#According to a group of researchers from the #Center for #Studies in #Pediatric #Infectology (CEIP), the intake of ivermectin does not contribute to reducing the days on which symptoms related to contracting covid-19 appear, reported the newspaper #El #País de #Cali.

CEIP’s scientific director, #Eduardo López, told #El #País that the studies were carried out by providing doses of the drug of 1.5 drops per kilogram of the recipient over a period of five days. #However, the scientist said there was no significant difference in the number of days that people had symptoms of the disease after being part of the sample. “The people had mild symptoms that decreased slowly over 11 or 12 days and we had very similar reactions ”, added López, this within the two stages of the study that consisted of a sample of 400 people: half were given placebo and the others the drug dosage.

Therefore, he stressed to the #Cali newspaper that there is not enough evidence to recommend the use of #Ivermectin for mild symptoms of #Covid-19 in the first days of infection.

#Despite this, López affirmed that they cannot be so radical in stating that the possibility of using the drug is closed, since studies with different methodologies are still going on all over the worldTherefore, he recommends waiting for the results to give a final verdict on its effectiveness.

The mayor of #Cali, #Jorge #Iván #Ospina, was one of the main defenders of this drug as an alternative to face the symptoms of covid-19. The last time he spoke about the issue was on #December 15 with #Blu #Radio, where he stated that he said it as a doctor, “I insist on the possibility and opportunity of ivermectin ”. #He also added that he uses it.

#He explained that as time passed, studies continued to prove that this was the case. “That’s why I didn’t want to get into that debate any more because I think it could be excessive, but I have many colleagues who with ivermectin, prophylactically, have managed to save lives. #In that sense, the debate was even brought forward in the #United #States #Congress itself, ”he told #Blu #Radio, although he did not specify what investigations he was referring to.

The end of the year measures in #Cali

The mayor, through his #Twitter account, announced that “from #December 31 at 6 a.m. to #January 4 at 6 a.m. the #Pance #River will be closed, it is impossible for us to allow the traditional agglomeration at the end of the year ”. The president recalled that said tributary can become the meeting point of up to 40,000 people who receive each year with a pot ride, a luxury that the city cannot afford in 2021.

#With the same end, #Ospina said that the typical popular festival, held every #January 1 in the #Ulpiano #Lloreda neighborhood, of #Comuna 13, is also postponed until a new date; and the dry law is extended from #December 31 at 5 pm to the same time slot on #January 2. #Similarly, continuity is given to the peak and ID, the curfew and the prohibition of any event or meeting in public spaces.
