14. I really want to know for which conditions "countless human lives" have been saved using dewormer

At the moment I know of only a few for which it may be prescribed for humans: head-lice and scabies, and they are not usually fatal. In addition, in greatly reduced doses Ivermectin may be useful for things like Guinea worm, which is very serious, and several other parasites.

It has no use in the treatment of viruses, ever.

Ivermectin is, in fact, a livestock dewormer, and the size of doses for cattle and horses is dangerous to humans.

Altho you joined several years ago, apparently you haven’t been lurking much throughout the pandemic. Let me clue you in about where we are now.

DU has passed through the flames of overwhelming grief and has given support for attempts at education and compassionate understanding of those who will not get vaccinated, and we have come way out the other side of those flames of grief to rage at realizing most of non-vaccinated have swallowed Trump’s lies and have no capacity to accept reality.

There are nurses who experience patients so deluded that they will not accept a COVID diagnosis even when hospitalized, and waste what precious breath they have left demanding medication that will “cure” them of the “flu” — they yell at the nurses right up until the point they are intubated. Other patients find all their delusions get stripped away when they get hospitalized, and tearfully ask if they can have the vax now, only to be told it it too late for that.

There are DUers with loved ones who are among the refusniks, and there is nothing we can do about them except pray to whatever god we think will listen for the safety of these fools. And we weep for them.

There are DUers who have been exposed, who have been sick, who have been very very sick.

Chances are extremely good that COVID fatalities have been undercounted. All things considered, I think the US will lose 1,000,000 people of all ages before this is over.

We are not the enemy.
