Ivermectin continues to be rubbished and/or ignored by govt, media and our health “authorities” – including the NZ Medical Council and the NZ Ministry of Health.

Below is an excerpt from The Journal of Antibiotics.
Perhaps we can help bring it (and the HUNDREDS OF OTHER STUDIES showing the efficacy of ivermectin) to their attention.
The suppression of non-toxic remedies must stop. Now.
Ivermectin: enigmatic multifaceted‘wonder’drug continues to surprise and exceed expectations
(SNIP) Antiviral (e.g. HIV, dengue, encephalitis)Recent research has confounded the belief, held for most of the past40 years, that ivermectin was devoid of any antiviral characteristics. Ivermectin has been found to potently inhibit replication of the yellow fever virus, with EC50values in the sub-nanomolar range. It also inhibits replication in several other flaviviruses, including dengue, Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis, probably by target-ing non-structural 3 helicase activity.97Ivermectin inhibits dengue viruses and interrupts virus replication, bestowing protection against infection with all distinct virus serotypes, and has unexplored potential as a dengue antiviral.98 Ivermectin has also been demonstrated to be a potent broad-spectrum specific inhibitor of importinα/β-mediated nuclear trans-port and demonstrates antiviral activity against several RNA viruses by blocking the nuclear trafficking of viral proteins. It has been shown to have potent antiviral action against HIV-1 and dengue viruses, both of which are dependent on the importin protein superfamily for several key cellular processes. Ivermectin may be of import in disruptingHIV-1 integrase in HIV-1 as well as NS-5 (non-structural protein 5)polymerase in dengue viruses.99,100
Antibacterial (tuberculosis and Buruli ulcer) Up until recently, avermectins were also believed to lack antibacterial activity. However, in 2012, reports emerged that ivermectin was capable of preventing infection of epithelial cells by the bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis, and to do so at doses that could be used to counter sexually transmitted or ocular infections.101In 2013,researchers confirmed that ivermectin was bactericidal against a range of mycobacterial organisms, including multidrug resistant and extensively drug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the authors suggesting that ivermectin could be re-purposed for tuberculosis treatment. Although other researchers found that ivermectin does not possess anti-tuberculosis activity, the results were later shown to be non-comparable due to differences in testing methods, with the original findings being confirmed by further workin Japan.102–104 Unfortunately, the potential use of ivermectin for tuberculosis treatment is doubtful due to possible neurotoxicity at high dosage levels. Ivermectin was also reported to be bactericidal against M. ulcerans,105 although other researchers found no significant activity against this bacterium.10

Bottom line: Ivermectin works and is apparently an ionophore, like hydroxychloroquine. That means it allows the cells to absorb zinc which helps stop viral replication.
Now, the question becomes “Why would governments NOT want to use it”? Well, some have, like some states in India, where the pandemic was virtually halted as a direct result.
This wonderful news has not yet made it into mainstream which continues to demonise non-vaccine remedies.
Sadly, the corruption runs so deep that many people have trouble fathoming it. But one point to remember is that the “vaccines” could not legally have gotten emergency authorisation if remedies like ivermectin had been acknowledged.
