South Africa: Ivermectin for Covid-19 - Compound may be made up on prescription from doctors

Ivermectin may now be used in South Africa for the treatment of Covid-19. That is the upshot of a settlement agreement, made an order of court, in four applications against the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra).

In terms of the agreement, the anti-parasitic drug can now be “compounded” and prescribed legally for the treatment of specific patients.

Doctors no longer have to use the “compassionate use” programme, initiated by Sahpra earlier this year, in which doctors had to apply through the authority’s Section 2 “compassionate use” programme (for unregistered medicines) for permission to use the drug to prevent and treat Covid-19.

According to the order, signed off by Pretoria High Court judge Cassim Sardiwalla, Sahpra has to report back to the court every three months, detailing any developments in the use and availability of the drug.

It is believed the order came about after Sahpra approved the use of ivermectin in a cream to be used for skin conditions.

This approval meant the drug was now officially registered in SA.

The order states pharmacists and doctors are permitted to make up small batches of medicine containing ivermectin on prescription by a doctor and in small quantities.

The court applications were brought by general practitioner George Coetzee with AfriForum, the ACDP and Doctors for Life, a group of pharmacies and the “I can Make a Difference” group of medical practitioners.

In terms of the order, Sahpra will contribute almost R2m to their legal fees.

So, the last country on earth that still makes Quaaludes doesn’t make Ivermectin?

- Finally. Why is Ivermectin not approved?
- Because it does not leave revenue to anyone, it does not generate returns, you cannot make partisan discretion with it, and nobody can win an election by applying it, or buy a yacht with its dividends.

Thanks for that link.

FTA....

Regarding the IVER.CAR Protocol as a prevention method, which uses Ivermectin and Carrageenan , the effectiveness reached 100%, taking as a parameter 1,195 Health Agents from different hospitals who participated as volunteers. In this context and more than a month after the last interview, Dr. Carvallo was consulted again.

What responses did you get from all of them and especially from ANMAT?
- These are the news that do not arrive, despite the actions of protection and criminal complaints that we promote for criminal negligence. ANMAT continues to approve drugs and treatments that are not applied in first world countries characterized by high epidemiological surveillance, which do not have even one twentieth of the scientific evidence that has been demonstrated with Ivermectin, but they still do not approve it. We had the hope that with the pandemic the ANMAT would demonstrate a bit of height in its mission, and that at least once in 100 years it would act according to the circumstances, but we were too optimistic.

- You seem pessimistic about the efficacy of vaccines ...
- On the contrary, I wish you all the best of success, but the results will only be seen hopefully in 2022. “Here and now”, -as the National Director of ANMAT Dr. Manuel Rodolfo Limeres said-, the only thing that works is Ivermectin ”. Too bad that after this statement he forgot his words or repented, -although they were recorded-.

- Finally. Why is Ivermectin not approved?
- Because it does not leave revenue to anyone, it does not generate returns, you cannot make partisan discretion with it, and nobody can win an election by applying it, or buy a yacht with its dividends.

FWIW I got that from this guy on Twitter:

https://twitter.com/Covid19Crusher

I don’t maintain a Twitter account, but I look in on that guy’s feed every so often, it’s worthwhile. Many of the links in my Ivermectin text block came from him. I’m actually amazed he hasn’t been booted from Twitter for Covid heresy.

Great resource.....he posts his source/studies, etc.
