Ivermectin is a widely used drug for the treatment and control of certain neglected tropical diseases. The drug has an excellent safety profile, with more than 2.5 billion doses distributed in the last 30 years. It has proven activity against SARS-CoV-2 in vitro.
For this pilot trial we propose to test the potential of ivermectin to reduce the transmission of the virus. If the results are positive this could be quickly scaled given the known safety profile and robust drug supply.
