraordinary situation – and it may benefit from an extraordinary response.There exist affordable, readily available and minimally toxic drugs approved for non-COVID-19 use which show remarkable promise in preventing or treating the new coronavirus. Deploying these drugs in India is likely to rapidly reduce the number of COVID-19 patients, reduce the number requiring hospitalization, supplemental oxygen and intensive care and improve outcomes in hospitalized patients.Some of these drugs are being tested in large-scale randomized clinical trials in the US and abroad but in most cases, definitive efficacy data is pending. With the current COVID-19 situation in India, we do not have time to wait for results of these studies. Importantly, currently available safety and outcomes data on these drugs is strong enough that it is time to incorporate them into national practice guidelines. Indian authorities should issue such guidelines on the most promising drugs for each stage of COVID-19. By so doing, physicians will be encouraged to use these interventions. The resulting real world data from a few healthcare settings in select cities should be tracked in real time and guidelines suitably revised. If such measures were adopted, we could see effects in 3-4 weeks. This strategy might be unusual but it is not unheard of: France has the Temporary Recommendation for Use, a "regulatory instrument which aims to allow, on a temporary basis, the use of a medicinal product to allow its effectiveness to be evaluated on the basis of its use."The choice of drugs is critical. We have worked closely with personnel at the Food and Drug Administration and have connected with the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health to evaluate the merits of repurposed drugs. Based on a mechanistic rationale, data in animal models, human retrospective analyses, clinical trials (some randomized, others not) and anecdotal human data, we created a prioritized list of interventions that hold the greatest promise and that could be deployed at scale. For instance, there is strong data from a randomized trial and a real-world study that administering fluvoxamine sharply reduces the need for hospitalization in COVID-19 outpatients. Moreover, anecdotal unpublished data in over 400 acutely ill COVID-19 patients from several community practitioners suggests that administering fluvoxamine and ivermectin together may be even more efficacious.Intervention as early as possible after symptom onset is key. Ivermectin is already listed as a "MAY DO" on the ICMR and Indian government guidelines for treatment of acute mild COVID-19 and we suggest that fluvoxamine be added in this category. Also, ivermectin in the prophylactic setting merits serious consideration. For the hospitalized, there are treatments currently used for other conditions that might reduce the need for ventilator support and lower the risk of death. These include inhaled adenosine, cyproheptadine and dipyridamole. For ideas for which there is rather limited human data, the government should offer pre-approved pilot protocols and funding for rapid implementation in select centers rather than issue a recommendation for use.To be clear, it would be ideal to pursue large clinical trials to test the efficacy of all promising interventions. A randomized adaptive design could efficiently sift through the many possibilities. It may be possible to rapidly set up parallel protocols in India if government authorities can expedite the regulatory process and offer funding. US trial investigators can be persuaded to provide protocols and web-based data collection tools.We hope that the Indian government will take advantage of repurposed drug research and use temporary use authorizations or guidelines to rapidly promote the most promising therapies at a national level while in parallel aggressively encourage pilot studies and large-scale clinical trials with shovel-ready protocols and funding. Given the current situation, India has little to lose in piloting these approaches: the potential gains could benefit not just the country but the world.The views presented here reflect those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the institutions to which they are affiliated. ==Vikas P.

