Ivermectin is a who-listed essential medicine but banned in South Africa. Why? Eustace Davie

Do the politicians and the medical scientists who have banned, and supported the ban on the importation and use of ivermectin in South Africa, take full responsibility for the deaths of people who die and could have been saved if they had not been denied access to ivermectin?

The two individuals who bear primary responsibility for the imposition of the ban are the Minister of Health, Zweli Mkhize, and the CEO of the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA), Boitumelo Semete-Makokotlela. On their decision and consciences rests the potential death of people who could have self-treated on ivermectin or been treated with Ivermectin at home, in a clinic or by their own medical doctors.
