The world is working so hard to fight a deadly virus commonly known as COVID-19. More research has been developed to find a breakthrough over this virus. Now, a new treatment has been discovered by scientists to have associated with a COVID-19 treatment. However, this treatment has faced a controversial view from the US Food and Drug Administration. According to this health agency, Ivermectin is not authorised to treat COVID-19.
This is the reason why:
- Some forms of Ivermectin are used to treat animals infected by heart-worm disease and animals attacked by certain parasites.
- The drug weakens the body immune system
- It causes joint pain and swelling
Therefore, the Ivermectin has been discovered to have more harm in humans and this should not by any chance be used to treat the claimed disease.
According to FDA, Ivermectin is more used in treating animals and can cause a toxic reaction in the human body because the doses are highly concentrated.