The 15-page article chronicles the gargantuan struggle being waged by frontline doctors on all continents to get ivermectin approved as a Covid-19 treatment, as well as the tireless efforts by reporters, media outlets and social media companies to thwart them.Because of ivermectin, Capuzzo says, there are "hundreds of thousands, actually millions, of people around the world, from Uttar Pradesh in India to Peru to Brazil, who are living and not dying." Yet media outlets have done all they can to "debunk" the notion that ivermectin may serve as an effective, easily accessible and affordable treatment for Covid-19. They have parroted the arguments laid out by health regulators around the world that there just isn't enough evidence to justify its use.For his part, Capuzzo, as a reporter, "saw with [his] own eyes the other side [of the story]" that has gone unreported, of the many patients in the US whose lives have been saved by ivermectin and of five of the doctors that have led the battle to save lives around the world, Paul Marik, Umberto Meduri, José Iglesias, Pierre Kory and Joe Varon. These are all highly decorated doctors. Through their leadership of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance, they have already enhanced our treatment of Covid-19 by discovering and promoting the use of Corticoid steroids against the virus. But their calls for ivermectin to also be used have met with a wall of resistance from healthcare regulators and a wall of silence from media outlets."I really wish the world could see both sides," Capuzzo laments. But unfortunately most reporters are not interested in telling the other side of the story. Even if they were, their publishers would probably refuse to publish it.That may explain why Capuzzo, a six-time Pulitzer-nominated journalist best known for his New York Times-bestselling nonfiction books Close to Shore and Murder Room, ended up publishing his article on ivermectin in Mountain Home, a monthly local magazine for the of the Pennsylvania mountains and New York Finger Lakes region, of which Capuzzo's wife is the editor. It's also the reason why I decided to dedicate today's post to Capuzzo's article. Put simply, as many people as possible –particularly journalists — need to read his story.As Capuzzo himself says, "I don't know of a bigger story in the world."Total News BlackoutOn December 8 2020, FLCCC member Dr Pierre Kory gave nine minutes of impassioned testimony to the US Homeland Security Committee Meeting on the potent anti-viral, anti-inflammatory benefits of ivermectin. A total of 9 million people (myself included) saw the video on YouTube before it was taken down by YouTube's owner, Google. As Capuzzo exhaustively lays out, both traditional and social media have gone to extraordinary lengths to keep people in the dark about ivermectin. So effective has this been that even in some of the countries that have benefited most from its use (such as Mexico and Argentina) many people are completely unaware of its existence. And this is no surprise given how little information is actually seeping out into the public arena.A news blackout by the world's leading media came down on Ivermectin like an iron curtain. Reporters who trumpeted the COVID-19 terror in India and Brazil didn't report that Ivermectin was crushing the P-1 variant in the Brazilian rain forest and killing COVID-19 and all variants in India. That Ivermectin was saving tens of thousands of lives in South America wasn't news, but mocking the continent's peasants for taking horse paste was. Journalists denied the world knowledge of the most effective life-saving therapies in the pandemic, Kory said, especially among the elderly, people of color, and the poor, while wringing their hands at the tragedy of their disparate rates of death.Three days after Kory's testimony, an Associated Press "fact-check reporter" interviewed Kory "for twenty minutes in which I recounted all of the existing trials evidence (over fifteen randomized and multiple observational trials) all showing dramatic benefits of Ivermectin," he said. Then she wrote: "AP'S ASSESSMENT: False. There's no evidence Ivermectin has been proven a safe or effective treatment against COVID-19."Like many critics, she didn't explore the Ivermectin data or evidence in any detail, but merely dismissed its "insufficient evidence," quoting instead the lack of a recommendation by the NIH or WHO. To describe the real evidence in any detail would put the AP and public health agencies in the difficult position of explaining how the lives of thousands of poor people in developing countries don't count in these matters.Not just in media but in social media, Ivermectin has inspired a strange new form of Western and pharmaceutical imperialism. On January 12, 2021, the Brazilian Ministry of Health tweeted to its 1.2 million followers not to wait with COVID-19 until it's too late but "go to a Health Unit and request early treatment," only to have Twitter take down the official public health pronouncement of the sovereign fifth largest nation in the world for "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information." (Early treatment is code for Ivermectin.) On January 31, the Slovak Ministry of Health announced its decision on Facebook to allow use of Ivermectin, causing Facebook to take down that post and removed the entire page it was on, the Ivermectin for MDs Team, with 10,200 members from more than 100 countries.In Argentina, Professor and