Discussion of scholar papers published until June 29, 2020, on Ivermectin, and of news that we can find about its use for Covid-19. A list of clinical trials is also given. For what concerns scholar papers, we report among them a preprint posted on 10 June in MedRχiv, which concludes that Ivermectin was associated with lower mortality during treatment of Covid-19. From news, we consider in particular the case of Iquitos, capital city of the Loreto Region in Peru, where, by May 25, Covid-19 cases and deaths had dropped notably. The formulation of ivermectin used in Peru is also discussed, in particular that of the oral solution disclosed by the Peruvian Government.
