Judge orders hospital to treat Ohio Covid patient (Jeffrey Smith) with ivermectin

A judge in Ohio ordered a hospital to treat a Covid-19 patient with ivermectin, despite warnings from experts that the anti-parasitic drug has not proved effective against the virus and can be dangerous in large doses.

Gregory Howard, a judge in Butler county, outside Cincinnati, ordered doctors at West Chester hospital to administer ivermectin to Jeffrey Smith, 51, who contracted Covid-19 in July and was transferred to intensive care.
“My husband is on death’s doorstep,” Julie Smith wrote in court documents. “He has no other options.”
