Plenty of activity this week to report on!
Mirror article. Who’s being conned?
We have just launched a blog section for our website with our reflections on the recent Mirror article setting up a sting on a seller ofivermectin.
BBC ‘False Science’ Article on Ivermectin
Although written under the banner ‘Reality Check’ you will have seen the BBC make yet another unfounded assault on ivermectin and reality. Journalist Jack Goodman also shows a lack of professionalism disrespecting Dr. Lawrie in his highly biased article that he claims to be based on (unavailable and unscrutinised) reports from questionable sources.
We will be responding in different ways to this and will keep you posted here and on the Telegram channel. (subscribe here)
Also we recommend you watch Dr. John Campbell forensically shred the report.

Merck Announcement on Molnupiravir treatment
BiRD welcomes all early treatment possibilities to keep covid patients out of hospital which this recently announced drug hopes to do. Full research or safety data has yet to be published or scrutinised, but we understand that the active mechanism appears very similar to that of ivermectin. At their declared 50% effectiveness rate (below the 70% rate of ivermectin) this could still be a useful way to reduce hospitalisations and deaths, though at $700 a treatment, this will exclude poorer people of the world.
We are concerned regarding the double standards of the health regulatory authorities that expedite the authorisation and purchase of new expensive treatments without adequate safety data whilst delaying the authorisation of safe cheap and off-patent medicines with established safety records. We would also like to see information on safety relating to mutagenesis caused by molnupiravir on human cells as this concern has been raised in previous research. We also note that molnupiravir is used to treat horses.
We will be following developments closely.
