Twitter Suppresses Massive Study Showing Ivermectin Reduced COVID Mortality by 68%

A massive pre-print study released in December showed that low preventive dosages of ivermectin, taken every two weeks, reduced mortality by 68%. This apparent good news was not welcomed by Twitter, which immediately moved to censor the paper, slapping it with a “Misleading” warning label without explanation. The study, involving 220,517 subjects, was conducted in the Brazilian city of Itajaí, where all of the citizens were invited to participate. Its objective was to measure the impact of regular ivermectin use against COVID-19 infection, severe symptoms, and mortality rates in a real-world setting.
