3000-5000  is not cheap, the government can’t even take care the Thai people. Don’t you think the government able to take care the foreigners? Once a foreigner is sick, the hospital will dig all your funds out. Stay safe, everybody.

$AUD250.......not at all cheap.....and the test results are accurate?

Many, many things will kill the virus.  The trick is to find one that doesn't kill the patient as well.

Good point, this drug was fully approved some 30 years ago for human beings, taken by many people in many countries and very few and limited side effects recorded.

 

And yes it's also an approved veterinary medicine.

Why does it cost between 3,500 and 5,000 baht?   There is one test only so either it cost 3500 or it cost 5000

I remember there were Thai doctors giving HIV drugs which they said was effective. Some HIV coctails contain Ivermectin also. This was forwarded to WHO, but nothing is heard of it being tested further. This is not new news, they also gave SARS patients this cocktail back then, and they said they had some success. Not sure how true it is, but wouldn't be surprise if it works. Shouldn't be bad if administer in correct dosage.

The professor who was interviewed on TV news here in Australia mention your points.  She also mentioned that many drugs had some success with SARS and the speed/extend of new infections reduced fairly quickly and the drugs being tested were never explored properly.

 

Yesterday on the ABC news here in Sydney a journalist asked the national chief medical offer to comment on the news about re Ivermectin. He quickly commented that he had seen the interview and he had followed up quickly to offer whatever support might be helpful to the researchers in Melbourne and he hopeful that approval would come quickly to start live testing.

 

On another news channel another research professor also spoke positively re Ivermectin and also mentioned that so far it's seen as a possible treatment but a vaccine is still needed urgently.

For the SARS drug, I read that the virus went away quickly before pharmaceutical companies saw a need to develop the a drug for it as it was not profitable. It seems like it would be good for organizations like WHO or government to support the development of these drugs.