doctor Hector Carvallo, whose prophylactic studies are renowned by other researchers, says all his scientific documentation for Ivermectin is quickly scrubbed from the Internet. "I am afraid," he wrote to Marik and his colleagues, "we have affected the most sensitive organ on humans: the wallet…" As Kory's testimony was climbing toward nine million views, YouTube, owned by Google, erased his official Senate testimony, saying it endangered the community. Kory's biggest voice was silenced."The Most Powerful Entity on Earth"Malcom X once called the media "the most powerful entity on the earth." They have, he said, "the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of masses". Today, that power is now infused with the power of the world's biggest tech and social media companies. Together social and traditional media have the power to make a medicine that has saved possibly millions of lives during the current pandemic disappear from the conversation. When it is covered, it's almost always in a negative light. Some media organizations, including the NY Times, have even prefaced mention of the word "ivermectin" — a medicine that has done so much good over its 40-year lifespan that its creators were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015 — with the word "controversial."Undeterred, many front-line doctors have tried to persuade their respective health regulators of the unparalleled efficacy and safety of ivermectin as a covid treatment. They include Dr. Tess Lawrie, a prominent independent medical researcher who, as Capuzzo reports, evaluates the safety and efficacy of drugs for the WHO and the National Health Service to set international clinical practice guidelines:"[She] read all twenty-seven of the Ivermectin studies Kory cited. The resulting evidence is consistent and unequivocal," she announced, and sent a rapid meta-analysis, an epidemiolocal statistical multi-study review considered the highest form of medical evidence, to the director of the NHS, members of parliament, and a video to Prime Minister Boris Johnson with "the good news… that we now have solid evidence of an effective treatment for COVID-19…" and Ivermectin should immediately "be adopted globally and systematically for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19."Ignored by British leaders and media, Lawrie convened the day-long streaming BIRD conference—British Ivermectin Recommendation Development—with more than sixty researchers and doctors from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland, Belgium, Argentina, South Africa, Botswana, Nigeria, Australia, and Japan. They evaluated the drug using the full "evidence-to-decision framework" that is "the gold standard tool for developing clinical practice guidelines" used by the WHO, and reached the conclusion that Ivermectin should blanket the world."Most of all you can trust me because I am also a medical doctor, first and foremost," Lawrie told the prime minster, "with a moral duty to help people, to do no harm, and to save lives. Please may we start saving lives now." She heard nothing back.Ivermectin's benefits were also corroborated by Dr. Andrew Hill, a renowned University of Liverpool pharmacologist and independent medical researcher, and the senior World Health Organization/UNITAID investigator of potential treatments for COVID-19. Hill's team of twenty-three researchers in twenty-three countries had reported that, after nine months of looking for a COVID-19 treatment and finding nothing but failures like Remdesivir— "we kissed a lot of frogs"— Ivermectin was the only thing that worked against COVID-19, and its safety and efficacy were astonishing—"blindingly positive," Hill said, and "transformative." Ivermectin, the WHO researcher concluded, reduced COVID-19 mortality by 81 percent.Why All the Foot Dragging?Yet most health regulators and governments continue to drag their feet. More evidence is needed, they say. All the while, doctors in most countries around the world have no early outpatient medicines to draw upon in their struggle against the worst pandemic in century. Drawing on his own experience, Capuzzo describes the absence of treatments for COVID-19 as a global crisis:When my daughter Grace, a vice president at a New York advertising agency, came down with COVID-19 recently, she was quarantined in a "COVID hotel" in Times Square with homeless people and quarantining travelers. The locks on her room door were removed. Nurses prowled the halls to keep her in her room and wake her up every night to check her vitals—not to treat her, because there is no approved treatment for COVID-19; only, if her oxygen plummeted, to move her to the hospital, where there is only a single eective approved treatment for COVID-19, steroids that may keep the lungs from failing.There are three possible explanations for health regulators' refusal to allow