The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ruled today that doctors are allowed to start Ivermectin treatment concurrently with the submission of an application to the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority for the use of the drug. Newsf;ash reports that an agreement was reached between several parties, including Afriforum and the authority before the order was made. A spokesperson for Afriforum, Barend Uys, says this gives doctors the opportunity to make the call if the patient urgently needs the medication.
