Ivermectin – Silver Bullet or False Hope?

15 February
With a slow start to South Africa’s vaccine rollout, there still is no proven remedy to relieve the suffering of COVID-19 patients. Some doctors have hailed Ivermectin as a wonder-drug, but leading scientists say that, although it may look promising, they cannot say if it works and they cannot yet say if it doesn’t. Only more science can determine whether it’s safe and effective. As Ivermectin is put through the rigours of randomised control trials across the globe, some impatient South Africans are unwilling to wait and resort to self-medicating with the veterinary product. Carte Blanche tracks the latest developments in the application of Ivermectin.
