Question Does adding ivermectin, an inexpensive and widely available antiparasitic drug, to the standard of care reduce the risk of severe disease in patients with COVID-19 and comorbidities?Findings In this open-label randomized clinical trial of high-risk patients with COVID-19 in Malaysia, a 5-day course of oral ivermectin administered during the first week of illness did not reduce the risk of developing severe disease compared with standard of care alone.Meaning The study findings do not support the use of ivermectin for patients with COVID-19.

In other words, it does nothing to help at all. Considering the side effects, it might make some people’s condition worse. I get the mistrust of governments and medical establishment. However, there are herbal treatments available in African and Asian traditional medicine, especially Nigerian and Chinese, that will be helpful in addition to conventional treatment, or if access to such is unavailable.
Consult an actual trained and qualified traditional doctor who is or is assisting a medical doctor for help that will be specific to your case, and don’t rely on rumors on the internet. Don’t even rely *solely* on the internet for conventional treatment. Many people have ended up injured or dead from taking things for granted.
Only a doctor examining you and handling your specific case can give you accurate information about what you should do. However, there are some things that are just proven not to work at all. Don’t waste your money getting off label use cattle pills when for the same or less, you can get conventional treatment and additional herbs to make you more comfortable and help you heal.