the use of a highly promising, well-tolerated off-label medicine such as ivermectin:As a generic, ivermectin is cheap and widely available, which means there would be a lot less money to be made by Big Pharma if it became the go-to early-stage treatment against covid.Other pharmaceutical companies are developing their own novel treatments for Covid-19 which would have to compete directly with ivermectin. They include ivermectin's original manufacturer, Merck, which has an antiviral compound, molnupiravir, in Phase 3 clinical trials for COVID-19. That might explain the company's recent statement claiming that there is "no scientific basis whatsoever for a potential therapeutic effect of ivermectin against COVID-19.If approved as a covid-19 treatment, ivermectin could even threaten the emergency use authorisation granted to covid-19 vaccines. One of the basic conditions for the emergency use authorisation granted to the vaccines currently being used against covid is that there are no alternative treatments available for the disease. As such, if ivermectin or some other promising medicine such as fluvoxamine were approved as an effective early treatment for Covid-19, the vaccines could be stripped of authorisation.This may explain why affordable, readily available and minimally toxic drugs are not repurposed for use against Covid despite the growing mountains of evidence supporting their efficacy.Ivermectin has already been approved as a covid-19 treatment in more than 20 countries. They include Mexico where the mayor of Mexico City, Claudia Scheinbaum, recently said that the medicine had reduced hospitalisations by as much as 76%. As of last week, 135,000 of the city's residents had been treated with the medicine. The government of India — the world's second most populous country and one of the world's biggest manufacturers of medicines — has also recommended the use of ivermectin as an early outpatient treatment against covid-19, in direct contravention of WHO's own advice.Dr Vikas P. Sukhatme, the dean of Emory School of Medicine, recently wrote in a column for the Times of India that deploying drugs such as ivermectin and fluvoxamine in India is likely to "rapidly reduce the number of COVID-19 patients, reduce the number requiring hospitalization, supplemental oxygen and intensive care and improve outcomes in hospitalized patients."Four weeks after the government included ivermectin and budesonide among its early treatment guidelines, the country has recorded its lowest case count in 40 days.In many of India's regions the case numbers are plunging in almost vertical fashion. In the capital Delhi, as in Mexico City, hospitalisations have plummeted. In the space of 10 days ICU occupancy fell from 99% to 70%. Deaths are also falling. The test positivity ratio slumped from 35% to 5% in just one month.One of the outliers of this trend is the state of Tamil Nadu, where cases are still rising steeply. This may have something to do with the fact that the state's newly elected governor, MK Stalin, decided to exclude ivermectin from the region's treatment protocol in favor of Remdesivir. The result? Soaring cases. Late last week, Stalin reversed course once again and readopted ivermectin.For the moment deaths in India remain extremely high. And there are concerns that the numbers are being under-reported. Yet they may also begin to fall in the coming days. In all of the countries that have used ivermectin widely, fatalities are the last thing to fall, after case numbers and hospitalizations. Of course, there's no way of definitively proving that these rapid falloffs are due to the use of ivermectin. Correlation, even as consistent as this, is not causation. Other factors such as strict lockdowns and travel restrictions no doubt also play a part.But a clear pattern across nations and territories has formed that strongly supports ivermectin's purported efficacy. And that efficacy has been amply demonstrated in three meta-analyses.India's decision to adopt ivermectin, including as a prophylaxis in some states, is already a potential game-changer. As I wrote three weeks ago, if case numbers, hospitalizations and fatalities fall in India as precipitously as they have in other countries that have adopted ivermectin, it could even become a watershed moment. But for that to happen, the news must reach enough eyes and ears. And for that to happen, reporters must, as Capuzzo says, begin to do their job and report both sides of this vital story.This entry was posted in Guest Post on May 25, 2021 by Nick Corbishley.