Well, what you know - the big pro-Ivermectin trial, cited by some in favour of whacko remedies, was fraudulent with the authors making stuff up.

Real trials are still on going.
FWIW I think the seeming move towards daily testing for possible contacts, rather than isolating and lockdowns, will see better compliance and could actually help control the virus more.El Scorchio wrote: ↑Wed Jul 21, 2021 2:14 pmIt will be interesting to see what, if any feedback or learnings there are from the British GP weekend, given it was a test event for the UK. FWIW I wouldn't have felt comfortable in such a big crowd.
I think almost every country will eventually have to go through the stage the UK is going through right now which is unlocking with the acceptance that cases will surely rise, but with the question of how this affects serious illness, hospitalisation and death given the vaccination programme. The rest of Europe is very lucky they will be able to study this and learn from what works or does not work.
The sad truth is that this won't 'end' any time soon. We will just have to suppress it the best we can until better and better treatments and maybe an absolute cure could one day be made available globally. (As an aside, people treating 'freedom day' as 'Covid is over' day are absolute irresponsible idiots and putting themselves and other people in peril, but that's just my personal opinion)
