There are indications that ivermectin, an active ingredient in anti-parasitic veterinary medicine, is being used in the prevention and treatment of Covid-19 and people are currently rushing to Swavet, the wholesaler of veterinary drugs in Windhoek to buy it despite there being no confirmatory data on its use in the management of Covid-19 infections.
