Ivermectin vs. COVID-19

This is a collection of links I've accumulated about the drug Ivermectin and its use against COVID-19.  This drug is safe, cheap (patent-expired), widely available, FDA approved for many uses, classified by the WHO as "essential medicine", and extremely effective against SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19.  Ivermectin has even proven to be effective against cancer. One can only speculate as to why the media has not picked up on this.

This page will be updated as new information comes in.

In vitro Study

This is the study that started it all.  Ivermectin was found to kill "essentially all" of the virus in just 48 hours in vitro.  The second link is some criticism of the study's dosage requirements and the author's response.
