Two recently published meta-analyses of randomised trial with ivermectin in patients with Covid 19 have shown significant reduction in mortality. Lower levels of inflammatory markers ( d Dimer, CRP and ferritin) have been associated with ivermectin , as also quicker clearance of C19 virus.
Strangely there has hardly been any stir in the Western press; it is difficult to fathom the reasons. Hopefully the Indian press gets more excited.
The 2 trials need exposure, especially considering “breakthrough” infections despite being fully vaccinated against the Delta variant.
It is obvious that more C 19 variants shall keep popping up.