(7) COVID Deaths Plunge after Mexico & Peru introduce IvermectinAuthorities create home-treatment-kit for 22 million-strong population Deaths Plunge After Major World City Introduces IvermectinAuthorities create home-treatment-kit for 22 million-strong populationWND May 31; Global Research June 1, 2021A citywide initiative in Mexico City to prescribe ivermectin to COVID-19 patients resulted in a plunge in hospitalizations and deaths, two studies found.Hospitalizations were down by as much as 76%, according to research by the Mexican Digital Agency for Public Innovation, Mexico's Ministry of Health and the Mexican Social Security Institute, according to a TrialSiteNews report highlighted by LifeSiteNews.Earlier this month, as WND reported, a significant decrease in cases in India coincided with the national health ministry's promotion of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine treatments.In Mexico City, after a spike in cases in December, the city's Ministry of Health created a home-treatment kit for residents. The city's metro population is 22 million.At the time, the head of the Mexico City Ministry of Health, Oliva López, said told reporters her agency had determined "that there is enough evidence to use in people positive for SARS-CoV-2, even without symptoms, some drugs such as ivermectin and azithromycin."Beginning Dec. 29, people who tested positive for COVID from an antigen test and who were experiencing at least mild symptoms began receiving one of the government's ivermectin-based treatment kits, TrialSiteNews reported.The Mexican government then began a study to track the impact of the early treatment of COVID with ivermectin on the city's population.The study tracked 200,000 people, dividing in two cohorts — those who received ivermectin and those who did not.Through a phone-call-based monitoring system and hospital data on admissions for COVID-19, the researchers found a reduction of between 52% and 76% in hospitalizations for those who took ivermectin compared to those who did not.The government's findings were corroborated by Dr. Juan J. Chamie-Quintero, a senior data analyst at private Colombian university EAFIT.He found that excess deaths in the city dropped sharply only a few weeks after the ivermectin treatments began.Chamie-Quintero also conducted a study in Peru, where the government approved ivermectin as a treatment for the virus in May 2020.In the 24 Peruvian states that adopted early use of ivermectin treatment, excess deaths plummeted on average by 59% just 30 days after the peak death rate. And it had dropped 75% after 45 days in those over 60 years old.'Large, statistically significant reductions in mortality'Worldwide, more than 50 peer-reviewed studies have shown the effectiveness of ivermectin as a treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19.A study by the American Journal of Therapeutics that analyzed 18 randomized controlled treatment trials found ivermectin elicited "large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance" in COVID patients.The study concluded that "the many examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified."In February, a peer-reviewed study found that invermectin reduces coronavirus infections, hospitalizations and deaths by about 75%.Ivermectin, in more than 30 trials around the world, causes "repeated, consistent, large magnitude improvements in clinical outcomes' at all stages of the disease," according to the study, which was published in the U.S. journal Frontiers of Pharmacology.The evidence is so strong, the researchers believe, the anti-parasitic drug should become a standard therapy everywhere, hastening global recovery."The data is overwhelming – we are in a pandemic, and this is an incredibly effective way to combat it. If we use ivermectin widely, our societies can open up," said study co-author Professor Paul Marik, director of emergency and pulmonary care at Eastern Virginia Medical School.A previous study by Professor Andrew Hill of Liverpool University also found ivermectin cuts death rates by about 75%.'Inaction in front of mounting evidence'Dr. Pierre Kory, the chief medical officer of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, is known for his congressional testimony about the effectiveness of ivermectin. In a live Zoom conference May 13, he showed the promising data from various states in India in the two weeks after ivermectin was promoted.See Kory's presentation: a Senate hearing in December, Kory presented evidence that ivermectin prevents infection and saves lives."Although we, like many, are extremely encouraged by the apparent successes in developing effective vaccines, we also are dismayed at the near complete absence of guidance and research on effective early, at-home, or preventative treatment options apart from vaccines, a reality we find unconscionable," he said in his statement.Kory said he and his colleagues are "worried that if our call to action is not followed through, confidence in our health care leaders and agencies will be irreparably tarnished.""Inaction in front of mounting evidence of safety and effectiveness during a catastrophic pandemic may also compromise widespread vaccination support," he warned."We will look back to the impact that actions versus inaction had on the U.S. and the globe two months from now," Kory said. "If we do nothing, the present trend will continue. History will judge."