- The Facts:The World Health Organization’s own data shows use of safe and inexpensive drug called ivermectin could have reduced COVID mortality by 81%, but they still won’t endorse it and are instead recommending vaccinations.
- Reflect On:If global health officials truly cared about saving lives, would they be holding back on information about these drugs? Is it even possible to accept such an idea that they may not be acting in people’s best interests?

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, there is ample evidence to support a completely different approach to treating COVID-19, yet it’s being ignored. We would likely not need any potentially harmful lockdowns, expensive drugs or vaccines if we used these treatments – and this might be exactly why they are not being talked about.
What Happened: Last week the World Health Organization (WHO) updated its guidelines on COVID-19 and the drugs that go with treating it. A drug we’ve reported on in Dec 2020 called Ivermectin, shows, via meta-analysis, that an 81% drop in mortality was seen in those treated with Ivermectin as opposed to standard care. This also came with a 64% decrease in hospitalizations. These are powerful numbers given what’s happening in our world with COVID, yet the WHO still refuses to endorse ivermectin as it feels confidence is low in how effective Ivermectin might be.
“The issue with the Ivermectin is that based on initial study and the currently available data, it is not strong enough for us to advocate the use of Ivermectin for treatment of COVID or prevention of COVID,” said WHO representative to the Philippines Rabindra Abeyasinghe.
He further goes on to state that without strong evidence they might be providing false confidence to the public. While this is understandable, it seems given how much is known about how safe and effective Ivermectin is, it’s likely not going to provide unreasonable hopefulness. Interestingly, the WHO hasn’t had a problem recommending highly experimental and not fully proven vaccines to the public, with no fear of giving them overconfidence. Why is this the case?
Ivermectin is useful in guarding against COVID-19 infection as well.
Why It Matters: Ivermectin is not a new drug that we know little about. To date, there have been 49 studies looking at the drug, and 26 of them were randomized controlled trials, showing that ivermectin works to treat COVID-19.
Back in December of 2020, multiple physician specialists were urging the CDC to look at Ivermectin as they had clinically seen it was a powerful treatment for COVID-19, yet this fell on deaf ears.
The pooled results of Ivermectin/COVID studies show an 80% improvement when used early, 89% when used as prophylaxis, and even a 50% improvement at late stages of contraction. You might be wondering why such a safe, long used and well understood drug is not being used while experimental vaccines are – you are right to wonder this. In the US, the FDA has not yet approved the vaccines and no vaccine company will be held liable for damages caused to citizens. Unlike ivermectin, the vaccines also have zero long term safety studies associated with them.
William C. Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura discovered ivermectin as a cure to river blindness and received a Nobel Prize for their work in 2015. Here is an excerpt from the press release of the Nobel Assembly:
