In the press conference, Dr. Ozaki states in Japanes, translated into English via subtitles:
“In Africa, if we compare countries distributing Ivermectin once a year with countries which do not give Ivermectin. I mean, they don’t give Ivermectin to prevent Covid, but to prevent parasitic disease, but anyway, if we look at Covid numbers in countries that give Ivermectin, the number of cases is 134.4 per 100,000, and the number of death is 2.2 in 100,000.”
“Now, African countries which do not distribute Ivermectin: 950.6 cases per 100,000 and 29.3 deaths per 100,000,” Ozaki highlighted.
“I believe the difference is clear.”
“Of course, one cannot conclude that Ivermectin is effective only on the basis of these figures, but when we have all these elements, we cannot say that Ivermectin is absolutely not effective, at least not me.”
Ivermectin continues to be controversial, with many doctors and researchers adamant that it is safe and effective for quick treatment of COVID19, while others are not so sure. One thing is clear to me, that the many voices on social media who decry Ivermectin appear to be acting as an ill informed herd who are just parroting the mainstream narrative without really knowing if what they are saying is correct. All too often, commenters ridicule Ivermectin and when pressed are unable to offer any evidence to back up their position beyond “my daughter is a doctor”.
I first posted on Ivermectin back in April and shared various testimony and evidence from experienced pathologists and Doctors who spoke up in favour of it’s use for COVID19. I then posted again several weeks later, a video from Rebel Wisdom which attempted to create a debate on the topic between Doctors/Researchers who were both for and against it’s use. Unfortunately, I do not feel that debate really got to the core of the matter or involved people with sufficient direct experience or evidence to draw concrete conclusions.
It seems that we are getting closer to having a clear understanding regarding Ivermectin for COVID19 and more experts are speaking up in favour of it’s use. I will be focusing more on this topic in coming posts.
Wishing you well,
