Nardelli, et al. “Crying wolf in time of Corona: the strange case of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Is the fear of failure withholding potential life-saving treatment from clinical use?”
Online publish date: 11 March 2021
The study analyzed 7 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) and found that use of ivermectin reduces risk of death from Covid-19 by 81% as compared to controls.
Each study on its own, and the set of studies combined, found that ivermectin was effective against Covid-19.
“A total of 1323 patients were randomized in 7 RCTs per-formed in 6 countries. Four trials were multicentric. Iver-mectin treatment resulted in a lower mortality when compared to placebo: 14/703 (2%) vs 57/620 (9%),P<0.01, odds ratio 0.19 (0.10, 0.34).”
The p-value for the meta-analysis was less than 0.01, which is clearly statistically significant. And the odds ratio means that Ivermectin reduced mortality by 81%, reducing risk of death from 1.00 for controls to 19% by comparison.
RCTs are the so-called gold standard for studies, and this is a meta-analysis which combines several RCTs. These results are far better than any set of studies on Remdesivir, an approved and widely used (to the tune of 3 billion dollars) medication. And yet ivermectin is still rejected by medical authorities and government, costing untold suffering and a massive death toll, most of which could be avoided by prompt use of ivermectin and use of Vitamin D as a prophylaxis and an adjunct treatment.

Billions of $$ will be lost by the Drug Companies if Ivermectin is acknowledged to be effective hrs. Covid ,
as an EUA for vaccines will have to be withdrawn if there is an existing ( Ivermectin ) remedy for Covid.
It seems those government officials recommending against Ivermectin are doing so for either political reasons due to leftist ideology, or are the extremely risk-averse type who prefer government work. Both seem to care more about themselves than those who will die unnecessarily due to these decisions. May God change their evil hearts.
leftist ideology? what does leftist ideology have to do with it? they are ignoring Ivermectin or recommending against it for one reason: MONEY! They want us to continue to be afraid of covid so they can continue the lockdowns and get all of us to take their experimental vaccines. Or, if we get covid, then they want us to take their Remdesivir “antiviral” which has horrible side effects and costs $3000 per dose. Ivermectin costs $2 per dose and has very low–or no–side effects. It’s all about the MONEY, and all about CONTROL. nothing to do with left or right.
