It’s bizarre that you’d need to treat a non-existent disease at all.
Or if you do admit that it exists, but that it’s a super minor thing that’s “not even as bad as the flu”, also why treat?
If it’s just flat out kidnapping and murder under the guise of “Covid”, then why is Lin Wood’s ass still walking around. He’d be pretty high on my list before the several tens of thousands of regular citizens…
I don’t know if it’s the study you mention, but one of the early studies that got some people excited about using Ivermectin to treat COVID has been retracted because, basically, the author made everything up.
Yeah no, they’re not the traditional Conservative Party. Economically, they’re Koch libertarians, and socially the religious fringe right has a lock on too many riding associations. The only Red Tories left are fools or pretend ones like Erin O’Toole.
Like the Republicans, they can’t be trusted to be in power, which is awkward since the NDP is failing to position themselves as an alternative ruling party. Eventually people will get tired/bored of the Liberals, and the Conservatives will get in again. Disastrously.
I didn’t mean ideologically, I meant the Conservative voters themselves. Kind of like how the Reform party fractured conservative vote in the 90s. It seems to be happening again with parties like PPC and Maverick capturing folks with more extreme views, like (ugh) Wexit. O’Toole isn’t helping the Conservative Party one bit, which I’d be happier about if the PPC wasn’t there to scoop up the folks he’s losing.
Thanks for the link. There are quite a few studies I’ve been linked to and many of them aren’t in the US or Europe, but South America and IIRC Asia. Oxford is in the middle of a large study which might shed light on its effectiveness or not.
I don’t think I have enough information to claim if it is complete bunk or not. As someone else said, if the makers of Ivermectin can prove it has an effect, you can bet your bottom dollar they would be promoting its use. But since they aren’t, yet, I don’t think it is going to turn out to be more effective than a placebo. I am just open to the medical community researching it, but not people self medicating/experimenting.
There are a lot of annoying “historical facts” that become popular knowledge, that turns out not to have been true. Like Nero Fiddling as Rome burned, or Marie Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake.”, or that Han didn’t shoot first.
The myth that people in the Middle Ages thought the Earth is flat appears to date from the 17th century as part of the campaign by Protestants against Catholic teaching.
To be fair, this was European protestants, but Americans carried on with the idea that medieval people used to believe the earth was flat, and of course, the predominant power in Europe during the middle ages? The Catholic Church.
