Did the Pasteur Institute in France confirm that ivermectin is an effective drug against COVID-19?
Find out what they really discovered!
Claim : Pasteur Institute Confirmed Ivermectin Effective Against COVID-19!
This message is being shared on WhatsApp, claiming that the Pasteur Institute recently recognised the effectiveness of ivermectin against COVID-19.
It also claimed that because of the Pasteur Institute’s findings, ivermectin has been re-approved for use against COVID-19 in the European Union.
Truth : Pasteur Institute Only Tested Ivermectin On Hamsters!
This is yet another FAKE STORY about ivermectin and its efficacy against COVID-19.
The truth is the Pasteur Institute did NOT recognise ivermectin as an effective treatment or prophylaxis against COVID-19.
Fact #1 : Pasteur Institute Study Was Conducted On Hamsters!
The Pasteur Institute study DID NOT actually recognise ivermectin as an effective drug against COVID-19 in humans, because it was conducted on hamsters, not humans!
Fact #2 : Ivermectin Did NOT Reduce COVID-19 Viral Load!
The fake story claimed that a single dose of ivermectin was shown to “eradicate all SARS covid-19 genetic material“. That’s nonsense.
The Pasteur Institute study only showed that :
- Ivermectin reduced inflammation in the respiratory tract of hamsters, with reduced symptoms.
- Ivermectin reduced risk of loss of smell in hamsters.
- Ivermectin did NOT have any impact on the viral replication of SARS-CoV-2.
In other words – the Pasteur Institute study showed that Ivermectin did NOT reduce the SARS-CoV-2 viral load!
The chief author of the study, Guilherme Dias de Melo said, “Surprisingly, we observed that treatment with ivermectin did not reduce viral replication; the models that received treatment had similar quantities of viral load in the nasal cavity and the lungs as those that did not receive treatment.”
Fact #3 : Pasteur Institute Called For Clinical Trials In Humans
Guilherme noted that, “Our results reveal that ivermectin has an immunomodulatory effect rather than an antiviral effect. These data provide crucial evidence to support clinical trials in humans”.
The Pasteur Institute stated that their study showed that for clinical trials in humans should proceed. It did not demonstrate or prove that ivermectin works against COVID-19 in humans.
Fact #4 : Ivermectin Was NEVER Approved For Use Against COVID-19
The fake story claimed that ivermectin was just “re-approved” for use against COVID-19 in France or the European Union. That’s completely FALSE.
Ivermectin was NEVER approved by any major health authority, including the WHO, CDC, FDA, EMA or the TGA, for use against COVID-19. Never mind getting “re-approved”…
Fact #5 : Vaccines Have Been Proven Safe + Effective Against COVID-19
The truth is vaccines have been proven through very large clinical trials to be SAFE and EFFECTIVE against COVID-19.
On the other hand, ivermectin has not been proven to improve clinical outcomes or prevent transmission.
- June 2021 study in The Lancet : No improvement in symptoms or clinical outcomes with triple-dose ivermectin
- February 2021 study in The Lancet : No difference in transmissibility with double-dose ivermectin.
That is why the WHO and the vast majority of health authorities around the world DO NOT advocate using ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19.
Fact #6 : Vaccines Cheaper + Easier Than Ivermectin
Antivaxxers claim that vaccines are being promoted for profit, but the truth is – there are MUCH LARGER PROFITS to be made through the FLCCC ivermectin protocol!
The FLCCC’s recommended I-MASK+ ivermectin protocol costs more than two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, after one month.
On top of that, their I-MASK+ ivermectin protocol requires you to take 5-6 pills every day for as long as the COVID-19 pandemic lasts, while most COVID-19 vaccines only require two doses.
Unscrupulous doctors are also charging exorbitant fees to prescribe ivermectin, while COVID-19 vaccines are generally offered for FREE in most countries!
