A new, peer-reviewed study finds that one of the cheap, widely available drugs that has been dismissed by the left, establishment media and many in the health establishment as a treatment for COVID-19 reduces infections, hospitalizations and deaths by about 75%.
Ivermectin, in more than 30 trials around the world, causes “repeated, consistent, large magnitude improvements in clinical outcomes’ at all stages of the disease,” according to the study, which will be published in the U.S. journal Frontiers of Pharmacology, DailyMail.com reported.

The evidence is so strong, the researchers believe, the anti-parasitic drug should become a standard therapy everywhere, hastening global recovery.
“The data is overwhelming – we are in a pandemic, and this is an incredibly effective way to combat it. If we use ivermectin widely, our societies can open up,” said study co-author Professor Paul Marik, director of emergency and pulmonary care at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
A previous study by Professor Andrew Hill of Liverpool University also found ivermectin cuts death rates by about 75%.
DailyMail.com said a new trial of ivermectin as a COVID treatment is due to begin soon at Oxford University.
Evidence that the widespread use of ivermectin in parts of India and South America have caused a major reduction in infections and deaths was presented last weekend at an online summit of international experts last weekend hosted by Dr. Tess Lawrie, director of the Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy in Bath, England.
On Wednesday, Lawrie urged the World Health Organization to recommend ivermectin to treat COVID-19, providing evidence in a 97-page report.
Politicization of treatments
Dr. Harvey Risch, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and Yale School of Medicine, is one of many health experts who decry the politicization of COVID-19 treatments such as ivermectine and hydroxychloroquine.
