      There are reports that the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh is down 98% from its surge. That’s attributed by many (already i-enthusiasts) to their routine use of ivermectin for months. It turns out from what I can tell that this is part of a disciplined approach they’ve been taking…a whole lot of testing and contact tracing *and* treatments allowed. In primitive (sarcasm) countries like that, which have only a ~5% vax rate largely (I think) because they didn’t or couldn’t make a deal with Pfizer, they had their primitive medical boards take a look at treatment, with approved drugs. Here is as close as I’ve gotten so far to untainted news from over there, that is, no American or Western celebrities, of one side or the other, intruding into the story. Unless of course you consider Dr. Anshul Pareek to be too often in our mass media telling us what to think:

      Never fear – if ivermectin is accepted to work here, the feds will be controlling the distribution.  Early treatment of Covid fucks up those scary numbers.  Florida’s allocation of Regeneron and remdesivir have been drastically cut when the feds took over distribution.  The feds want vaccines, and ONLY vaccines, to be used.  IMO and all that.

      A dose appropriate for a 1000 pound horse is not appropriate for a 150 lb human.

        and did you know that many drugs have what they call “off-label” applications?  Someone actually won a Nobel Prize for demonstrating ivermectin’s use in treating humans.  More fitting than giving a Nobel Prize for peace to a warmonger!

        https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-nobel-ivermectin/fact-check-2015-nobel-prize-for-ivermectin-intended-for-treatment-of-parasitic-infections-doesnt-prove-its-efficacy-on-covid-19-idUSL1N2QB2XA

        The text in the image reads: “IVERMECTIN. If you just got finessed into calling the medicine that won the 2015 Nobel Prize for its role in treating human disease ‘horse de-wormer’, then you need to sit the next couple of plays out.”

        The description in one post reads: “Ivermectin has been given to humans 3.7 billion times in the past 30 years. It’s totally safe and has been called a “miracle drug.” Its creators won a Nobel Prize in Medicine for inventing it, and the WHO puts it on a list of ‘must have drugs’ for any country.”

        One half of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to William C. Campbell and Satoshi Omura for “for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites,” according to the Nobel Prize website here .

        Marginalizing all ivermectin by calling it “horse paste” seems like the same old carrying water for the current administration, to me.  I just see that as “folks who have not bothered doing their actual research”, snicker, and move on.  And yes, some people have tried to use “horse paste” – not surprising when the official stance of our current government is “vaccine or die”, with early treatment not only not recommended, but actively discouraged.

        A horse tranquilizer is not appropriate for a human being. An elephant gun is not appropriate for shooting pigeons.
        Lots of things are not appropriate for unintended use.
        Ivermectin is intended for use on humans and like tranquilizers, comes in human doses.
        Your statement seems to be irrelevant nonsense.
        Care to clarify or are you stuck on an MSM propaganda narrative?

      Although I do indeed consider Dr. Pareek not a household name, in the sense of hordes of people thinking he has a dog (or a horse) in this race: He does have a Twitter account I guess. I don’t, but can go to Twitter on the web. From a posting by the good Dr.:

      Adults above 15 yrs
      First day 12 mg
      7th day 12 mg 15 th day 12 mg
      Evry 15 th day 12 mg
      Children
      6 mg same schedule
      Not to be given to pregnant/ lactating/and not to 5yrs child

      “The active caseload in the country’s most populous state has been reduced to 187 from a high of 3,10,783 in April, pushing the recovery rate up to 98.7 per cent, the state government said in a release.” (I know, their numbering system is not ours, maybe it is if you remove one comma). from https://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news
      I read the figure of something like 5.8% vaccinated rate, somewhere else. I don’t think these local (un-Pfizerized, un-CNNized) doctors have read or heard as much about the risks of the vaxes as I have…I say that because the more vocal of the Uttar Pradesh docs are welcoming and encouraging the increasing availability of vax there. But there seems to be freedom of speech still in existence in those remote locales, can’t stress that enough. In the pre-vax days, stretching to I think a few weeks ago, it was as I say a pretty disciplined, or dare I say multi-pronged, program to do all these non-vax things that made the kind of difference our Gummit claims to wish for: “The key parts of UP government’s plan to tackle Covid-19 included contact tracing, early detection, isolation and free and timely provision of medicine kits and treatment to the rural populace.”

      Ivermectin is a compound which binds to the chloride channels of various invertebrates’ nervous systems, causing paralysis and death in those organisms.  It doesn’t do this in most vertebrates (fish and turtles being noted exceptions, I presume because turtles are fucking weird, biologically) but of course that’s dosage-based.

      it is, in layman’s terms, a pesticide that is more or less safe to apply internally to humans and livestock at recommended dosages. the next chemical over in its group is a pretty common ant poison.

