in the ANC way obviously:

- they will get the one least fit for purpose in a hot climate with poor deep cold storage capability and then transport it on the roofs of mini bus taxis in the baking sun ... kinda like buying trains that are too tall for our tunnels

- of course at least 70% of either the procured doses or the money will be stolen, or both

- the few doses that make it to the people will have been baking a while and morphed into something entirely different that doesn't do anything to covid, but there's a good chance some people spontaneously combust or grow a second penis

- naturally, any and all side effects, corruption and the continued waves of covid will be apartheid's fault
OH hell no, second penis is the last thing SOUTH Africa needs right now.

Experts issue warning over vaccine delays and third wave

Experts have warned that the delays suffered by South Africa's COVID-19 vaccination programme could result in a third wave hitting the country, the Sunday Times reports.

There is no plan.
The ANC cannot be pro-active and they cannot plan ahead.
They always wait until the #^$#@ hits the fan and then scramble to try and fool the media.

Good examples of this........Eskom, SASSA, Post Office, SABC.......and the list goes on and on.

The arsholes-that-be [ATB] should look at other treatments as well as the vaccine have all sorts of weird effects on people some of which are fatal and others not. How the hell are you going to know whether you'll survive the vaccines let alone the Con Virus?!

There is a lot of talk about the use of a product called: 'Invermectin'

Dr. Naaseeba Kathrada has this to say about it and it is perhaps time to look at something that is 'hiding-in-plain-sight' as it were:

Although Ivermectin is used for the treatment and control of parasites in animals in South Africa it is also used elsewhere to treat several tropical diseases in humans not commonly seen here.

Ivermectin was first registered in South Africa in 1947 and, seemingly, has had no adverse side-affects in that time.

Considering how deeply rooted superstition is in South African minds, plus the fact that this muti is apparently harmless, I would say that it should be available to whoever wants it because the psychological effect will be beneficial to the users.
1947? surely you mean 1975? Would be very interested to see your source of information.

In South Africa ivermectin is registered for use under Act 36 of 1947 (Department of Agriculture) for use in animals. This means that veterinarians and other trained personnel are allowed to prescribe it as an antiparasitic agent for a variety of animals. The drug is not currently registered for human use, but SAHPRA occasionally grants Section 21 permits for the use of topical ivermectin as an unregistered product for the treatment of individual patients with conditions such as scabies or head lice.

Several investigators have reported that when tested in the laboratory, ivermectin inhibits replication of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Given the current coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic, this has understandably received a lot of media attention. Thus, several clinical studies have been undertaken to evaluate ivermectin’s efficacy in treating the COVID-19 infection.

In some countries where ivermectin is registered for human use, the human use formulation is being used off-label in the management of Covid-19 infections where the clinical responsibility for monitoring of safety and efficacy lies solely with the prescriber. Furthermore, there are widespread reports of use of ivermectin for prophylaxis or treatment of COVID-19 in South Africa using the veterinary product.

Thanks for the link. I think @Geoff.D is confused by external (topical) use as an anti-parasitic, which is completely different from internal use.

Fellow south Africans,

Because some of you chose to go out and hunt eggs left hidden by the easter bunny and play other silly games instead of remaining locked in your homes, it is unfortunate that we now face another, and more more deadly, fourth wave...

Ivermectin has not been banned; rather, it has not been approved for use in humans.
Do you believe the SAHPRA spokesperson when she says that?
The mouth is talking but the hands are busy with something else.



Looks like jackboot thuggery to me.

Yet the SANDF spends 200 million on an unrecognised obscure drug from Cuba that is rumoured to treat COVIDS-19 symptoms, and then loses 40% of it because the stupid cnuts are too incompetent to close a fridge door.

So maybe SAHPRA should explain whether Interferon alfa-2b is registered and approved for use in humans in South Africa?
If not, then where were the police raids?

Well all you and others claiming it was recently banned in South Africa have to do is show that it was a legally available medication in South Africa just prior to this alleged ban. What schedule was it? What sort of dosage was in the typical legally available tablet?

That the state is engaged in skewed use of resources to target people selling an unregistered drug is nothing unusual. It's pretty much standard operating procedure.
