Inexpensive anti-worming drug magic bullet against Covid?


New scientific data is emerging almost daily showing the effectiveness of Ivermectin, a cheap anti-parasite drug used to treat infections caused by roundworms, threadworms, and other parasites, in the treatment of Covid-19.

Ivermectin was developed in the 1970’s. Its developers won the Nobel Prize. The drug successfully prevented river blindness, a parasitic, tropical disease affecting the skin and eyes that is spread by repeated bites from infected black flies. It’s most common in those who live in remote African villages, where the development of Ivermectin changed lives. Since its development, the drug has been given to billions of people around the world for a variety of parasitic diseases, and has proven to be safe.

Many Clinical trials around the world have shown positive results of Ivermectin in the treatment of Covid-19, and there are more studies ongoing.

So why isn’t the US Department of Health and Human Services not looking at Ivermectin to help stomp out the Covid-19 nightmare currently happening here in the US? The drug is cheap and billions of people have taken it for nearly half a century. So why aren’t we using it more?

Could the reason be that Ivermectin is out of patent and therefore nobody stands to make any money from its use as a Covid-19 treatment as it’s currently prescribed?

While the drug itself cannot be patented, its delivery system can be, and therein lies some huge potential monetary rewards.


An April 6, 2020 press release by the pharmaceutical company Medincell, which receives a lot of funding by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation states, “The FDA-approved Drug Ivermectin inhibits the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro.”

April 23, 2020: This Release was put out by Bloomberg: MedinCell: Adapt and overcome in response to the Covid-19 crisis

Reading further into the MedinCell release, there is this gem:

MedinCell announced on April 6, 2020, its Covid-19 project launched a few weeks ago. This program aims at developing a long-acting injectable Ivermectin formulation for several months to protect people who are not infected with Covid-19 in order to break the virus chain of transmission. Such a tool could play a decisive role in the management of Covid-19 pandemic, by enabling many people around the world, especially those most exposed and at risk, to protect themselves.”

MedinCell is developing an injectable version of Ivermectin specifically for the treatment/prevention of Covid-19. This delivery system is new for Ivermectin and therefore can be patented, and a cheap pill suddenly becomes a $3,000 a shot.

In the meantime there has been a group of doctors screaming from the rooftops about this literally for MONTHS . The Frontline Covid 19 Critical Care Alliance has put out protocols for prevention and treatment of covid19 using Ivermectin and a cocktail of supplements you can get OTC. If you go to this link there are protocols for prevention AND treatment.

Dr. Kory from the FCCC even went in front of Congress back in DECEMBER, and begged them to make it available for emergency use. You can follow the link above for the video of him testifying.

As of this writing, the US Government is FINALLY starting to take notice, as is reflected on their site.

I find these things curious: Why are they saying that they were working on a vaccine on JANUARY 13TH, 2020???? If you refer to the timeline at the top, not even the WHO had declared a Public Health Emergency. Yet they were “working on a vaccine”.

This all brings us up to now

Many states are running out or, are out of hospital room all together. People are in hospital beds in hallways in California. People are suffering, people are dying. Hundreds of thousands of people are gone. People. Someone’s Mom, Dad, Brother, Cousin, Aunt, Sister, grandparent etc.

As reported by the Buffalo News, an 80 year old local woman was on a vent here at Millard Fillmore. Her family had to get a court order to get the doctors to treat her with Ivermectin! A COURT ORDER! Long story short, she was on deaths door, and IT SAVED HER.

Why have they been so slow to get this information out? Why did it take a Judges order for these people to get lifesaving treatment for their mom?

In other countries, they send people home with FREE home isolation kits that include Ivermectin, vitamins and some other things.

Could this de-worming drug be a bridge to the vaccine? If distributed to health care workers as prophylaxes, and people living in places with overwhelmed hospitals, could it make a difference?

If you are interested in getting ivermectin for you and/or your family, you can contact the docs at FCCC, and they will help you get in contact with a doctor that will prescribe it for you.

All of the information in this piece is linked to the original source. I am not a doctor, nor do I claim to be one in the internet. I am just putting out PUBLIC INFORMATION . Your choices are your own to make, and please consult with your doctor regarding what is best for you. Hopefully there will be an end to this nightmare soon.

UPDATE 11/19 2nd Stage Covid Lockdowns Here and Around the World

It’s not just our Governor picking on us, or trying to ruin business. The COVID issue is a worldwide problem that seems to be getting worse.

It is well documented that when the Spanish Flu (that didn’t even start in Spain) went round in 1918, the second wave which started in November was much worse than the first wave and killed many more people. Why?

One reason is that World War 1 ended on November 11 (Veterans/Armistice Day), troops came home from overseas, and the city of Philadelphia in particular had huge victory parades against the guidance that was out at the time. People were sick of being cooped up, they were jubilant that the war was over, and huge crowds packed the city. Thousands of people became infected and it spread even worse than before. Cities that did not have parades and such did much better in controlling it.

What significance does this have now?

Tales from the End of the Road; Living through COVID19 in Key West Part 9

July 15, 2020:

I started to write “Quarantine Day [whatever] but we are no longer under quarantine, and I started back to work a little while ago. 

I went from not working for 100-odd days to working A LOT. I have not had the mental capacity to keep writing this journal. It’s deeply depressing to me to count and recount the ways in which the handling of COVID here in Florida has failed us. Nothing is changing for the better, people are getting sick at an alarming rate (every other day, it seems someone I know has tested positive for the virus), and I still have not seen any unemployment, so I was forced back to work, putting myself at risk for the sake of people’s dining-out pleasure. It’s emotionally and physically draining, but I don’t really have a choice right now.

So that’s where I am now. It’s definitely not all rainbows and butterflies down here in the Sunshine state, as I’m sure anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock can see. There’s not much else to say. I’m just going to keep working until we shut down again or I get the Coronavirus. Whichever happens first. Be safe, everyone!
