    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Discussion of scholarly papers published on Ivermectin, starting from the article of Caly et al. in Antiviral Research, available online April 3, 2020, and of some news that we can find about the use of this drug for the treatment of Covid-19. A list of clinical trials is also given. The proposed discussion was made in a series of versions from 14 June to&amp;nbsp; 29 July 2020.&amp;nbsp; Here an update (September 8). For what concerns scholarly papers, we report among them two preprints in MedR&amp;chi;iv. One,&amp;nbsp; posted on 10 June,&amp;nbsp; concludes that Ivermectin was associated with lower mortality during treatment of Covid-19.&amp;nbsp; The other preprint, posted on 8 July, is showing the result of a clinical trial. This preprint tells, in its conclusions that add-on use of Ivermectin is giving better results when compared to controls, in particular a significant shorter hospitalization. A preprint, posted in Research Square on July 14, is reported too. This preprint is giving the result of a trial regarding the combinations Ivermectin-Doxycycline and Hydroxychloroquine-Azithromycin. Among news, we consider especially the news regarding the use of Ivermectin in Peru. The case of Iquitos is discussed in detail.&amp;nbsp; Epidemic data in this region are considered. News displaying the observation of rare symptoms of Covid-19, is also reported in detail. The observation was related to a large set of patients in Lima. The update (8 September 2020) is given in Appendix B.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
    <description descriptionType="Other">Before reading this work, please consider that I am not a physician. I do not suggest the use of ivermectin. I am not touting this drug. This analysis of publications and news about ivermectin is made in the framework of a wider investigation about information concerning drugs used for Covid-19.</description>
