(PresidentialInsider.com)- Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a law that allows people to get the COVID-19 treatment ivermectin without a prescription. The Food and Drug Administration called the treatment a “horse dewormer,” which is not all that it is.
When the FDA said that the word “ivermectin” was trending on Twitter under Elon Musk, it started a new round of attacks from the FDA.
On Wednesday, a report from Liberty Counsel said that Lee had signed a law that made the “award-winning antiviral drug” available “without a prescription” for COVID-19.
The state House had agreed to the idea 22-6, and the Senate had approved it 66-20.
Liberty Counsel said that the bill states that a pharmacist can give ivermectin to a patient who is 18 or older, subject to a valid collaborative pharmacy practice agreement that includes a non-patient-specific prescription order and standardized procedures developed and executed by one or more licensed prescribers.
That means that adults can talk to a pharmacist about their symptoms, fill out some paperwork, and then the pharmacist can give them the drug. This is what the group said.
Liberty Counsel said that the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to William C. Campbell and Satoshi Omura for their work on ivermectin. In general, ivermectin is known for its antiparasitic properties, which can help prevent COVID-19 and are especially good when used early on. The drug also has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, and studies have shown that ivermectin helps lower the viral load by stopping the virus from reactivating and spreading.
Ivermectin can kill 99.8% of the virus in 48 hours with one dose, according to a study in the Antiviral Research Journal in June 2020.
People who have used it have said that it helps them recover faster by reducing inflammation and protecting their organs.
It’s not safe or effective to give people COVID shots, but pharmaceutical companies are making a lot of money. It has been proven time and time again that ivermectin works. The goal should always be to help save lives, not make more money for Big Pharma.
Media articles and social media posts made fun of people who treated COVID-19 with the drug as ignorant rubes sneaking into farms or going to Tractor Supply stores to buy “horse dewormer.”
During the pandemic, Twitter and other social media platforms tried to stop people from talking about the effectiveness of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, even though there were a lot of stories and many studies from all over the world that said the drugs worked to treat COVID-19.
The FDA said this week, “Also, a reminder that a study found it didn’t work against COVID.”
This isn’t clear.
