Scientists are now searching for the drug Kovid-19, following the vaccine, amid growing cases of corona worldwide. In this direction, the scientists were getting a great success that there was a bottleneck in this as well. Recently, during a review of a study led by the front-line Kovid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), scientists described a drug called 'ivermectin' as highly effective against Kovid-19 infection. Not only this, on this basis, the Government of Goa had also approved the use of the drug in the state on Monday.
However, now the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued an alert regarding the use of this medicine. Let us know why the WHO has such a position regarding the medicine which scientists were considering so effective?
World Health Organization warns
The World Health Organization has issued an alert on Tuesday about the common use of 'ivermectin'. WHO's lead scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has said in a tweet that it is important to keep safety and efficacy in mind when using the drug for any new disease. In addition to clinical trials, it is not appropriate to use ivermectin for covid patients in general.
Significantly, this is the second WHO warning in the last two months on the use of ivermectin in Kovid-19. Earlier in March, the health organization said in a statement that there was no firm evidence that ivermectin use could reduce the risk of hospitalization or death of kovid infectives.
Drug manufacturer also made a warning
Merck, a manufacturer of ivermectin similar to WHO, has also warned of its use in Kovid-19. A statement from the company said that our scientists are investigating its facts and related studies at every level regarding the effect of ivermectin in Kovid-19. We have not found any meaningful evidence regarding the efficacy of the use of this drug in Kovid-19 patients so far. Kovid-19 seems to have protective deficiencies in all the studies conducted so far on the effect of this drug, so it should not be used for the time being.
Goa government approved the use of the drug
Earlier on Monday, the Goa government approved the use of ivermectin in the state. After this, WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has issued a warning on Tuesday. On Monday, the Goa government issued a new 'Kovid Treatment Protocol', stating that over the age of 18 years of Kovid patients can be given ivermectin for treatment. Health Minister Vishwajit Rane had said that the use of this medicine in many countries has seen a rise in the speed of recovery of patients, so this drug can be used in the state as well.
The drug was found effective in many studies
During a review of a study led by the front-line Kovid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), scientists had reported that ivermectin drugs could be highly effective in preventing the worldwide corona epidemic. Scientists considered this drug to be very effective in the treatment of Kovid-19 and used it with immediate effect throughout the world. "We have done a comprehensive review of the available data for ivermectin medicine," said FLCCC President and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pierre Corey. Based on the reviews and data studies done at several levels, we can say that the use of ivermectin drug can prove to be helpful in ending this severe epidemic of coronavirus.
Medication is effective in many other infections
Experts have found this drug to be quite effective against a wide range of viruses such as HIV, dengue, zika, and influenza. Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic drug already approved by the Food and Drug Administration in India for use in a wide range of infections.
