Doctors can now prescribe the following tablets as treatment for corona

The light is now close to the end of the tunnel as more tools are found to battle the novel corona virus, that has changed the daily lives of citizens. The Gauteng High Court located in Pretoria has given a green light to doctors to prescribe tablets containing ivermectin as a treatment for corona.

It is understood that this is not a sorely approval, but has been accompanied by an agreement between civil rights organization AfriForum and Pretoria East Doctor to prescribe the above tablets.

This court order establishes that the regulator registered a medicine containing ivermectin as an active ingredient in March. The registration has the effect of allowing ivermectin to be compounded and made available in accordance with the provisions of the Medicines Act.

This tablet is known to contain a powerful ingredient that shows no mercy in viruses and has been listed as schedule three substance.This tablet can now be consumed for more than what it was stated on the registered medicine's label (off-label use), which includes the treatment of Covid-19.

The regulator stated unequivocally that ivermectin had not been approved for the treatment of Covid-19. It maintained that the drug could not be prescribed or dispensed without a Section 21 authorization.
