Is There Nothing It Can’t Do?

Ivermectin may stop spread of river blindness, West Nile virus, studies say - UPI.com

Horse de-wormer, my a**.

Mass treatment with ivermectin, a drug that has become controversial during the COVID-19 pandemic, eliminates river blindness transmission and can reduce spread of West Nile virus, according to findings presented Thursday during the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

The drug has effectively stopped the spread of river blindness in two states in Nigeria, Plateau and Nasarawa, the first Nigerian states to achieve this distinction in a country that has the world's most cases of the disease, the researchers said.

“Effectively stopped”.

But let’s keep on mocking its use in humans.
