So we see the pamphlet reported only the hospitalization and deaths of those who were given outpatient treatment initially (mild severity of infection) and ignores those who were hospitalized. Total numbers hospitalized were actually 427 and 38 died, a far, far worse result than 16 hospitalized and 1 dead.

In 99.3% of the outpatients who were treated with Ivermectin, the establishment of early treatment (on average 3.6 days from the onset of symptoms), was effective since the infection did not progress, they did not merit subsequent hospitalization and had no deaths.

The mortality of the severe to critical patients hospitalized in the ICU was similar to that reported in the international literature of 30.9% versus 30.6% in the patients of the present study.

Total mortality adding up outpatients and hospitalized patients treated with Ivermectin was 1.2%, well below the average 3% reported in most series and overall mortality worldwide, by the time of completion of this study.
