There’s a newly-proposed bill in New Hampshire would make the state the first in the nation to approve ivermectin as an over-the-counter treatment for COVID-19.
“HB 1022, introduced by Republican state Rep. Leah Cushman, permits pharmacists across New Hampshire to dispense the medication with a standing order. Ivermectin, a renowned anti-parasitic drug with anti-viral properties that data shows can effectively treat coronavirus, currently requires a doctor’s prescription for COVID-19,” Life Site News reported.
Making the drug more widely available would save lives, Cushman, a registered nurse, told The Epoch Times. “I have absolutely no doubt lives will be saved if human grade Ivermectin was available to COVID patients,” she said.
“The representative added that she expects her bill, which has seven other GOP co-sponsors, to clear the New Hampshire Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs Committee and pass the lower chamber. Republicans control both the state House and Senate. The bill would take effect 60 days after passage.”
New Hampshire lawmakers previously supported a bill to ban COVID vaccine mandates and passports by government entities, which Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law in July 2021. Other legislation advancing in the statehouse would prohibit private businesses from enforcing vaccination requirements.
‘This should be an option’ – thi is what all the studies have proven.
“U.S. regulators have baselessly attacked ivermectin as the drug has gained prominence as an alternative COVID-19 treatment, however. Ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) List of Essential Medicines and has been administered to people more than 4 billions times with virtually no serious side effects,” according to the WHO.
“Last year, National Institutes of Health (NIH) upgraded its recommendation of ivermectin, allowing it as a treatment option for COVID following advocacy by Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCCA), an organization of physicians who care for COVID patients and advocate for therapeutic protocols that include ivermectin. Nearly 2,400 physicians have endorsed the FLCCCA’s protocols,” according to the the group’s website.
Dr. Paul Marik, founding member and chairman of the FLCCCA, testified in support of HB 1022 this month before the New Hampshire House health committee.
