Little risk and much to gain, so get Ivermectin systems in place: experts
Accepting Sahpra’s cautionary stance, they say times are abnormal and if it’s authorised SA must be ready
Experts have asked the government to have systems lined up so Ivermectin can be distributed and used to treat Covid-19 patients if authorisation is given.
Medical doctor and activist Arne von Delft, who cofounded TB Proof, said on Wednesday: “We sent a letter to the authorities on January 18.
“We understand the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra) is overly cautious and that is how they should be, but that is for a normal context. This is a pandemic and we at least need to have the systems in place for rollout.”..
