Ivermectin & COVID-19: an Overview
Posted on by covexit
This is a (quick) overview of key developments relating to Ivermectin as a therapeutic for COVID-19. We will provide additional coverage and hopefully interviews in the coming weeks.
The past days have brought considerable attention to Ivermectin as a cure for COVID-19, with several Sky News Australia articles and segments devoted to a treatment protocol comprising Ivermectin, Doxycycline and Zinc – promoted by Professor Borody from Australia.

“We Know it’s Curable; It’s Easier than Treating the Flu”
No guts, no glory
Does an Australian gastro legend hold the key to curing Covid?

Professor Thom Borody isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Indeed, the world-famous gastroenterologist who teamed up with Nobel prize-winners Barry Marshall and Robin Warren to take on the medical establishment, is seen by some as a sh-tstirrer. Yet Borody’s innovative treatments have saved hundreds of thousands of lives and more than $10 billion in avoided medical costs.
So, you would think, when Borody says there is a cure for the coronavirus, the medical establishment and Australia’s political class would sit up and take notice. Yet, the fact that so far they haven’t should surprise no one. Marshall, Warren and Borody had to fight for almost two decades until the simple idea was accepted that peptic stomach ulcers were caused not by stress and spicy food but bacterial infection.
Resistance came not just from scientific sceptics but an ‘Acid Mafia’— big pharmaceutical companies who made a lot of money selling drugs under the old premise that gastric juices not helicobacter pylori were to blame. It was Borody who came up with a cheap triple therapy of low-cost antibiotics to cure ulcers, but it wasn’t until Marshall and Warren had won the Nobel prize that the Acid gang stopped attacking the innovators.
‘It just takes courage and years and years of perseverance to change paradigms,’ Borody says. The trouble is we don’t have decades. More than 300 Australians have already died of Covid-19, since Dr Kylie Wagstaff announced on 3 April that ivermectin, a drug that’s been around for almost 50 years and kills everything from head lice and scabies to the parasites that cause river blindness, also kills Sars-Cov-2 virus in test tubes.
Since then, doctors using ivermectin have saved thousands of people around the world who were sick with Covid, even many close to death; the mortality rates for those on ventilators dropped from 81 per cent to 39 per cent. As for people who have just been infected with the virus, there is an almost 100 per cent cure rate. And it is also working as a prophylactic, protecting healthcare workers.
Yet, other than Borody, almost nobody in Australia is treating patients with ivermectin. Why? At first glance, it seems inexplicable. Borody’s triple therapy combines ivermectin with a bog-standard — pardon the pun — antibiotic and zinc. The safety profile is so well-known that there is virtually no risk.
Doctor claims Ivermectin triple therapy is ‘amazingly effective’ in treating COVID-19
