In the Summer of 2021, Medical Officers in India decided that they had seen more than enough to know what did and did not work with COVID, and as cases surged, embarked on a strategy to shut it down with Ivermectin and Doxycyclin.

They did it.

India’s success will be a stunning revelation to many who have consumed Western media, but the facts speak for themselves.

I’ve provided a graph of daily cases in India. For contrast, I’ve also provide the same chart for the United Kingdom, which took a very different strategy than India.

India versus United Kingdom COVID-19 cases Vaccines versus Ivermectin

April 03, 2020. AUSTRALIA. Researchers in Australia led by Dr. Kylie Wagstaf announced that Ivermectin killed COVID in vitro. Ivermectin had a long history of use in humans with over 4 billion doses administered.

July 19, 2020. INDIA. Scientists publish a “White on Ivermectin as a potential therapy for COVID-19.”

“A group of senior doctors with vast clinical experience met on 19th July’20 under the aegis of Academy of Advanced Medical Education. The panel looked at Ivermectin, one of the old molecule and evaluated it’s use in COVID 19 (Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019) management. After critical panel discussion, all the attending doctors came to a conclusion that Ivermectin can be a potential molecule for prophylaxis and treatment of people infected with Coronavirus, owing to its anti-viral properties coupled with effective cost, availability and good tolerability and safety.”

August 4-8, 2020. INDIA. India announces that they are replacing Hydroxychloraquine with Ivermectin. “New Protocol Ivermectin to replace HCQ in treatment of Covid patients.  Sources in the government said that the decision to replace Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with Ivermectin was taken after encouraging results in Agra, where it was used on an experimental basis.  Sources said that the medicine proved effective in not only in the treatment of Covid-19 patients but also in preventing large scale infection among frontline health workers engaged in the treatment and handling of Covid-19 patients.  ‘There were a lot of issues with HCQ. Therefore, we have now been instructed to instead use Ivermectin as per the prescribed doses.'”

February 4, 2021. MERCK, NJ. Merck put out a statement discouraging the use of their drug Ivermectin. Ivermectin has been “off patent” since 1996. Merck’s statement said: “our analysis has identified:

“No scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against COVID-19 from pre-clinical studies”. (Obviously there was a scientific basis, their disclaimer “from pre-clinical studies” is misleading and inappropriately discouraging).

“No meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with COVID-19 disease,” (relying on clinical studies that they wouldn’t fund themselves to defend against volumes of successful anecdotal information and medical expert testimony from all over the world).

“A concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.” Acknowledging that some of the studies did include safety data but making it sound dangerous.

Late February 2021: INDIA. COVID starts to increase in India. Please refer to the graph below for the events that followed, including the action India took against the World Health Organization.

India COVID-19 cases Ivermectin

May 7, 2021. INDIA. COVID surges in India. India decides to take action.

Desert Review: “On May 7, 2021, during the peak of India’s Delta Surge, The World Health Organization reported, “Uttar Pradesh (is) going the last mile to stop COVID-19.”  The WHO noted, “Government teams are moving across 97,941 villages in 75 districts over five days in this activity which began May 5 in India’s most populous state with a population of 230 million.” The activity involved an aggressive house-to-house test and treat program with medicine kits.  The medicines comprising the kit were not identified as part of the Western media blackout at the time. As a result, the contents were as secret as the sauce at McDonald’s.” (Ivermectin and Doxycycline).

May 10, 2021. INDIA. Indian Bar Association: India’s State Health Minister of Goa announced that all adults in Goa would be given Ivermectin based on conclusions of expert medical panels. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, a Chief Scientist for the World Health Organization, followed the announcement of the health minister with a tweet “@WHO recommends against the use of Ivermectin for #COVID19 except within clinical trials https.” The Indian Bar Association said that Dr. Swaminathan included a link in her tweet to the Merck statement of February 4, 2021, discouraging Ivermectin use. They said she should have known better than to blindly follow the suggestion of a company with a financial conflict of interest: “You have intentionally ignored the fact that Merck, which is the manufacturer of Ivermectin may have a conflict of interest in issuing the said statement against the use of Ivermectin in treatment of COVID-19 as mentioned in para 4, since Merck is in process of making its own COVID-19 drug and hat clinical trials for the same are in progress.”

May 11, 2021. INDIA. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan tweets:

May 16, 2021. INDIA. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan gave an interview to a journalist in India where she discouraged the use of Ivermectin. The Indian Bar Association highlighted a few sentences of her interview: “Ivermectin , Remdesivir and all of these, the evidence does not support its use,…”.   “There is no evidence that they have any impact on the disease progression so I would rather spend those resources on giving people good quality masks to wear.” (Remdesivir is another story and I caution against it).

May 25, 2021. INDIA. Indian Bar Association files a legal notice against Dr. Soumya Swaminathan of the WHO.

“Running a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin by deliberate suppression of effectiveness of drug Ivermectin as prophylaxis and for treatment of COVID-19, despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data compiled and presented by esteemed, highly qualified, experienced medical doctors and scientists.”

June 14, 2020. INDIA. Desert Review. “…on June 14, 2021, new cases had dropped a staggering 97.1 percent, and the Uttar Pradesh program was hailed as a resounding success.”

August 6, 2021. INDIA Desert Review. “On August 6, 2021, India’s Ivermectin media blackout ended with MSN reporting. Western media, including MSN, finally acknowledged what was contained in those Uttar Pradesh medicine kits. Among the medicines were Doxycycline and Ivermectin.”

August 25, 2021. INDIA Desert Review. “On August 25, 2021, the Indian media noticed the discrepancy between Uttar Pradesh’s massive success and other states, like Kerala’s, comparative failure. Although Uttar Pradesh was only 5% vaccinated to Kerala’s 20%, Uttar Pradesh had (only) 22 new COVID cases, while Kerala was overwhelmed with 31,445 in one day. So it became apparent that whatever was contained in those treatment kits must have been pretty effective.”

September 12, 2021. INDIA Desert Review. “By September 12, 2021, Livemint reported that 34 districts were declared COVID-free or had no active cases. Only 14 new cases were recorded in the entire state of Uttar Pradesh.”

October 10, 2021. UNITED KINGDOM.

BBC: “Ivermectin: How false science created a Covid ‘miracle’ drug.” “The health authorities in the US, UK and EU have found there is insufficient evidence for using the drug against Covid, but thousands of supporters, many of them anti-vaccine activists, have continued to vigorously campaign for its use.”

India versus United Kingdom COVID-19 cases Vaccines versus Ivermectin

I think it’s pretty obvious from the graph what is “false science” and what isn’t. False science is Disinformation from the likes of BBC. In another article I will discuss some of the Disinformation efforts of the United Kingdom against Ivermectin.
