Another politiko is coming forward to support the use of Ivermectin amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III took to Twitter to call for public access to Ivermectin, believed by some people to help prevent and treat the dreaded coronavirus disease.

According to Pimentel, Filipinos should be allowed to use the medicine to help treat parasite infection.

Ivermectin tablets are currently approved by regulators for treatment of parasitic worms in animals.

“PH should allow authentic human grade Ivermectin to be available in the country so Filipinos can have access to this medicine for the purposes it was created. a medication used to treat many types of parasite infestations esp in the stomach,” Pimentel tweeted on Wednesday, April 7.

“We should have access to this med!” the senator said.

Pimentel tested positive for coronavirus disease last year and has recovered from the illness.

His latest support for Ivermectin comes despite the warnings issued by the Department of Health and the Food and Drug Authority against the use of the anti-parasitic drug on humans. Taking large doses of the drug could be dangerous and could cause serious harm, according to health authorities.
