Ivermectin article from BBC News ‘full of basic medical science mistakes’

Dr Steven van der Merwe, a Simon’s Town GP, has raised objections to a previous article in MedicalBrief regarding Ivermectin.

Van der Merwe writes:

Thank you for always giving us such interesting news. I would, however, like to alert you to that very poor BBC article on Ivermectin (Medical Brief 13 October).

If you look at an analysis of the article by medical analyst Dr John Campbell, on YouTube, you'll see that it was very poor journalism indeed, quoting a very poor scientific article and full of very basic medical science mistakes.
