Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine whose discovery won the Nobel Prize in 2015, has proven, highly potent, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties in laboratory studies. In the past 4 months, numerous, controlled clinical trials from multiple centers and countries worldwide are reporting consistent, large improvements in COVID-19 patient outcomes when treated with ivermectin. A comprehensive scientific review of these referenced trials can be found on the Open Science Foundation pre-print server here: https://osf.io/wx3zn/
Properties of Ivermectin
Ivermectin inhibits the replication of many viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and others;
Ivermectin has potent anti-inflammatory properties with multiple mechanisms of inhibition;
Ivermectin diminishes viral load and protects against organ damage in animal models;
Ivermectin prevents transmission of COVID-19 when taken either pre- or post-exposure;
Ivermectin hastens recovery and decreases hospitalization and mortality in patients with COVID-19;
Ivermectin leads to far lower case-fatality rates in regions with widespread use.
I would like to share my personal experience with the use of Ivermectin here in Guatemala. I am not a doctor but an electronics engineer, a bit overweight 238lbs, with mild hypertension and asthma. Since the beginning of the outbreak in February and March I was looking for a way to evade the use of the local hospitals here, since our medical system is poorly build up. The first time I heard about the use of Ivermectin in humans was in Puerto Rico and Perú. Both of those countries had used ivermectin since the appearance of the findings in Australia. We prepared here in our home with everything imaginable, oxigen, oxigen generators, masks, alcohol, azitromicina, Dexametasona, Ivermectin, Zinc, Vitamin D, NAC, etc. We knew we could not rely in the local health care system. My first experience with Ivermectin was with a worker of ours who started with mild headaches, mild fever. When he lost the sense of smell and taste, we knew it was the virus, this was mid May. We applied Ivermectin with a protocol we found from a hospital in Perú. I might add, it was liquid Ivermectin for cattle. The dose is 1ml of 1% Ivermectin for each 100 pounds of weight. 2 doses, separated by a 24 hour period. I must say it was a success, within 48 hours the man was standing up again, and he was almost fine. It was an incredible event. Since then we put our complete faith in Ivermectin and the treatment with it. It is sometimes hard to source Ivermectin in pills here, so we almost always use it in liquid Form. By now I can happily say we must have treated more than 200 persons with the same protocol, some at earlier stages of the infection some at a later point. We found out that if you apply the Ivermectin at the beginning of the infection the outcome is very fast and very good. No other medicine is needed, two low doses only are necessary. My father last week, aged 80, was clinically diagnosed with Covid, we applied 1 dose of Ivermectin, and days after he was in a very healthy state. By the way, he would not want to take the second dose, he did not like it, he said. At that age they get a little bit stubborn. Now we are making voluntary Ivermectin campaigns for those people who want to stay healthy. We apply now Ivermectin in a profilactic way, one dose only. 2 months have passed and none of the ones who have taken the Ivermectin before getting sick have contracted the virus. We have formed local groups of information with other Ivermectin users. I must say, as of now for us here Ivermectin is effective and cheap. I hope this helps to stop the death of people who did not have to die out there.
