The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a caution against treating or preventing COVID-19 in people using Ivermectin, a veterinary drug used to deworm cows and horses. People are turning to conspiracy theories about drugs unfit for human consumption instead of getting a free and readily available vaccine that has been proven to save lives and prevent the disease’s worst symptoms.
Several people globally have taken the drug with only the mildest of side effects.The FDA’s statement came in reaction to an increase in calls to Mississippi’s poison control center, where citizens are reportedly consuming the deworming medicine as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on the state.
Ivermectin is used in humans to treat a range of parasite illnesses, but it has no virus-fighting properties. Despite this, some are determined to poison themselves rather than take sensible precautions such as wearing masks, social separation, and being vaccinated.This is just one minor chapter in the COVID denial and derangement tale. Anti-vaxxers’ zeal defies all logic and comprehension.
This weekend, Donald Trump held a rally in Alabama, where he encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated only to meet with a chorus of boos.Getting improper doses of medication, especially for something suited for a horse or a cow, might be deadly. It is critical that persons seeking medical attention do so through their physician.
