Israeli scientist says COVID-19 could be treated for under $1/day

… could help reduce the length of infection for people who contract coronavirus for less than a $1 a day

… randomized, controlled, double-blinded trial from May 15, 2020, through the end of January 2021

… were diagnosed with coronavirus  and staying in state-run COVID-19 hotels

… pills for three days in a row … swabbed every two days

… 72% of volunteers treated with ivermectin tested negative for the virus by day six

… 13% of ivermectin patients were infectious after six days, compared with 50% of the placebo group – almost four times as many

… “Our study shows first and foremost that ivermectin has antiviral activity,”

… “there is almost a 100% chance that a person will be noninfectious in four to six days, which could lead to shortening isolation”

… five patients were referred to hospitals, with four of them being in the placebo arm

… continued with the ivermectin treatment and was sent back to the hotel a day later in good condition

Oxford University announced a large trial on ivermectin effectiveness

… “We tried to publish it, and it was kicked away by three journals

… “This drug will not bring any big economic profits,” and so Big Pharma doesn’t want to deal with it, he said

… “A billion people took it. They gave it to them. It’s a real shame.”
