    Which is better, $700 pills that can be taken anywhere, or $2,000 infusion treatments that are given at infusion centers or other medical facilities, or vaccinations that help prevent infections or reduce the severity of the disease (and deaths) at a fraction of these prices?

    I presume most doctors follow FDA guidlines and therefore presume most doctors do not prescribe Ivermectin for COVID-19. For those who do, what is your basis for saying they should prescribe human doses to treat the virus? At present, there is no proper-research evidence that Ivermectin works...

    The person I know telling others to take horse medicine is not a doctor. He is a former friend of mine who advocates it on his Facebook page, where I saw it, and presumably elsewhere. He was using my Facebook feed to advocate the practice too, until I blocked him. When I called him out for...

    Your points are valid and you state the challenge regarding experts exactly. Namely, "The problem is where you get your information from experts and how much credence you give the experts." When I say "expert" and you say "expert" it's very possible we may have two completely different people...

    Forgive my sarcasm above. It's just that I get frustrated by the misinformation and what sometimes seems to be intentional ignorance demonstrated on social media and in face to face conversations I have with various people. As with cancer, heart disease, AIDS, the flu and other illnesses, there...

    That's not a regimen I would prescribe for COVID-19, but I think the case can be made that it would be at least as effective as some of the solutions you seem keen on.

    Well, since you put it that way, why use just one backup regimen? Since we're covering as many bases as we can, lets run several regimens. Penicillin is a long-used drug that is not harmful. Maybe we should combine a shot of two of that with a anti-malaria injection (also approved for human use...

    Certain COVID-19 vaccines and monoclonal antibody treatments help with COVID-19. The companies that developed the vaccines and treatments now widely used in the U.S. are listed below. Presumably, the people who own these companies (the shareholders) own the vaccines and treatments. Vaccine...

    That's true. The danger from ivermectin and the thing that is sending people to poison control centers is they don't know what you know about this drug. They don't understand the dosage difference for humans and horses. They don't understand that the other stuff that is in ivermectin medicine...

    Correct, but people's responses to the virus are both political and social. Thus the political and social COVID-19 issues. Agreed Agreed

    Credibility is in the eye of the beholder. I find it helpful to recognize that COVID-19 is a medical issue, social issue and political issue. And I find it helpful to note that just because someone has letters after one's name, or has a big name, he or she in not necessarily a bona fide expert...
