Dear Editor -
The money and politics surrounding Covid is absolutely sickening. The latest example is the introduction of the new drug by Merck, Molnupiravir. Interestingly enough, Merck also manufactures Ivermectin, a drug that has been vilified in the media and most of the medical establishment.
Ivermectin has a long history of safety and efficacy. The discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2015. Because hundreds of millions of people have been treated with Ivermectin and it has controlled diseases which blighted the lives of billions of the poor and disadvantaged throughout the tropics, it is included on the WHO's "List of Essential Medicines". (World Health Organization)
So, why is Ivermectin used as a prevention and treatment for Covid? Since 2012, multiple in vitro studies have demonstrated that Ivermectin inhibits the replication of many RNA viruses, including influenza, Zika and others and it inhibits the binding of SARS-CoV-2 to host tissue. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties with in vitro data demonstrating profound inhibition of both cytokine production and transcription of nuclear factor-kB, the most potent mediator of inflammation.

According to Dr. Bryan Ardis, there are 63 studies from 18 countries proving that Ivermectin stops the disease process and transmission of Covid within 48 hours. As proof of the effectiveness, 4 states in India treated hundreds of millions of people with Ivermectin. Within a week or two, these states saw a 94%, 95% or 98% reduction. People were completely cured of Covid. People were so incensed that the head of the Health Advocacy had only mandated the use of vaccines and not Ivermectin, she is being put on trial by the Parliament of India for War Crimes against Humanity for causing the death of hundreds of thousands of Indians.
Why is Merck pushing Molnupiravir instead of Ivermectin? Gee, maybe it has to do with money. I ordered Ivermectin for $2.50/treatment and Molnupiravir cost $700 for a 5 day treatment course with a 50% success rate. Oh, and the 9 new billionaires minted in 2020 all were associated with the pharmaceutical industry.......
To legally purchase Ivermectin or get a prescription, go to:
Other excellent resources are thedrardisshow.com and americasfrontlinedoctors.org.
Notice that none of these resources include farm supply stores or veterinary clinics. Humans get medicines from sources legally licensed to treat humans.
What is happening in this country with Covid is nothing short of criminal. A safe, effective and cheap treatment with almost a 100% success rate is being denied to Covid patients or strongly discouraged from being used. Don't depend on a corrupt government/pharmaceutical industry (they are in lock-step with each other) to save your life. Now, more than ever, you have to be your own health advocate if you want to stay safe and healthy.
