Ivermectin was unavailable this fall and I had to switch to a different product. I checked multiple mail order animal drug outlets & my vet; none could get Ivermectin. With the WHO & CDC all screaming that humans should not use it, who is using it? The form I use is injectible, certainly not a form typically usable by humans.

If the supply of Ivermectin for humans also is in short supply, as indicated by the UK study, will we start seeing a surge of covid in some of India's states and in Japan?
Since Invermectin is no longer recommended for use to treat COVID in India because it hasn't been shown to have any beneficial effect, it's availability (or lack thereof) won't affect COVID mortality there.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and the National Task Force on Covid-19 have dropped the use of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) drugs from their revised guidelines for the treatment of the infection.
The decision was taken after experts found that these drugs have little to no effect on Covid-related mortality or clinical recovery of the patient.
“HCQ may be considered for removal from guideline, with recommendation to use with caution only in clinical trial setting (since there is some genuine uncertainty regarding the possible benefit for severe cases and in low dose),” said the document titled ‘considerations for exclusion of Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine from the clinical guidance for management of adult Covid-19 patients’.
Several clinical studies have shown the low mortality benefit for HCQ, said the document. In fact, when HCQ is administered with azithromycin, it increases the risk of adverse drug effect (ADE) in patients, experts said.
Studies also found there was no clarity on mortality benefit, no effect on length of hospital stay and recovery in case of Ivermectin.

France's medical system often cited as the shining example of the glory of socialized medicine has just canceled its order for the Merck Covid-19 treatment wonder drug after clinical trials showed it was less than 30% effective. So far the Biden administration has shown no sign of following the French decision for the multi billion dollar contract it signed with Merck.

We sure are lucky Merck canceled the testing of low cost generic Covid-19 treatment drug Ivermectin so there is one less alternative to the failed treatment. That way the expensive Merck treatment doesn't have to be effective it just has to be better than nothing.

Ivermectin in low doses administered to the severely ill doesn't save 100% of patients. Therefore it has to be banned for COVID treatment. Meanwhile the Merck miracle drug with a whole 30% effectiveness gets a huge taxpayer contract then FDA approval in that order. But don't you dare question the cozy payoff to a mega corporation.

The Merck miracle drug acts a mutagen, introducing an error into the DNA copying mechanism so the virus produces null copies that eventually overwhelm the viable ones. The problem is the same one as with Russian roulette the odds are against a fatal disaster just as they are against the mutagen producing a super bug but the consequences could be worse than the black plague. But never mind, the so-called scientists at the FDA approved it, it's worth the risk for 30% effectiveness.
