A cheap drug combo available OTC could have helped but probably ICMR did not take the combo seriously because its usage & success was first publicly revealed by a doc in BD. I know many Doctors in India are prescribing the drug but an official guide or suggestion from ICMR would have been better. Hopefully, usage of this combo would spread to other states as well.
UP govt directs use of drug Ivermectin for treatment of COVID-19 patients, to replace HCQ
Isn't Ivermectin the same drug which was widely used in several latin american countries ? I think Peru,Chile and Colombia used it with mixed results but most western countries stayed away from it.