== Peru, Ivermectin cut covid deaths by 75% in 6 weeks: cheap, safe and quite ignored ...(8) COVID cases and deaths drop in India & Mexico with Ivermectin useDr. Pierre Kory video: Pierre Kory Exposed WHO's Suppression of Ivermectin. YouTube Keeps Deleting This Video.Thankfully, we have the video preserved for JD Rucker  May 31, 2021Dr. Pierre Kory Called Out the WHO for Suppressing Ivermectin. YouTube Keeps Deleting This Video.One of the most disappointing things I hear from people I like and respect is that they've received the Covid-19 "vaccine." I've been scratching my head so often lately my wife bought me dandruff shampoo. The cognitive dissonance on display is shocking as people I know who do not trust government, who allegedly read up on the many questionable characteristics and statistics associated with the "vaccines," still rushed to get their jabs.As I researched to determine if this is an insurmountable "strong delusion" placed over the masses or if it's just a man-made conspiracy, I came across a video that called out the propaganda being employed to promote the vaccines. But promoting the vaccines is one thing. "Debunking" effective early treatments of the disease, including Ivermectin, goes far beyond simply promoting vaccines. It's about misleading people into believing the only way they can survive the pandemic is if they inject experimental drugs into their body.That video has since been removed from YouTube for violating "Community Guidelines."Pierre Kory Video <>The video was going viral, though there's no telling just how viral it went because by the time I was able to check on it from a news report (below) by Art Moore at WND, the video had been removed. According to the Facebook post by Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance, "Dr. Pierre Kory, Chief Medical Officer of the FLCCC Alliance, discusses the ways that public health agencies are manipulating scientific data on {the "I" medicine} for COVID-19 in order to sow uncertainty about it— and why they are doing it."Dr. Pierre Kory spoke only the truth in this video that touted statistics showing the extreme efficacy of Ivermectin when applied on a wide scale to Covid-19 cases. He discussed how death rates in a highly populated area of Mexico plummeted once they adopted Ivermectin as an early treatment, an area that has had under 2% adoption rate of the "vaccines."Then, he got into the major point of the video: The cover-up. Why have otherwise reputable science and healthcare organizations been suppressing the statistics of drugs like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine since long before the vaccines were even developed? They knew very clearly that the drugs worked wonderfully as has been exposed many times in forced releases of their internal communications, including at the World Health Organization.There appears to be a true conspiracy in play, one that has been bent on mass deployment of these "vaccines" ever since the beginning of the pandemic. Some have made valid arguments that the plans were in place before the world had even heard of Covid-19, all tied to The Great Reset from the World Economic Forum."The major action against Ivermectin was perpetrated by the World Health Organization, but they are not unique in their guilt of really distorting the science around Ivermectin," he said. ...The major action against Ivermectin was perpetrated by the World Health Organization, but they are not unique in their guilt of really distorting the science around Ivermectin.Others have speculated that Big Pharma has so much riding on the constant flow of vaccines around the world, a flow that they believe will continue for years to come in the form of "boosters" and new vaccines for different variants, that they're operating a disinformation campaign to prevent actual treatments from coming to light. This, too, may be at least partially correct, but the fact that so many in government, media, Big Tech, and academia are all involved seems to be far beyond the depths of even Big Pharma's deep pockets.At the center of all this is the World Health Organization. As Dr. Kory said, "I do want to talk about what they're doing today which is they are actually working contrary to the public interest and that needs to be called out and that's why I'm lecturing on this issue again today."Watch the video. It's over an hour but well worth understanding this cover-up:The aforementioned article at WND, reprinted below with permission, shows just how effective Ivermectin has proven to be. Why is this information being suppressed by everyone, including YouTube?Ivermectin saves