The epidemic in the United States has worsened, with a rapid increase in cases and a cumulative death toll of 645,000. Americans are beginning to be rushed to the hospital.
According to the “Washington Post” report, the number of confirmed cases of new crown in Mississippi in the United States has surged, but many people have used veterinary antiparasitic drug Ivermectin as a “new crown drug”, which has caused one person to be poisoned by this. Hospitalization.
On August 20, the state health department stated that the state poison control center received more and more calls for help after taking ivermectin to treat the new crown, and it warned people not to continue taking the drug. The state’s epidemiologist Paul Byers said that at least 70% of recent calls for help were related to the intake of ivermectin purchased at the livestock supply center.
On the 21st, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (FDA) posted on social media, “You are not a horse, and you are not a cow. Seriously, you should stop (taking ivermectin).” Previously, the FDA, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the World Health Organization (WHO) have clearly warned people not to use ivermectin to treat the new crown. Merck, the manufacturer of ivermectin, also stated that it does not support the safety and effectiveness of the drug for the treatment of the new coronavirus.
Why are Americans so stupid to use veterinary drugs to treat new coronary pneumonia? It was originally from conservatives. Huo’s News Network host Tucker Carlson, Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Jensen and others have been advocating the effectiveness of ivermectin in the treatment of new crowns since March this year. Canadian virologist Angela Rasmussen said that ivermectin is like the “new hydroxychloroquine” (hydroxychloroquine was originally an antimalarial drug, and it is the “magic drug” for the new crown pneumonia that Trump has promoted. Stopped by the WHO).
The Washington Post pointed out that on August 20, Mississippi in the United States reported more than 5,000 confirmed cases of new crowns, bringing the average number of new cases in seven days to 3,586. As of the 21st, more than 1,600 people have been hospitalized due to the new crown infection, and about 450 intensive care unit beds have been full.
The increase in COVID-19 cases also affects children in the state. Currently, more than 20,000 students have been quarantined due to exposure to the COVID-19 virus, accounting for 4.5% of public school students.
The report pointed out that Mississippi’s vaccination rate is only 36%, ranking second last in the United States. The state’s health official Thomas Dobbs said that the state’s serious “health crisis” was caused by the “tsunami” of infections among the unvaccinated people-nearly 90% of the COVID-19 hospitalized patients and 86 % Of patients who died were not vaccinated.
Although the residents of this state are not too cold to the new crown vaccine, they are very popular with the veterinary drug ivermectin and believe that the drug has the effect of treating or preventing the new crown.
Paul Byers, an epidemiologist at Mississippi State University, wrote in a letter to the state’s health network alert that at least 70% of recent phone calls and ingestion of Ivery bacteria purchased at livestock supply centers Prime related. Byers said that 85% of people who called the Mississippi Poison Control Center said they had mild symptoms.
Some symptoms of taking ivermectin include skin rash, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, nervous system disorders, and severe hepatitis that may require hospitalization.
Byers said, “Veterinary drugs for large animals are highly concentrated and may be highly toxic to humans. Patients are advised not to take any drugs used to treat animals.”
Public information shows that Ivermectin is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug, which is widely used in gastrointestinal nematodes, lung nematodes and parasitic arthropods in cattle, sheep, horses and pigs, intestinal nematodes in dogs, ear mites, and scabies. Mites, heartworms and microfilaria, as well as poultry gastrointestinal nematodes and ectoparasites.
Ivermectin is also used by humans, but its dose concentration is significantly lower than that of the veterinary version, and there is no evidence that it has an effect against the new coronavirus.
Moreover, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (FDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the World Health Organization (WHO) have already issued documents warning people not to use ivermectin to treat the new crown.
Even Merck & Co., Inc., the manufacturer of ivermectin, has made it clear that it does not support the safety and effectiveness of the drug for the treatment of the new coronavirus.
However, even though many authoritative organizations have repeatedly clarified the efficacy of ivermectin, they still have not blocked the “enthusiasm” of some Americans for this drug.
According to reports, Makenna LaFond, who works at Sierra Feed & Saddlery, a horse product store in Reno, Nevada, said that she always has to keep reminding those who are trying to buy veterinary ivermectin to treat or prevent new crowns. Customer, “No, that’s not for you. This is for a 1,100-pound horse.”
“Then, they will still buy about six sticks of medicine.” Lafang said.
“Washington Post” reported that the discussion around ivermectin largely stems from those who oppose vaccination and wearing masks on social media. They claim that ivermectin can cure diseases and after taking the medicine. “Basically there are no symptoms.”
In addition, some conservatives are also constantly advocating the so-called “curative effect” of ivermectin.
According to the report, from March to August this year, Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham during prime time The show promotes ivermectin as an alternative treatment for the new crown to millions of viewers. The three hosts are all conservative political commentators.
In June of this year, Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin uploaded a video on YouTube promoting the use of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to treat the new crown. The video has been removed from YouTube.
The phenomenon of incompetence will continue to be repeated in a society of political superstition.
