Ron: Here's a letter I sent to the Canberra Time today.
William Shaffner, 'New pill claimed to halve death rate' CT 3/1021, p.11, says Merck has a new drug, molnupiravir, and that it could be the first pill shown to treat COVID-19.
Ivermectin has been approved for human use for decades and, when taken within the first five days of onset of symptoms, it is successfully used to treat the various respiratory illnesses currently called COVID-19.
Vitamin B, C, D and zinc supplements, and Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) are also successfully preventing severe respiratory illnesses including those called COVID-19.
Wikipedia says Ivermectin is FDA approved for humans as an 'essential medicine'.
Ivermectin is a medication that is used to treat parasite infestations. In humans, this includes head lice, scabies, river blindness (onchocerciasis), strongyloidiasis, trichuriasis, ascariasis, and lymphatic filariasis.... It can be taken by mouth or applied to the skin for external infestations.
Ivermectin was discovered in 1975 and came into medical use in 1981. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines. Ivermectin is FDA-approved as an antiparasitic agent.
That's not true of experimental, emergency use only, anti-COVID injection trials involving billions of people currently. See: https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/covid-jabs-prohibition-of-ivermectin-are-part-of-global-collusion-to-cause-as-much-harm-and-death-as-conceivable
Numerous countries are prescribing ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of Covid; Mexico saw hospitalizations drop 76%.
The Indian Bar Association is charging WHO chief scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan with the mass murder of Indians. Dr. Swaminathan spoke AGAINST the use of Ivermectin in the Tamil Nadu province with the consequence that Ivermectin's use was blocked and Covid cases skyrocketed with deaths increasing ten-fold...In the provinces where Ivermectin was used-Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Goa- Covid cases declined sharply by 98%, 97%, 94%, and 86%.
This success, which cleared large areas of India from Covid, has been ignored by the MSM including the Canberra Times. WHY?
Similarly, Spain, the US, and Russia, successfully use HCQ to treat coronavirus.
HCQ has prevented 'COVID-19' devastating Africa, and much of Asia and Central and South America.
