The Andrew Hill / University of Liverpool meta-analysis has now gained the attention of the mainstream media in the United Kingdom, with the Times reporting: “Ivermectin: Tests show cheap drug may reduce Covid-19 death toll” (subscription required) and the Daily Mail headlining “Cheap hair lice drug may cut the risk of hospitalised Covid patients dying by up to 80%, study finds“.
The Times reported:
