Tamil Nadu had the infamous distinction of leading India in new COVID-19 infections as of May 18, 2021.
"With 33,059 cases reported in the last 24 hours, Tamil Nadu (TN) is leading the state list," reported an article published in the Business Standard. “May 19 was to be worse with 34,875 new infections, again with the dubious distinction of being number one in India.”
The Indian Express reported yet a further daily record increase to 35,579 of new TN infections as of May 20. Tamil Nadu has outlawed Ivermectin use for COVID, which may explain their horrific rise in new COVID infections.
Meanwhile, cases in Delhi continue to fall as they douse their COVID flame with Ivermectin. As of May 19, 2021, Delhi's infections had plunged 87% from 28,395 on April 20 - when they began using Ivermectin - to just 3,846.
They began using Ivermectin when AIIMS announced adding Ivermectin to COVID-19 outpatient treatment, something my group, C19, has been calling for in the US since Dr. George Fareed, Dr. Peter McCullough, and Dr. Harvey Risch testified on November 19, 2020, to the US Senate. The trio advocated early outpatient treatment of the type Dr. Fareed and his associate Dr. Brian Tyson have used to save almost 6000 patients in California's Imperial Valley.
This fell on deaf ears. Dr. Pierre Kory reiterated this plea on December 8, 2020. The NIH upgraded their guidance from "against Ivermectin" to "neutral," meaning neither for or against. The FDA remained firmly "against."
Had the NIH or FDA provided EUA or Emergency Use Authorization, fully 300,000 US lives would have been saved as a conservative estimate.
However, what we could not do for America, we proposed doing for India in our newest plea contained in the book, Ivermectin for the World. Released on May 1, 2021, the book called for every reader to pray, protest or pressure their governments and representatives to urge India to adopt Ivermectin -for mass prevention, outpatient, and inpatient treatment to ease their COVID crisis - on humanitarian grounds.
The readers were influenced and have responded with massive assistance. I thank them.
Acknowledging that the ICMR and AIIMS had already added Ivermectin to their outpatient treatment protocol on April 20, 2021 with noticeable improvements in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, a joint statement was issued by the FLCCC and the Evidence Based Medical Consultancy on May 3 urging the immediate adoption of Ivermectin for prevention and treatment of COVID-19 by India and the world to put an end to the pandemic.
India's officials heard this message and acted further.
The states of Goa, Uttarakhand, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu agreed to adopt Ivermectin. Goa led the way on May 10 with the announcement that every man and woman over 18 would receive 12 mg of Ivermectin daily for five days irrespective of COVID status. The world was finally moving in the right direction. Thank God!
Thank God, until an atheist and new Chief Minister, MK Stalin, took power on May 7, 2021, in Tamil Nadu and proclaimed that Remdesivir would replace Ivermectin as their drug of choice. Now Tamil Nadu's cases are diverging from the states that chose Ivermectin.
Goa's cases have dropped 62% in just nine days since announcing the Ivermectin policy - from 3124 down to 1204. The other Indian Ivermectin states have also enjoyed a substantial decrease in new infections. By contrast, Tamil's citizens face an ascending escalator of cases bringing untold misery and mortality to this southern Indian community, which begs the question - When will Tamil Nadu hear the message that Ivermectin saves lives? When will the rest of humanity take heed?