lives. This has been shown to be true by people like Dr. Pierre Kory and others at Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care. Why are so many bent on suppressing this data in favor of vaccines? [...]Dr. Harvey Risch, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine, is one of many health experts who decry the politicization of COVID-19 treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine."You can hardly believe what anybody says anymore," Risch said in an interview in December with Fox News' Laura Ingraham. "We've lost 300,000 lives in the United States because our government has basic told everyone to go home, stay home, and if you can't breathe, go to the hospital."That's not a form of treatment, he said, "it's what we call therapeutic nihilism."He said the federal government, through the FDA, CDC and National Institutes of Health, have misrepresented the benefits of the drugs."These are drugs that everywhere else in the world they are being used very effectively," he said.Risch contends the COVID-19 mortality rate is five times lower in the Third World "because that's all they can afford to do.""And we're here twiddling our thumbs and telling everyone to stay home. It's absurd," he said.'The Purge' by Big Tech targets conservatives, including usJust when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.(9) India health ministry advises treatment with Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquineblob: COVID-19 cases plummet as the country turns to Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquineMay 16, 2021 (updated May 17, 2021)NEW DELHI — India has received the baton for title of COVID Capitol of the World after China, Italy and the United States held it for much of last year.The world second-most populace country after China had fewer than 138,000 total active COVID cases in early February 2021. That's the lowest figure since January 2020. India active COVID cases sit around 3.6 million today, according to the India Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Mainstream media are blaming the massive spike on a "scary, mutant variant" called B.1.617.Said media are also speculating whether or not the "vaccines" will work against the variant. Only about 2.8% of India is vaccinated. Have no fear. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are here.The India health ministry updated its guidelines on April 28 for quarantines, treating the asymptomatic and those with mild symptoms of COVID-19. The agency now says that asymptomatic patients should "consider Tab Ivermectin (200 mcg/kg once a day, to be taken empty stomach) for 3 to 5 days." Caregivers of patients in quarantine are instructed to "take Hydroxychloroquine prophylaxis as per protocol and as prescribed by the treating medical officer." See the full document here.World Health Organization, big pharma freak outThere are 292 studies (219 are peer-reviewed) proving the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine as both a treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19. Ivermectin has 93 studies (54 peer-reviewed) showing its effectiveness as treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19. Despite the now-indisputable fact that these drugs essentially kill COVID-19 within hours or days, the Bill Gates-funded World Health Organization (WHO) and big pharma are having fits over India's new guidelines and the results.WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan tweeted on May 10 that her organization recommends against the use of Ivermectin for COVID-19. She deleted the tweet shortly thereafter. Swaminathan, who happens to be Indian, cited a February press release from Merck, the company that discovered and once owned the long-expired patents on Stromectol (aka Ivermectin). The company wrote that there is "no meaningful evidence" and "no scientific basis" for using Ivermectin to treat and prevent COVID-19. Merck is one of the top donors to the CDC Foundation, as is the now-merged Pfizer/GlaxoSmithKline corporation.The Canadian Global Television Network called Ivermectin and hydrochloroquine "two drugs that conspiracy theorists say cure COVID-19 and that scientists say are useless at treating the disease." The Middle East North Africa Financial Network said there is "little evidence" of Ivermectin's effectiveness. Times of India called both drugs "dangerous."COVID cases plummeting in India last two weeksDr. Pierre Kory is the chief medical officer of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance. Mainstream media label the good doctor as "misinformation." He is best known for his Congressional testimony about Ivermectin. Dr. Kory did a live Zoom conference this week showing just how effective Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have been since India implemented the changes in its policies.