No, COVID-19 patients in Malaysia CANNOT request to be treated with ivermectin in hospitals!
Find out what’s the new ivermectin claim, and what the FACTS really are!
Why People Think COVID-19 Patients Can Request For Ivermectin?
Recently, people discovered that the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) allows off-label use of ivermectin in hospitals.
Unfortunately, this led people to falsely claim that COVID-19 patients in Malaysia can now request to be treated with ivermectin.
Here are some examples (with our English translation) :
The Ministry of Health is allowing hospitals to use ivermectin “off-label”, meaning for purposes beyond what has been decreed. This is a huge step forward. Those patients who want ivermectin can ask for it.
MOH now allows special off label use for patients who are interested in using ivermectin.
For now, this is only for hospital patients and patients who #request, not for general treatment and home quarantine.
This requires the consent of both parties.
Those in the hospital, don’t be shy to ask. I hope supply is enough.
KKM benarkan off label use khas untuk pesakit yg berminat untuk guna IVRMCTN.
Buat masa sekarang, ini hanya untuk pesakit hospital dan pesakit yang #request sahaja bukan rawatan umum dan quarantine rumah.
Hendaklan dapatkan persetujuan kedua-dua pihak.
Yg di hospital tu jangan malu-malu minta. I hope supply is enough.
COVID-19 Patients Cannot Request For Ivermectin In Malaysia!
Those viral messages are all FALSE!
COVID-19 patients in Malaysia cannot request to be treated with ivermectin in hospitals.
On 10 July 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Health denounced those viral messages as FALSE. Here is our English translation :
The content of the viral post is found to be false.
For your information, the off-label use of ivermectin for COVID-19 treatment in Malaysia is only for clinical studies. Not at the request of patients in the hospital.

Untuk makluman, penggunaan ivermectin secara off-label untuk rawatan COVID-19 di Malaysia pada masa ini adalah dalam kajian klinikal sahaja. Bukan atas permintaan pesakit di hospital.
Currently, COVID-19 patients with mild or moderate symptoms (Stage 2-3) are being enrolled in the Ivermectin Treatment Efficacy in COVID-19 High-Risk Patients (I-TECH) trial that is being conducted by the Institute for Clinical Research (ICR).
We should point out that ivermectin is not approved for human use in Malaysia, and that the illegal illegsale of ivermectin is subject to a massive fine of up to RM 50,000, and/or up to 5 years of jail.
