Ivermectin for COVID-19: Hero or Zero?

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic had hydroxychloroquine, which has since been debunked as being effective in preventing and treating COVID-19. This year, it’s ivermectin.

Or should it be approached with extreme caution by everyone, including healthcare practitioners and politicians? We check in with Datuk Dr Christopher Lee, Infectious Disease Physician.
