Ivermectin, a parasitic insect killing drug, is proving to be very effective in the prevention and treatment of corona infections. While the Uttar Pradesh government gave this medicine to the health workers engaged in the treatment of corona infects, the Punjab government also included it in the treatment of the infected. Recently Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) has also included it in the treatment of corona infected. Research on the drug is underway in Australia (Italy) and Bangladesh (Bangladesh). However, given the side effects of ivermectin it is advisable not to take it without medical consultation.
This drug is also given in Filaria disease
Let me tell you that ivermectin tablet is used in the treatment of diseases such as black blind bite, river blindness, round worm small intestine infection, ascariasis and filariasis. It is also one of the three drugs given under the Filaria Eradication Program in the country.
Reduces the possibility of infection, reducing virus
Dr. Purnanand Jha, Corona Nodal Officer of PMCH, told that the drug test in Delhi-Madhya Pradesh found that the doctors and health workers or others who came in direct contact with the Corona infected, had to eat dinner on the first, 7th and 30th day. If two hours later, a 12mg ivermectin tablet is given, it reduces the risk of infection. After this, corona can be avoided to a great extent by taking one tablet every month. At the same time, giving corona positive patients two hours after dinner for three consecutive days with ivermectin 12mg tablet on five days of morning and evening doxycycline medication has yielded good results. This drug not only prevents the virus from reaching the vital organs of the body, but does not allow them to increase the number.
This medicine will be given to those who will be admitted soon after showing mild symptoms. Infected people who had trouble breathing, their virus load has been seen to decrease manifold in three days. This medicine should not be given to pregnant and lactating women. Ivermectin has also been found effective in HIV, influenza, dengue and zika virus.
