    Yet another bit of media scaremongering to say its worse than Delta , its still being studied .

    Im getting pee'ed off the the continual labor party lies & denials over their stuff ups
    Turns out they had ASKED Pfizer to delay sending out vax's . Look where thats got us now, a month + wait & not enough vax's to meet demand.

    “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”

    That is the message from the US Food and Drug Administration after reports emerged people were using Ivermectin to treat Covid.

    The drug, which is often used to treat or prevent parasites in animals, has been touted as a potential treatment for Covid by right-wing commentators. Last year, we heard similar comments about hydroxychloroquine – but there was no evidence this was effective in treating the virus.

    Ivermectin is primarily used to treat people with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. There is also concern from medical officials that people are using Ivermectin that has been designed for large animals – and people may be ingesting huge doses of the drug.

    Doctors have warned of the dangers of quack cures after a Sydney man was rushed to hospital after self-administering Ivermectin.

    Craig Kelly has regularly spouted Covid misinformation on his social media.

    “Thankfully he didn’t develop severe toxicity but it didn’t help their Covid either,” Associate Professor Gunja said.

    “There’s no evidence to support the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19. Don’t look for magic cures online, and don’t rely on what’s being peddled on the internet, because none of them work.”

    But that hasn’t stopped Right-wing groups pushing the drug as an alternative treatment.

    In the United States, far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos shared four images on Telegram over the weekend that suggested he had Covid and had injected himself with ivermectin.

    The ivermectin bottle in Yiannopoulos’ photos had imaged of a cow and a pig on it and was marked: “For veterinary use only.”

    Yeee god’s there’s some nutters out there. HERE

    Years ago we used to inject 1000kg Bulls with it.

    The injection went between the skin and the meat underneath so you had to pull the skin out and get the needle just under it.

    I don’t know how many times I got the needle in my finger having got the needle under the skin but out the other side. (I'll never have worms)

    I hope these nutters do it the same way.

    We used a paste on the horses, much simpler.

    There's a picture of a clueless woman on facebook going round.

    that i agree with, they are mad. just like at the start when people started drinking methanol to kill it (for those who don't know methanol will kill you in a fairly unpleasant way).

    the devil is in the detail. with death rates you need to factor in all the preventive measures. to measure a virus true kill rate you need no preventive measures, which no country has done, therefore that data does not exist. even 3rd world countries still have doctors that save lives, people do social distancing themselves. this all influences the final numbers. if you can't account for those measures then your data is incorrect and your conclusions will be incorrect.
    This. Why don't people treat facts in this way?
