Why Sale Of Illegal Ivermectin Is Prohibited

KKM clarified that ivermectin is an anti-parasitic drug that was approved by the US FDA for the treatment of a few tropical diseases like onchocerciasis, strongyloidiasis and helminthiasis.

There are currently over 30 ivermectin products registered in Malaysia, and they are all only used in animals.

KKM reasserts that there is no concrete evidence to recommend the use of ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19.

The WHO currently recommends that ivermectin be used only in COVID-19 clinical trials, where patients are closely monitored by specialists and researchers to investigate its safety and efficacy.
