ACDP champions Ivermectin vaccine for South Africa

Published on

The ACDP has used its Twitter page to encourage the government to introduce the Ivermectin vaccine to South Africans, as it continues to highlight its reported benefits and share statistics. 

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) took to Twitter on Tuesday, 4 May 2021, to continue its advocacy for the government to adopt the Ivermectin vaccine as the primary vaccine in South Africa. Currently, the country is using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as the primary vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine as the supplementary vaccine. While the EFF has championed vaccines from BRICS countries such as Russia and China, the ACDP has now found a vaccine it believes would be most effective in the country.

According to a statement shared by the party, “Ivermectin is currently used for about 20% of the world’s population. Countries where COVID-19 mortality is close to zero may not have incentive to adopt treatments. When excluding these countries, Ivermectin adoption is about 27%. We excluded countries where the cumulative mortality over the preceding month was less than 1 in 1 million, according to the data at Our World Data. For the estimated population coverage, isolated use, some regions, mixed usage, and many regions use a factor of 0.05, 0.25, 0.5, and 0.75 respectively.”
