The Namibia Medicines Regulatory Council (NMRC) has said that it is maintaining its position not to recommend the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 as there is still no scientific evidence to advocate for its use. “Until new evidence is available, the NMRC maintains its position not to recommend the use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 as there is currently insufficient evidence in support of ivermectin’s use for this purpose,” NMRC Registrar Johannes Gaeseb said. However, the Medicines Regulatory Council says that a provision in the Act for the Control of Medicines and Related Substances provides for the temporary compounding of an ingredient such as Ivermectin by approved professionals provided that all records, including particulars of patients, the scripts and dosages are kept on file.
