Country defends the use of the drug in the early stages of the disease

With 2,420 confirmed cases, 87 deaths and 2,254 patients recovered until 07/12, Cuba has stood out in the fight against the pandemic of the new coronavirus.  The Central American country has been using low doses of hydroxychloroquine to treat Covid-19 at an early stage. 

The country’s residents have also followed the control measures established by the state health system.

We are aware of the controversies surrounding this product. Doctors here in general have a good opinion of the results achieved, as long as they are used early in low doses and only in patients without comorbidities, which can be complicated by hydroxychloroquine – said consultant to the president of BioCubaFarma, Augustin Lage Davila.

In addition to hydroxychloroquine, five other drugs are being used to treat the new coronavirus. Davila lists recombinant human interferon alfa-2b, which combines alpha interferon and gamma; biomodulin T; the CIGB-258 peptide and the humanized monoclonal antibody Itolizumab. Some of them were used to treat dengue and cancer.

BioCubaFarma is a Cuban organization in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Three medical brigades composed of 11 collaborators were sent from the country to work in Equatorial Guinea, São Tomé and Príncipe and Sierra Leone.

Stark madness to ban ivermectin

Buried in the note is the real reason for making ivermectin inaccessible – the fear that persons taking it ‘may elect not to be vaccinated as part of the national Covid-19 vaccination program’. This is outrageous. When someone is infected with Covid, it is too late to bother with vaccination. They need early treatment. To deny it to coerce them into accepting a vaccine, one of whose side-effects is death, is immoral.

Australia’s TGA Bans GPs from Prescribing Ivermectin

Australia’s medicine and therapeutic regulatory, the Therapeutic Good Administration (TGA) recently took the gloves off with Ivermectin, the economical anti-parasitic drug associated with at least 63 completed clinical trials involving SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19. Now TGA formally places a national prohibition on off-label prescribing of ivermectin to all general practitioners. A comparable move as to what TGA did with hydroxychloroquine in 2020. Clearly further evidence of tightening encroachment of the critically important doctor-patient treatment relationship allowing consent to medical treatment using off-label medications. Of course, this isn’t occurring in a vacuum—it’s part of an unfolding, integrated and what have the signs of a coordinated and orchestrated government action to stop any and all treatments other than those the government declares acceptable.
