The fight for ivermectin broke out in the Czech Republic. It not only interferes with events on social networks, but also affects politicians, doctors and even the media. It is often the case that the drug works against covid, although researchers point to missing data to support this claim, or that the drug is a field for pharmaceutical companies looking to get rich in vaccines.
There is even a widespread picture on the Internet that the side effect of ivermectin is cheap treatment for covid. According to some voices, “seasoned and corrupt pharmacies are not suitable for shopping”, and for example, MP Lubomír Volný has already made it known that the solution to a coronavirus pandemic is not vaccination, but also the use of ivermectin.
One of the leading Czech media does not hide its uncritical support of ivermectin, and today an article was published on the server in question, which claims that the recent studied, which did not confirm the efficacy of ivermectin, was sponsored by covid-19 vaccine manufacturers, although sponsors played no role at all in the study itself.
And it is said. But B is missing, and for some mysterious reason, he won’t get space in the media or in the ranks of the conspirators. Ivermectin has been patented by Merck & Co., which is not only supported by the Bill Gates Foundation, but also has long-term cooperation with some of the current manufacturers of covid vaccines.
Therefore, if the unnamed server mentions that the study by Colombian researchers was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson or GSK, for example, it would be fair to point out, in the interests of fairness, that the same companies are cooperating with the original drug manufacturer. And not only that.
The conspirators are reluctant to hear that
In 2002 on the server Wall Street Journal An article was published, which is still relatively easy to find. He noted that the Gates Foundation is an investor in Merck & Co., Pfizer Inc., Johnson & Johnson and many others.
Although 19 years have passed since then, not much has changed in relations. It was published on the Gates Foundation website about half a year ago declaration, where a number of companies have committed themselves to combating the covid pandemic. Among them are again Merck & Co., as well as Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, but also AstraZeneca or Gilead, which produces remdesivir, or Eli Lilly, which is behind the antibody drug bamlanivimab.
The above information will not be pleasant for some of the public believing in misinformation. There are people who believe that the covid’s pandemic is artificially caused by financial magnates, or even by Bill Gates himself. But although Microsoft co-founder has long warned of a possible pandemic of an unnamed disease, no connection to the coronavirus situation has ever been established.
So it remains only in the minds of people who believe that the powerful have their interests, and humanity does not fit them. It is no secret that such people often resort to the belief in ivermectin, which is supported by both some media and the statements of doctors.
However, it is not based on either the studies or the claims of, for example, the manufacturer himself. He did he pointed outthat there was no evidence of an association between ivermectin and covid treatment. Despite this, ivermectin is popularly purchased in the only form available in our country, namely in the form of a paste used to treat horses. However, we are not the only country where a similar mania has taken place.
They have similar experiences in the USA. However, the local authorities, unlike ours, have already responded and issued warnings against self-treatment. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even he pointed outthat several people had to be hospitalized after self – treatment with ivermectin for horses.
The facts speak for themselves
There is no doubt that every reasonable person would want a covid cure. Most of us no doubt long for a quick end to the pandemic and a return to normal life. But this will not happen by a miracle or a snap of a finger. There have been several promising drugs in the past, but they have failed after studies.
And that’s exactly what properly conducted and double-blind studies do. To find out if the drug really helps or if it can’t even harm. Ivermectin has not been studied in these studies and its efficacy cannot be refuted or confirmed.
Doctors thus operate on the principle of “drowning stalks catch”, which can be understood at a time of a deadly pandemic. But although some of their experiments have met with positive results, the question is whether it is right to allow people with often zero medical education to find it themselves or to recommend its distribution to GPs.
But neither the media nor politicians can answer this question. Medical and scientific matters should continue to be the sole responsibility of doctors and scientists and, where appropriate, of the competent authorities which cover them. After all, we also entrust car repair to car mechanics and software development to IT experts. Why should we behave differently in the case of science and medicine?
However, it is human nature to form one’s own opinion on things, but today, more than ever, it can also influence public opinion. But this is often not based on facts, but on assumptions. How else can conspiracy theorists’ comments praising ivermectin and condemning vaccines be understood when the first thing that pops up on a drug patent holder’s website is its support for the vaccine company?
Where did the faith in experts go?
In a tense time, emotions wander to everyone, but all the more it is necessary to give priority to the facts, and preferably to the verified ones. Non-physicians should not be treated, non-scientists should not evaluate scientific studies, as none of them belong to the relevant groups of people without proper education.
A similar idea has already been developed by immunologist, biochemist and professor of pathology Zdeněk Hel. “In the Czech Republic, it is necessary to establish a purely professional institution that will provide the results of scientific analyzes and objective proposals for solving problems. The institution must be independent of the government,” he wrote on twitter.
It is necessary to establish a pure professional institution in CR, which will provide the results of scientific analyzes and objective proposals for solving the problem. The institution must be independent of the government. Its recommendations will be public and the answers of the relevant government bodies will be public.https://t.co/3PD5Ftsipm– Zdenek Hel (@HelZdenek) February 22, 2021
But what any non-scientist can do is realize that neither pharmaceutical companies, nor Bill Gates, nor scientists who seek a cautious approach to the inexperienced, or doctors who do not reach for the first product that is being claimed are the enemy of the current situation. . That enemy is the coronavirus.
And the fact that scientific and pharmaceutical companies will unite in the fight against a common enemy is perfectly fine, although it is necessary to mention for the sake of completeness that the cooperation of many of the above-mentioned companies began before covid-19 appeared. At the time, their drive for HIV treatment was their driving force.
But humanity has always made the greatest progress when it came together. The most expensive project in the world, the International Space Station, which was created only thanks to the cooperation of many states, flies above our heads. In France, ITER is born, an extremely expensive megalomaniac project backed by the cooperation of 35 nations. And the covido pandemic required a number of collaborations. Therefore, let’s not look for conspiracy theories behind each of them.
And let’s believe that if a miracle cure really appeared, few would dare to keep it to themselves. On the contrary, it would immediately get into the sights of the whole world. But how do you explain that developed western states are still approaching ivermectin with a cold head, while one of the largest Czech political promoters of this drug refuses to comply with the measures, incites demonstrations and eventually ends up in the hands of the police? And why wouldn’t the manufacturer or Bill Gates support ivermectin in the fight against covidid if the “bad farmballs” were really just about getting rich?
In conclusion, perhaps all that remains is to add: We really want to live in a world where politicians will wear doctors medicines for horses, and where will hospitals and doctors have to defend themselves why they do not treat patients with medicine for animals? If so, the conspirators supported by the non-scientific media are doing a good job.
