A doctor speaking to the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security dropped a bombshell Tuesday morning. He claims to have a prophylactic cure to coronavirus. Ivermectin is readily available, and has been used to treat Swine Flu in animals for decades.
Pierre Kory, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Medicine at St. Luke's Aurora Medical Center in Milwaukee. He told Congress that numerous studies have concluded Ivermectin completely prevents Covid-19 infection.
"And so, it is with great pride as well as significant optimism," Kory said, "that I am here to report that our group, led by Professor Paul E. Marik, has developed a highly effective protocol for preventing and early treatment of COVID-19. In the last 3-4 months, emerging publications provide conclusive data on the profound efficacy of the anti-parasite, anti-viral drug, anti- inflammatory agent called ivermectin in all stages of the disease. Our protocol was created only recently, after we identified these data. Nearly all studies are demonstrating the therapeutic potency and safety of ivermectin in preventing transmission and progression of illness in nearly all who take the drug."

It should be noted that the US FDA has already rejected the use of Ivermectin to prevent or cure Covid-19. From http://www.FDA.Gov: Is Ivermectin recommended to treat the coronavirus?
"No. While there are approved uses for ivermectin in people and animals, it is not approved for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. You should not take any medicine to treat or prevent COVID-19 unless it has been prescribed to you by your health care provider and acquired from a legitimate source."
The FDA flatly denies that Ivermectin cures or prevents Coronavirus infections. But the FDA goes on to note that "a recently published article" claims Ivermectin is effective against Covid-19, as a prevention and a cure.
