Covid and Ivermectin - an interesting case study

| No Comments

In India, the state of Kerala has a very tourist-driven economy.  Therefore, they are catering to the wishes of the westerners coming to visit and spend money. This includes a high rate of vaccination and following the "western" protocols for Covid prophylaxis.  Other states in India, not so much.  The numbers are interesting.  Here is a three-part series in California's The Desert Review. They all have lots of links to original sources and data - the third one is where he goes into India in great detail.

From the third story: The Lesson of Kerala

The New York Times reported India’s colossal drop in COVID cases was unexplainable, while the BBC declared that Kerala’s rise was also a mystery. While new cases of COVID in Uttar Pradesh are rare as million-dollar lottery tickets, in Kerala, a tiny state located in southern India, new daily cases are the same as the United States, nearly one case per thousand. Yet, as we have seen in this series, there has been a curious media blackout on India’s overall success against COVID.

"Kerala has been reporting over 22,000 new COVID infections in the last three days. No other state in India is even close to the 10,000 mark. The COVID conundrum in the southern state has led to several questions, with no certain answers."

The Times of India published this statement on July 29. Kerala has continued to have the majority of new daily cases and almost 25% of India's daily deaths despite a population of 34 million, less than 3% of India's total population.

A bit more:

"Uttar Pradesh was the first state in the country to introduce large-scale prophylactic and therapeutic use of Ivermectin. In May-June 2020, a team at Agra led by Dr. Anshul Pareek, administered Ivermectin to all RRT team members in the district on an experimental basis. It was observed that NONE OF THEM developed COVID-19 despite being in daily contact with patients who had tested positive for the virus," Uttar Pradesh State Surveillance Officer Vikssendu Agrawal said.

Kind of hard to argue with the facts. Kind of hard to believe our mainstream media after all the bullshit they have been handing us for the last 12-15 years.  It is bad enough that they are willing accomplices to one political party in this Nation but that they lie to us and when we do not believe them, they ratchet up the volume louder and louder, more hyperbolic.  Take a step back and really read what they are saying - it is lunacy.

I think that people will look back on this time and call it: "the crazy years" or something a little more to the point.  We have gone off the rails. We need to get some adults back in the room STAT.
