Despite so many small randomized clinical trials and observational studies that showed Ivermectin could be used to treat COVID-19 during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, physicians, researchers and individuals should stop attempting to treat COVID-19 with Ivermectin as the drug as no efficacy against most of the new variants that are currently dominating various countries.
Thailand Medical News was one of the first few who supported using the drug during the early stages of the pandemic when the wildtype Wuhan strains were the dominant in circulation.
However in November 2020 researchers and physicians in Brazil and Colombia reported to us that the SARS-C0V-2 strains then were displaying drug resistance to Ivermectin and it should be noted that physicians in both countries were then using the drug extensively to treat their patients.
Later when the P.1 or Gamma variant appeared, many found that Ivermectin
did not display any efficacy.
Numerous countries like India, Colombia, and Indonesia have since dropped Ivermectin from their official treatment guidelines and countries like Canada etc have banned in use in treating COVID-19.
Thailand Medical News no longer supports the FLCC treatment protocols and in fact has already asked for our names to be removed from their site. This has nothing to do with pressure from any government agencies in the U.S. or even big pharma influence.
Researchers, scientists and physicians need to keep themselves abreast with the latest research and developments about the SARS-CoV-2 virus as the COVID-19 pandemic is very dynamic as what we know from studies last year have been superseded with non-stop new emerging data. In fact many of the things we found out last year are already absolute.
Real scientists and physicians should avoid having ego and when the situation changes and should embrace that they are wrong or that things have changed and to accept the facts instead of ‘dancing’ and indulging in legal suits and trying to attract media attention etc. The key issue is saving human lives.
Most importantly, scientist, researchers, physicians and even government policy makers have to stop assuming that all SARS-CoV-2 variants belong to one homogenous group, rather each variant is very distinct from each other not just from the mutations found on them but in their transmissibility, pathogenesis, and immune evasiveness. Furthermore it is now coming to light that it is not just the mutations by themselves that play an important role but the type of mutations in a particular combination also exerts different properties!
People should not panic by the ever changing COVID-19 changing scenario as there are so many effective repurposed drugs, supplements, herbs and phytochemicals that can be used to act as antivirals to treat COVID-19 or that help alleviate and treat various other conditions associated with the disease provided if they are used in a personalized medicine approach as so many things are at play ie an individual’s own genetic makeup, existing and previous comorbidities, drugs being taken, dietary habits, personal lifestyle, identity of the variants etc. Utilizing various genetic and b
iomarker testing, an expert (Not necessarily a medical doctor as we have now found that many ordinary doctors are in fact clueless about the disease and are merely abiding by standard medical procedures developed by clueless policymakers!) might be able to develop a personalized prophylactic or treatment protocol against the COVID-19 disease.
As far as vaccines are concerned, new emerging data are starting to show an interesting picture which we will not comment on as the owners and staff of certain American social media platforms and American search engines who are under the payroll of the British and American elite negative-eugenics and genocide promoters who are controlling the COVID-19 narratives would give us trouble.
However it is becoming apparent that a shift away from antibody based therapeutics and instead a focus on a combination of antivirals and therapeutic drugs would be a better way forward to end this pandemic which the elites themselves have lost control off as they failed to reckon the mutating and evolving capabilities of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Thailand Medical News will be publishing more emerging studies that truly demonstrates Ivermectin ineffectiveness against the newer variants in coming weeks as certain studies are already near completion.
