I am a FH squatter

The point wasn't about ivermectin really at all. The point was that the right-wing media from Fox to Infowars bigs up distrust of actual medicine so that they can sell them something else, whatever else that might be and however effective or not it might be.Lol. Media matters.
Wouldn't you be better just linking straight to the Democrat Party website?
Anyway, if we look at a slightly more respectable institution's view on it:
So one of our most esteemed research institutions has decided that, despite all the cries of "horse dewormer" from people who should really know better, there is enough promise in IVM to warrant a full RCT on it, the results of which will be interesting. Bearing in mind that the FDA called IVM the third wonder drug after penicillin and aspirin (which has also proved beneficial in small studies), I do find the current narrative that IVM will kill everyone quite bemusing. Especially given the FDA also said back then:
To make COVID properly go away we'll need both the vaccines and effective treatments, and apart from the monoclonial antibody products, we are very light on the latter at the moment. This is why I don't understand the determination of certain people - well, Democrats anyway - to slate every potential treatment that comes along, and state that it doesn't work when we haven't studied it enough to know that.
tl:dr Stop politicising a fucking pandemic you knobbers.