      Now, here’s the problem. Covid-19 is a virus. It does not have a nervous system, much less chloride channels. It’s not even alive. It’s certainly not an invertebrate. In fact it’s probably somewhat smaller than the ivermectin molecule. There is really no conceivable way that this stuff is useful against covid-19.

      It might be handy if you caught a pinworm infestation while your immune system was busy with the virus or something. In such a case I’d suggest actually getting a prescription for it, instead of hoping that a tube of calcium sulfate fixed with petroleum jelly and loaded with a dosage meant for a 1200-pound perissodactyl that can digest cellulose will do the trick.

      https://www.republicworld.com/india-news/general-news/glenmark-pharma-expects-to-launch-its-anti-covid-19-nasal-spray-in-india-this-year.html

      Indian pharmaceutical company Glenmark Limited has signed an agreement with Canadian biotech firm SaNOtize Research and Development Corp to commercialize its nasal spray for COVID-19 treatment in India and other Asian countries.

      As part of the exclusive long term strategic partnership, Glenmark and SaNOtize will manufacture, market, and distribute its Nitric Oxide Nasal Spray (NONS) in India, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Nepal, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Timor Leste, and Vietnam, according to a statement by the company.

      Glenmark expects to launch the nasal spray this year under the brand name ‘FabiSpray’ in India. ”The Phase III clinical trial for NONS is expected to be completed, followed by commercial launch under the brand name FabiSpray in India, by the fourth quarter of the calendar year 2021,” the company said in a filing.

      It is available in the form of a simple nasal spray, and it is designed to kill the coronavirus in the upper airways, preventing it from incubating and spreading to the lungs. It is based on nitric oxide (NO) and has a direct effect on the COVID-19 virus.

      In March 2021, SaNOtize’s clinical trials showed NONS was a safe and effective antiviral treatment to prevent the transmission of COVID‐19, shorten its course, and reduce the severity of symptoms. In the first 24 hours, NONS reduced the average viral load by around 95%, and then by more than 99% within 72 hours. It has been tested in healthy volunteers and patients as part of UK and Canada clinical trials, the company added.

        I take Agmatine Sulfate (I buy it as a bulk powder) five days a week, I wonder if it helped, hypothetically, get me through any COVID-19 infections.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agmatine

        I also have been taking zinc, Vitamins C & D, and other good stuff, for a long time. My uninformed guess is that there can be a thin line between being infected and just uncomfortable for a few days, and the virus gaining a major foothold in the body, overwhelming the immune system, and then causing serious respiratory problems, along with other serious symptoms. I’m vaccinated, but I still do what I can to ward off getting seriously infected.

        Nitric oxide is a vasodiolator, so anything that improves blood circulation would obviously come in handy against a virus known to produce clotting. It also boosts the immune system, which is always a good thing. You can easily get nitric oxide into your body by eating beets or leafy vegetables. And if you don’t like the taste of beets, you can always get beet root powder in capsule form from any reputable supplement store.

          I bought that too, in bulk. It’s really tasty in smoothies, though I guess for those new to that it could have a laxative effect. The old timey naturalists would say it was an important addition to ones juicing routine, but it was powerful, so go easy with it at first.

      I posted once a URL to a biophysical article, way different than the level of Jimmy Dore (who I still watch/listen to).

      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8203399/

      Nothing against Jimmy (though I don’t find his name among the contributors here! And note that Jimmy’s latest installment I saw has a doctor who’s enthused about many Covid19 treatment possibilities but says “Ivermectin;  maybe.”)

      The above article appeared to be legit and by medical researchers.  It’s a review so sometimes those are bashed by those who will bash, in case anything in *any* of the studies reviewed is found to be questionable.

      Why would medical researchers care about IVM?  Well, pandemic.  They tried all sorts of things, anti-HIV, anti-blood clot, etc. and *some seemed to work*.  For various phases of the awful disease.  There are claims that IVM has been part of very sweeping reductions in C19 cases in Peru and India.  Why Peru and India?  Probly because they were denied much of that precious vax; we know the First World hoarded it.

      Anyway the theory relates to IVM attaching to ACE receptors of those worms and baddies, causing no more protection at their outer skin.  And the theory of why that would be any good against a virus… the IVM would bind to a person’s cells which would otherwise be targeted by the virus, similar ACE receptors involved,  similar to those on parasites,  the biophysicists say.

      Sometimes theory greatly lags clinical results and observations of things actually working.
