Ivermectin Useless To Fight Covid-19

Suara.com – A study of hundreds of Covid-19 patients has found that the drug ivermectin does not have the ability to fight the coronavirus and also reduces the risk of hospitalization for those who are infected. As is known, ivermectin is often considered as an alternative medicine for Covid-19.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, a study of more than 1,300 at-risk patients who visited clinics in Brazil showed that those given the drug did not experience better treatment outcomes than those given a placebo.

One of the study’s lead authors, Professor Edward Mills of Canada’s McMaster University, summed up the researchers’ findings bluntly, saying that “there is no indication that ivermectin is clinically beneficial”.

Ivermectin.
Ivermectin.

Peter Hoetz of Baylor College of Medicine, who reviewed the research, said that it “should really help stop ivermectin and doesn’t give any credibility to using it for Covid-19”.

The paper detailing the research methodology and findings has been approved for publication in a major peer-reviewed journal, and will be presented at a National Institutes of Health-sponsored forum today.

In Indonesia itself, the Main Expert Staff of the Presidential Staff Office, dr. Brian Sri Prahastuti said that the ivermectin permit has not been revoked by the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM).

“As far as I know, BPOM has not revoked the distribution permit for ivermectine as a Covid-19 drug. For IDI findings, we must first see whether there are scientific publications,” Brian said when contacted, Friday (11/2/2022).

Brian further said that until now there is no drug that can kill Covid-19. The drug used serves to shorten the illness and reduce the risk of wider transmission.

According to him, the drugs that have been circulating so far must have gone through scientific considerations.
