The #Ivermectin story in #Malaysia with regards to its usage in treating #COVID19 patients has taken a new twist !!
Now just to put things in context.. remember #COVID19 raging in #India just a month back.. with thousands of daily deaths, open cremation & bodies thrown into the Ganges.. article below is on 24th May 2021..
Yet within #India .. where individual States have authority to decide on health matters.. Some chose to use #Ivermectin for #COVID19 .. some chose not to.. And the results were pretty staggering !!
