Ivermectin & Treating COVID-19

Dr. Peter McCullough

Dr. Peter McCullough is an internist and cardiologist at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Also, a professor of medicine at Texas A&M College of Medicine. He led a group of international experts and published the first guidance for doctors on treating COVID-19 as an outpatient in the American Journal of Medicine.

He updated his paper with new information as it became available. As a result, these papers are the most frequently downloaded documents by doctors for treating COVID-19 patients.

He has presented his information for the “Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., and interviewed with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson.

Since the pandemic started, he has published 46 papers on Covid-19 and is one if not the foremost authority on COVID-19.


Ivermectin is already an FDA and WHO-approved drug. In 2015 a Nobel prize was given to William C. Campbell and Satoshi Omura for the discovery of ivermectin and its impact on curing diseases. Clinical studies show that it is an effective treatment for COVID-19 by inhibiting the replication of the SARS-COV-2 virus. Dr. McCullough references 60 clinical trials that produced a 70% reduction in mortality.



Ivermectin has been used for three decades in humans. Billions of people worldwide have taken this ivermectin to eliminate many tropical diseases. Here is a summary of ivermectin trials in combating COVID-19.


FDA Ridicule

So the real question is why is this treatment being suppressed, and further why is this drug treatment being ridiculed by the FDA in a tweet?


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

(FDA Tweet — 8–21–2021)

The FDA tweet linked to an FDA propaganda page discouraging Americans from Ivermectin. That page, as of today, is still up.


This is one example of our government, our FDA, who is lying to the American people and actively suppressing valid COVID-19 treatments. Why? In my opinion, to allow for a EUA for the experiment mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

Disinformation on Ivermectin Still Abounds

No one reading the clinical studies can knowledgeable state that ivermectin ought not to be used to treat COVID-19. But that is exactly what continues today.

If you would like to see additional data on the effectiveness of Ivermectin against Covid-19, go to these two websites:




In a study from Iran, 28,000 outpatients, 25% were treated with HCQ 200mg twice daily for five days. Results, when compared to untreated, were 30% fewer hospitalizations and 60% fewer deaths

As a final example, when Peru implemented ivermectin treatments, the country realized a 14 fold decrease in COVID-19 deaths. When a new president took office and restricted the use of Ivermectin on November 17, 2020, Peru’s death rate increased 13 fold.


After you digest all the evidence on ivermectin, go back and read the FDA tweet on ivermectin again. Think how Facebook, Youtube, and social media are actively suppressing the evidence and usefulness of this effective treatment for COVID-19.

Republican GOP Joins the fight to use ivermectin for COVID-19

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is supporting the right to use ivermectin for treatment for COVID-19.

He said the efforts used to suppress ivermectin as “dishonest” and compared these tactics as ones used by the tobacco industry to dismiss the health risks of smoking.
