Ivermectin works by paralyzing the nervous system of a parasite and so I don't know how that would actually affect a virus.
Interesting, thanks for this. Have to wonder if the "equivalent" of a nervous system in the virus may be its receptors....... only more spitballing though.

From what i could find, granted this might be all nonsense, it only helps with the reproduction of the COV-19 virus. So the virus's reproduction is slowed. Which in turn i guess reduces the severity.

Of course I would. I have dogs and a kid in Grade R. I can do with a dose of de-wormer and lice killer. If it happens to squash a corona or two, win-win.

Exactly! So what does this "ban" do? It reduces the choices you have on the market.

Doctors don't decide if medications are effective, that up to the medical researchers who run trials. This smells of HCQ, bleac, baby shampoo and various other conspiracies type miracle cure
Doctors decide on what medication maybe effective for individual patients under their care when treating ailments. They access a list of medications that have been found or have been designed to to treat X . By banning a substance already in the list just because it is not officially registered for ailment X is just blind stupidity!

Would you use Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug only approved in SA to treat animals, for the treatment of Covid-19? Have you already used it? What would make you consider using it? Have you already stockpiled any of it?
My father-in-law says he's got loads of it on the farm. He uses it on his sheep. When I asked him if he'd take it for Covid-19 he just laughed. I don't think he's that desperate... yet.

Watch the level headed Fokus program on SABC 2 coming on at 10:30 today.
That puts this all into perspective!
Yes, my familie on the farm dose their sheep with a product called Ivomec.

Other than that picture is there any confirmed report that India is using Ivermectin in their treatment of Covid?
I don't know , but the numbers for a population off over a billion , and not really a first world country don't add up
