How Canada Views Ivermectin
According to the CBC, Dr. Gerald Evans, an infectious disease specialist at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont. said that early studies indicated Ivermectin was a possible treatment for COVID-19, but for some reason he is now saying that Ivermectin is bad and that you should not question the medical system in this;
Mr. Evans says of his intial belief in the power of Ivermectin, "That was based on the fact that in a test tube, it seemed to have some activity. But what we found out since then is that many of these observations, many of the trials, were done very poorly. In fact, some of them were retracted as being false, and so they were pulled out of the published literature.
When you look at an analysis of all the remaining things that are there, there is absolutely no indication that ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID, that would prevent you from getting into hospital or from dying of COVID. It just doesn't work.
What people are then doing is they're purchasing the formulation that's used in animals. Those are dose adjusted for large animals like horses or cows. If you're taking that, there's a serious likelihood that you will get a very major side effect from the medication. You could even find yourself ... poisoning yourself.
It's better to really try and go to people who have the right knowledge and are going to give you information that's objective, and not trying to somehow benefit them in any way “ (LINK),
How The World Views Ivermectin
As of January 2022 the following countries are using Ivermectin in clinical and home settings for the prevention and treatment of 'covid'; Argentina, Bangladesh, Belize, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil (some states), Bulgaria, Cambodia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Guatamala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iran, Jamaica, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Northern Macedonia, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Slovakia, South Africa, Thailand, U.S.A.(some states), Ukraine, Venezuela, Zimbabwe.
Why are these nations using and benefiting from Ivermectin but Canada cannot? Because their on-going studies demonstrate that the Ivermectin distribution campaigns repeatedly lead to "rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality. Because most of their government, medical and pharmaceutical personnel are not benefiting financially from ignoring their own test results. (LINK),
How did India, the most populous country on Earth become a believer in the efficacy of Ivermectin? They conducted country-wide testing on Millions of people and the results made them just as angry as I am at this writing.
So angry are the Indians at being lied to by the CDC about Ivermectin that “...the Indian Bar Association (IBA) sued WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan on May 25, 2021 accusing her in a 71-point brief of causing the deaths of Indian citizens by misleading them about Ivermectin.
Among the most prominent examples include the Ivermectin areas of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Goa where cases dropped 98%, 97%, 94%, and 86%, respectively.
By contrast, Tamil Nadu opted out of Ivermectin. As a result, their cases skyrocketed and rose to the highest in India. Tamil Nadu deaths increased ten-fold.
Their new cases rose from 10,986 to 36,184 . Not only did Tamil Nadu's cases rise to the highest in India, but their deaths skyrocketed from 48 on April 20 to 474 on May 27. Meanwhile, Delhi's deaths in the same test period fell from 277 to 117.
In a test of over 4000 people in India (3000+ took Ivermectin) and over 1000 did not. The results were that 2% Ivermectin takers had PCR test confirmed COVID and 11.7% non-takers had PCR test confirmed COVID. The people were given two 21 mg doses of Ivermectin. This costs less than 1 penny per person” (LINK), (LINK),
How then, in the face of global proof to the contrary can Canadian Mr. Gerald Evans and a host of other experts quoted in the media, claim that none of these reports of Ivermectin's success are true and that scientists the world over are lying about the efficacy of Ivermectin?
Of course the 'fact-checkers' play a big part in hiding evidence. Mr Pablo Rougerie, editor of a non-profit, fact checking site has a similar opinion, in that the results produced by the testing in India could not possibly be correct for reasons of poor reporting and bad methodology. (LINK),
Mr. Evans, Mr. Rougerie and others are only questioning the results from India's tests because those results have become very high profile in the news and internet. No experts that I can find are questioning the extensive work of Japan, Peru, South Africa, Germany or any other nation, even though those nations have experienced results similar to India's and have adopted Ivermectin to varying degrees as a result.
With respect to testing and results being 'retracted' as noted by Mr.. Evans, he might want to contact those nations which have adopted Ivermectin in spite of their own 'bad methodology and poor reporting' and have them withdraw their findings.
Similarly he may want to contact the U.S. National Institute Of Health and have them retract this study on the effectiveness of Ivermectin in saving lives of 'covid' patients. (LINK),
Mr. Evans also needs to address this document published in the American Journal Of Theraputics where, “...a focus of the manuscript was on the 27 controlled trials available in January 2021, 15 of which were randomized controlled trials (RCT's), the preferred trial of the World Health Organization, U.S. National Institutes of Health, and the European Medicines Agency.
Consistent with numerous meta-analyses of Ivermectin RCT's since published by expert panels from the UK, Italy, Spain, and Japan, they found large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with Ivermectin.” (LINK),
Authors at the American Journal Of Theraputics have published a well constructed rebuttal to Mr. Evans claim that the western scientific community alone are capable of conducting proper scientific tests. That rebuttal can be found here (LINK),
Those other nations accused of poor testing methodology are too busy saving the lives of their own people to bother with Mr. Evans and his ilk.
