Ivermectin /HCQ discussion in Hindi mainly English after TM 13.30
the attitude to HCQ/Ivermectin in India seems to be pragmatic.
Any Hindi speakers here..?
Kant and Rastogi seem to be recommending ivermectin+ doxycycline +Zn (+-HCQ.).. for prophylaxis. PEP and PrEP..
for healthcare workers, journalists, high risk patients???(>65) diabetics...
maybe treatment.. and to do prophylaxis even if the vaccine comes..
there was white paper awhile ago but use recommendations have firmed up considerably since that..
there appears to be a lot more urgency in India than in Australia.
It is rather surprising that it is so actively being used in India - I would have assumed that the same central-planning would lead to any vaccine-competitor being dissuaded from use. In this video they advocate for mass prophylaxis in many situations (zones of high infection, healthcare) and state it is very potent and safe. They have some real-world experience which suggests that the first vaccines won't work very well, and that to continue Ivermectin et al prevention. I watched about half and most of the biopharma details are already available.
