Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19: meta analysis
Here is a nice continuously updated summary on Ivermectin:
100% of the 28 studies to date report positive effects. Early treatment is more successful, with an estimated reduction of 87% in the effect measured using a random effects meta-analysis, RR 0.13 [0.04-0.40]. Prophylactic use also shows high effectiveness.
100% of the 10 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) report positive effects, with an estimated reduction of 74%, RR 0.26 [0.12-0.56].
The probability that an ineffective treatment generated results as positive as the 28 studies to date is estimated to be 1 in 268 million (p = 0.0000000037).
Isn’t the trick finding a physician who will prescribe Ivermectin…even better, finding one which will prescribe it for prophylactic use.