{visit the link to see the graphs}Here are the data from the state of Maharashtra in the two weeks since Ivermectin.Here are the data from Delhi.The same thing happened in Mexico when it started using Ivermectin.Check out the full video {at the above link}(10) Goa offers Ivermectin to the entire adult population; Uttarkhand, Karnataka, and Uttar Pradesh follow cases falling in the parts of India that approved Ivermectin useThings are turning around in India — starting within days of increasing the use of Ivermectin again.But where is the media? Who is reporting that the turnaround in some states of India has started within a couple of weeks of the expanded use of Ivermectin — the 50 cent old drug that has been used for 3.7 billion prescriptions worldwide, given to children to treat headlice, scabies and worms and is used by the ton on cattle and sheep farms.Hallalujah? Or read and weep — how much of the ghastly debacle could have been stopped before it even started?Ivermectin starts again in IndiaIvermectin starts again in India (shaded dark grey)  @jjchamieOn April 20th, New Dehli, AIIMs reccommended Ivermectin be added to the take home care package. So people getting tested would be able to start early treatment.Cases started slowing down almost immediately.Cases of Covid in New Dehli. India.….On May 10th the Health Minister for Goa recommended the use of Ivermectin in Goa. Indeed, he offered it to the entire adult population.The next day, the WHO, ever so helpfully, warned against the use of Ivermectin in India.Goa, India. Cases of Covid, after Ivermectin introduction.By Justus R. Hope, MD, Desert ReviewJust three weeks after adding Ivermectin, Delhi now leads India out of the deadly second surge of the COVID pandemic. Cases that had peaked at 28,395 on April 20 plummeted nearly 80% to just 6,430 on May 15. Deaths peaked May 4, and now they are also down 25%.Meanwhile, three other Indian states have followed Goa's lead in adding Ivermectin: Uttarkhand, Karnataka, and Uttar Pradesh. And, as expected, they have seen a drop in new daily cases as well, with Uttar Pradesh down nearly 75% from a peak of 37,944 just four days after they began following the April 20 AIIMS guidance to just 10,505 on May 16.Sadly Tamil Nadu is going the other way, they used Ivermectin for three days, then stopped it, and bought up Remdesivir instead (a Gilead drug that costs around $3000 a patient.) Still, it's handy to have a control group.Shame the people of Tamil Nadu are part of the experiment. Hard to believe the Chief Minister in Goa is M K Stalin.Cases of Covid in Tamil Nadu, Graphed.…Justus R. Hope:Twenty thousand doses of Remdesivir cost 60 million dollars, while 20,000 doses of Ivermectin go for a few hundred. Where is a developing country getting the 60 million dollars a day to purchase the Remdesivir? Why is their leader throwing away a cheap drug, Ivermectin, that has saved lives in other countries?India started using Ivermectin back on August 8, 2020 at the peak of the first wave. It's not easy to find out when or if the use of Ivermectin slowed or stopped. Indeed it is strangely difficult to find anything on most search engines apart from fact checks that warn against the use of Ivermectin.There are claims that the use of the drug stalled in January, but very little official confirmation.Waves of Covid in IndiaFrom TwitterCould the media get the situation more wrong?Back on April 28th at the peak of new cases in India the geniuses on Business Insider said it was the perfect storm for India and blamed, among other things, the slow roll out of the vaccine.  Nameless experts even blamed Ivermectin.Experts said some doctors in India have – whether due to a lack of training or sheer desperation – tried administering medications that don't work against the virus, like ivermectin, a prescription used to treat parasitic infections."I've heard stories of people getting three, four, five, six meds prescribed to them, medications that have not been shown to be effective at all," Kuppalli said. "I think people are just grasping for straws and that just adds to the chaos and the anxiety."The message from one doctor in India:Doctors report from IndiaFrom TwitterIn Peru, Ivermectin cut covid deaths by 75% in 6 weeks: cheap, safe and quite ignoredIvermectin is a drug so useful early researchers got a Nobel Prize in Medicine for work on it. It's so well known that in the last thirty years more than 3.7 billion doses of Ivermectin have been given out. It's so safe we can use it on cats and dogs and even toddlers. It's dirt cheap and its use in Ag-science is measured in tonnes. The cost of Ivermectin is around 15c in the third world, and $50 for one round for a human in New York.  (It's a lot cheaper than a $5000 a day ICU bed.)REFERENCEPaul E Alexander, Robin Armstrong, George Fareed, Kulvinder, K. Gill, John Lotus, Ramin Oskoui, Chad Prodromos, Harvey A.
