As is often the case, there's a teeny-tiny grain of truth at the core of the covidiocy.

Good news: A 5-day course of ivermectin in hospitalized COVID patients resulted in a decreased viral load in respiratory secretions by day 5. Bad news: However, it had no effect on the clinical course of the disease.

IOW, ivermectin seems to be better at protecting the public from contagion rather than protecting the patient from the disease process. Just like masks, only with extra freedumb.

I'm sure they just aren't taking enough. Why not try taking double? 10x? Go for it anti vaxxers.

But the Coronavirus was free of nematodal infection, so it has that going for it, which is nice.

The problem isn't "does this work" but is "why does it appear to work sometimes" enough for the crackpots.

We know that people in areas with high rates of Malaria seem to deal with Covid better than those who don't. I expect it has to do with exposure to a different virus that the local mosquitos carry that tilts the number in the statistics just enough to show up as interesting combined with a warmer climate so people aren't as close.  That shift in statistics was what brought in the Hydroxychloroquine hype which was reenforced by good old fashioned snake oil salesmanship.

People from Myanmar tend to be imune to a large number of mosquito carried illnesses but only if they were born in the Burmese region.  Their offspring have no such protection when born far away so it can't be genetic but appeared to be at first.

The immunity system is mostly detect A, fight A.  It could be that in some cases it detects B and fights A and these quack cures somehow trigger it in some people.  There are also some old cures that effectively starve an infected cell of something essential breaking the infection manufacturing machinery.  Ancient antidotes sometimes worked that way.

I have never met someone from arkansas and I doubt I ever will.  How unoriginal of a people do you have to be to name your state after another by adding an A-R prefix?  How stupid do you have to be to choose that state to be kansas?

"Hi everyone!  We're R-kansans!  We're not good enough to be full kansans."

How 'bout I just not care about anything out of the sub-kansans?

Should someone tell them there is a cheap and easy way to drastically improve your odds with covid? For instance, you can get it at any drugstore in the US these days, and it's free. I'm not telling them. Someone else tell them, if you think they should know.

I love that. The next time I get close to getting laid I'm going to announce at the top of my lungs,"And now prepare to gaze on my righteous glory!" She can't help but be enthused about the idea of sex after that. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I don't see why anyone would want to try using a random drug not approved for humans when there's a perfectly good, highly effective vaccine available.

Are they sure people aren't just cutting their coke with it? They tried that in 2011 and people's flesh started rotting off like it was krokodil.

June 23, 2011- -- Cocaine cut with the veterinary drug levamisole could be the culprit in a flurry of flesh-eating disease in New York and Los Angeles. The drug, used to deworm cattle, pigs and sheep, can rot the skin off noses, ears and cheeks. And over 80 percent of the country's coke supply contains it.

It's a real problem. Vets here in WA are asking folks not to buy ivermectin, as it's causing availability problems for animal treatment.

Oh, and it not only has no goddamned effect on COVID-19, it'll likely harm or even kill you.

This is what happens when idiots read pre-release research papers.
