    Eight hospitals in Indonesia are set to conduct clinical trials on Iveheal 6, an anti-parasitic medicine that has appeared to be a potential Covid-19 medication, following a permit issued by the national agency of drug and food control (BPOM).

    BPOM's head Penny K. Lukito said at a press conference on Monday (June 28) that global data and guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) show that Iverheal (Ivermectin), previously used for deworming, can also be used for Covid-19 treatment. However, data are still being collected and the results are not conclusive.

    Clinical trials are expected to be conducted over a period of three months. Lukito has called on the public not to take this medicine freely considering that Iveheal 12 must be prescribed by doctors.
