Contrary to an ABS-CBN report, Anakalusugan Rep. Michael Defensor said he will not distribute Ivermectin that is intended for animals.

Defensor said an authorized medical laboratory will compound Ivermectin to become human grade or so it can be used to treat humans.

“Isang malaking FAKE NEWS ang pinapakalat ng ABS-CBN na ang ipinamimigay ko na Ivermectin ay isang veterinary drug,” said Defensor in a social media post.

He said no doctor will prescribe a veterinary Ivermectin to humans.

“Wala pong doktor ang mag-peprescribe ng gamot na para sa mga hayop. Masyado po atang nilang minamaliit ang mga tao na nagsasabing maaaring gamitin na precautionary medicine ang Ivermectin. Ito po ay human grade Ivermectin at nakapaloob po ang proseso ng pagbibigay sa regulasyon ng FDA (Food and Drug Administration),” Defensor said.

The solon also said that Ivermectin will be given only to those with doctor’s prescription.

“Sumusunod tayo sa batas at guidelines ng FDA. Ang iniiwasan natin ay ang unsafe, unregulated distribution ng ivermectin na kumakalat sa black market ngayon,” Defensor said in another post.

Defensor said the Ivermectin he will be distributing for free will be compounded by a laboratory authorized by the FDA.
