A Butler County judge ruled in favor of a woman last week who sought to force a hospital to administer Ivermectin — an animal dewormer that federal regulators have warned against using in COVID-19 patients — to her husband after several weeks in the ICU with the disease.
Butler County Common Pleas Judge Gregory Howard ordered West Chester Hospital, part of the University of Cincinnati network, to treat Jeffrey Smith, 51, with Ivermectin. The order, filed Aug. 23, compels the hospital to provide Smith with 30mg of Ivermectin daily for three weeks.
A number of taxpayer-funded state authorities would not comment on the case. But don’t worry, they won’t miss a paycheck.
The article has a graph showing the number of ivermectin prescriptions dispensed from retail pharmacies in the U.S. from March 2019 to mid-August 2021. A large spike in prescriptions started in early July 2021, leading to almost 90,000 prescriptions in the weak of Aug 13.
Some pharmacists refuse to fill ivermectin prescriptions for COVID-19.
