The Independent Patriots for Change (IPC) Chief Patriot, Dr. Panduleni Itula, has advised government to legalise the use of Ivermectin to treat the rampaging scourge of Covid-19.
This comes after 31 doctors last week petitioned the ministry of health for approval of the drug which is used on humans and animals for parasite infestation.
Itula’s briefing which was live-streamed comes hours before the President is expected to also brief the nation on the escalating Covid-19 crisis which seen government officials and civil servants being hospitalised.
“Under these circumstances, it would be politically correct to advance the idea to our doctors, to use every mechanism that they think within their scientific ethical principles that they will be able to treat their patients to prevent the spread of the disease or rather to prevent them from succumbing to the disease.
“This is not a situation where politics must now triumph, this is a situation where we need to think logically as citizens, as people that belong to the human race to be able to stamp the death that is now knocking at the doors of almost every single house,” he said.
