Ivermectin, some population level evidence

 Contribution: Part 119 – 2021 # 11)

Is there reason to believe that the “controversial” Covid-19 treatment, Ivermectin, might work?

BRADES, Montserrat, July 24, 2021 –  “Riddle me this, riddle me that, guess me this riddle and perhaps not”: what happened in Indonesia in June 2021? (If you guessed, effective withdrawal of Ivermectin from sale, go to the head of the class.)

The Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia, showing a “skyrocket takeoff” pattern in June 2021

This is yet another unplanned, population-scale experiment with treatments for Covid-19, this time in the world’s fourth most populous country, with 276 million people. It joins the Mexico, Peru, and India cases, as TMR has already discussed.  As Trial Site News reports[1]:

“With the findings at Australia’s University of Monash that ivermectin absolutely inhibited SARS-CoV-2 in a lab came a widespread interest in this drug as a possible repurposed drug candidate to target the coronavirus . . . .

A seasoned entrepreneur and philanthropist Mr. Haryoseno ran a company in Jakarta called Harsen Laboratories. By last summer, the shrewd businessman saw the potential with ivermectin and made the investments to essentially corner the market in Indonesia with Ivermax 12 . . . . Harsen Laboratories ivermectin-based Ivermax 12 product was available at local pharmacies at the price point of $18 for a strip of 10 tablets, and sales continued to soar . . . . With support from high-level contacts in government, he continued to receive support selling the product for COVID-19 off-label even though it was only indicated for the parasite-borne disease . . . .

In June of this year, BPOM, the drug regulatory agency there, announced that ivermectin would be used for COVID-19 and that the license would be redirected to the [state-owned] company TrialSite reported on recentlyPT Indofarma.”

So what? Stopping a borderline illegal operation is normal, isn’t it? Not quite; so, this:

“BPOM . . . ban[ned] any and all off-label distribution via this channel. The only thing that ivermectin would be used for is large planned clinical trials with tens of thousands of participants as needed. These, of course, would take time and effort, and hence any results would be half a year to a year away.

But what the state didn’t expect was the importance of that know-how, network, and wherewithal needed for a successful ivermectin production supply chain. From the sourcing of main inputs to supplies to manufacturing, the new company was out of its element. Hence the supply of ivermectin essentially dried up.”

Now, we have context for a skyrocketing surge in cases. And of course, the state is demanding the businessman/philanthropist’s stocks of raw materials and he faces threats of up to ten years in gaol and US$ 70,000 in fines.

But, correlation is not causation!

Impact of Ivermectin in Slovakia

True, but causes and effects tend to move together and there is reason to believe that Ivermectin helps to block the multiplication of the virus behind Covid-19 in the body. That is certainly the causal explanation to beat, given the patterns that have cropped up in several countries.

For instance, we can clearly see a related trend line for Slovakia.[2]

This is similar to what happened in several states of India, e.g. here, Dehli:

Impact of Ivermectin in Delhi, India

Other Indian cases – Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Uttarakhand – fit with the Dehli pattern:

There is a clear pattern that widespread availability and use of Ivermectin leads to a downturn of Covid-19. [3] It is also a Nobel Prize-winning, exceptionally safe drug.  Where, the actual protocols on the table,[4] contrary to certain objections, are similar to long established dosages. (No, medically unsupervised people foolishly trying to take horse-size doses don’t count.[5])

That sort of evidence begins to challenge dismissive arguments.  Of course, as a matter of logic, observed evidence does not by itself prove a candidate explanation, but it provides empirical support. Here, arguably convincingly.

So, once serious possible treatments are on the table, the seemingly reasonable basis to coerce or pressure or manipulate people into taking vaccines that have been showing signs of significant, serious [though yes, relatively “uncommon”] risks becomes far shakier.  Local officials, regional Governments, and the like would therefore be well advised to take due note, given the prohibitions in the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) Article 7, “ no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.” 

This is backed up by the details in the Nuremberg Code issued by the Courts that tried Nazi war criminals including doctors who horribly abused prisoners and Concentration Camp inmates.[6]

(If you think the vaccines are not experimental, emergency/contingency authorised experimental treatments, ponder why it is only now that we are publicly hearing of the need for a third jab because antibody protection was found to be waning after several months. Israel seems to have just started, the UK is going for 32 million 3rd doses [so, AstraZeneca is involved], and Pfizer and Moderna have pushed for a 3rd dose.)

We need to have a fresh conversation.

Dosage is proportional to weight. See linked details. This is for information only given objections raised, self-dosing with medications is potentially dangerous.
