New Hampshire governor blocks pharmacists from dispensing ivermectin to treat COVID-19 without prescription
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed a bill on Friday that would have permitted pharmacists to dispense ivermectin, a parasite drug, to treat COVID-19 by means of a standing order without a prescription.
Some Americans have been turning to ivermectin to treat the virus, a cheap drug used to kill worms and other parasites in humans and animals. Health experts and medical groups have been pushing to stamp out use of the drug, warning that it can cause harmful side effects and that there’s little evidence it helps.
