Recommended Posts

All Covid patients will receive the antiviral drug Favipiravir, AKA Avigan, says the Public Health Ministry. In fact, the government is planning to stockpile 420 million tablets. Yesterday, the Department of Medical Services announced that health officials can administer the drug to all groups of Covid patients. Before yesterday’s announcement, green coded patients with mild to no symptoms that were under home isolation/community isolation only got the Fah Talai Jone herb as a treatment. It should be noted that Fah Talai Jone has dubious empirical evidence that suggests it’s effective against combatting Covid. However, Dr Kiattiphum Wongworajit, who is the permanent […]

Well if it is the Thai one you are waiting for it will probably be more useful as an anal spray given their miniscule list of innovation. However hopefully other countries will develop one that is truly effective.

the "lack" of scientific merit may be (guessing) due to Mainstream media suppressing the use of a cheap patent-expired, any pharma can produce, even generics, can't make a few billion off it....like they suppressed Ivermectin

I think if one was sick with COVID-19 and at risk of dying due to symptoms that were getting increasing worse, one would consider any medicine known not likely to make their health much worse.

My hope is we see massive advances in medicine to treat this virus and not have to only rely on only vaccines, isolation, masks, fitness, healthy eating and cleanliness. This global pandemic is very ugly and globally disruptive and we need every protection and recovery method we can get.

Agree. Desperation and present-time personal experience can cause you to consider options you may have been actively against in the past. Long term desires and considerations may be overtaken by the need to apply a solution now, even if the benefits are in dispute.

I am not talking about the hard-core believers at either end of the spectrum of a debate. It is a waste of time trying to change their opinion. Doing so, only makes them more stubbornly attached to their beliefs. It is the ones on the fringe of the hard-core ends of the debate that may change. They are more likely to change their position from feverish debate against, to personal use of, a previously disregarded option.

Serious illness to oneself or even death of a family member or other loved one can cause that for those on the fringe. The hard-core will never give up.

Three days ago FLCC issued an updated version of their FLCCC Protocol for Covid-19 treatement in which IVERMECTIN has a key-role.

And here a link on how to get hold of Ivermectin in Thailand.

Also note that your immune-system is the key to dealing with covid, and strengthening it will make all the difference.  Then if you catch covid - which is bound to happen, sooner or later - your natural immune-system will take care of it, with the additional benefit that such natural immunisation is far superior than the vaccine-induced one, and without any of the potential dreadful jab side-effects.

Fair comment and thanks for this, your debut post!

Hello, ShibaBud and welcome to ThaigerTalk
