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, both as prophylaxis and in every stage of the disease.  Ivermectin has even proven to be effective against cancer. One can only speculate as to why the media has not picked up on this but it is becoming increasingly clear that there is big money to be lost if the public finds out.

Ask your doctor to prescribe Ivermectin. If you can’t find a doctor who will prescribe it for you, visit the FLCCC “How to get Ivermectin” website.  If none of that works, the animal version is the same drug and has been taken safely by many during this pandemic.

This page will be updated as new information comes in.

In vitro Study

This is the study that started it all back in April.  Ivermectin was found to kill "essentially all" of the virus in just 48 hours in vitro while exhibiting no toxicity to healthy cells.  The second link is some criticism of the study's dosage requirements and the authors’ response. The third is two of the lead authors’ most recent paper.

This is the group that should end it all.  The Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), is a group of prominent critical care physicians who have been treating COVID-19 patients since the pandemic began and have been earnestly searching the scientific literature for “signals of efficacy” among all the treatments being used throughout the world. They have reviewed the evidence to date and called on the NIH, FDA, CDC, WHO and other governing agencies to immediately approve ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of every stage of COVID-19.  Below is a sample of some of their work and the video of their press conference.

You are welcome. Thanks for the comment.

Much gratitude foe this. I will share this far and wide. Thank you for taking the time to make it simple to share this data. We have Dr Barody in Australia advocating for but no trials here yet :)

Liberteur said...

Happy to do it. And glad you’re getting the word out! We won’t get any help from the media, that’s for sure.

Alphonse said...

Thanks for posting some links! More eyeballs is better.

I think it's my turn to mine your blog for links. :)

Liberteur said...

Mine away Alphonse! Like you said, the more eyes the better.

Dina Q said...

OMG, wow, what a resource! Do you happen to have any insider info on why IVM is being held up?

Liberteur said...

I have no insider info but it seems pretty plain to me that it is being suppressed because there are other drugs that are more profitable.

ZsF said...

Please don't forget to update the date at the beginning of the page it's still at Saturday, August 1, 2020. The quick reader might think as a first thought that this is an old page, not updated, etc. Thank you.

Liberteur said...

Thanks ZsF! I didn’t realize I could do that.

Unknown said...

Thank you for your hard work i know because i have been doing the same thing > 80+ Ivermectin Research Files, Peer reviews and Studies. >

Please could you do me a favour and direct me to your top 10 articles, videos , files from your research? We have an activist group and would appreciate this input to share info!? Thanks in advance, Kind Regards Mark

Liberteur said...

Wow Mark, that’s quite the collection of data!
As for your request for my top 10, it would really be too hard for me to break it down like that, but anything from the FLCCC, the Andrew Hill meta analysis, and the things under the Ivermectin Resources heading would be my go to’s.

Daniel Egebjerg said...
