So I heard too much of knee-jerk takes about #ivermectin vs. #COVID-19, so I went on the Internet and read something that looks factual: covid19treatmentguidelines.nih

So:

- It's not just a horse dewormer, it's a legit drug against some tropical diseases.
- There are lab tests showing it inhibiting the replication of the Corona virus.
- There is however no evidence of it helping in real treatments. Probably because the efficient dose would be ~100 times higher than approved for people.

Oh, that's why name rings the bell! My dad used it to deworm our house dogs.
