Governor BYPASSES Doctors With Latest Order – Media Furious!
(DailyVantage.com) – There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding acceptable treatments for COVID-19. In 2020, Ivermectin sparked several debates nationwide, and while the topic may have died down for a bit, it’s again at the forefront of discussions after Governor Bill Lee (R-TN) signed a new measure into law regarding its availability.
On April 22, Gov. Lee signed SB2188 after it passed the House with a 22 to 6 vote and 66 to 20 in the Senate. This law makes it possible for Tennessee adults age 18 and over to purchase Ivermectin, a treatment many claim works for COVID-19, over the counter without a prescription.
Ivermectin may be sold or purchased as an over-the-counter medication in this state without a prescription or consultation with a pharmacist or other healthcare professional licensed.https://t.co/3cA2rb1q00 pic.twitter.com/LdpYEU7RfJ

One of the primary reasons for the controversy surrounding the drug is the CDC’s claim Ivermectin isn’t a viable treatment for the coronavirus. Likewise, a recent study published in The New England Journal of Medicine said the drug’s use doesn’t “lower [the] incidence of medical admission to a hospital due to [the] progression of Covid-19.” However, people who have taken it believe it has helped their symptoms, and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said more research was necessary since politics impeded proper studies.
However, advocates for Ivermectin, provided by Liberty Counsel, chiefly claim the drug, known pharmaceutically for its “antiparasitic properties,” might help prevent the virus and treat early-onset symptoms.
With the bill’s passage and signing, those in Tennessee who wish to try the drug in their fight against COVID-19 will now have the chance to take it at their discretion.
