The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which mocked Americans for taking Ivermectin to treat Covid-19, now says their campaign telling people to “stop” taking it was informal and just a recommendation, according to an argument made by government lawyers during a recent hearing.
“The cited statements were not directives. They were not mandatory. They were recommendations. They said what parties should do. They said, for example, why you should not take ivermectin to treat COVID-19. They did not say you may not do it, you must not do it. They did not say it’s prohibited or it’s unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin,” Isaac Belfer, one of the lawyers, told the court during the Nov. 1 hearing in federal court in Texas according to the Epoch Times.
“They use informal language, that is true,” Belfer continued, adding “it’s conversational but not mandatory.”
Yet, in 2021 the FDA created a web page titled “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19,” before then tweeting: “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”
