The state government of Goa in India announced a mass Ivermectin distribution campaign to treat and prevent COVID-19 on May 10, 2021. Health minister Vishwajit Rane said health expert panels from UK, Italy, Spain and Japan have found a reduction in death of COVID-19 patients treated with Ivermectin. The number of active COVID-19 cases started dropping on May 14.
The state government of Tamil Nadu in India reached a different decision on May 14, 2021 to drop Ivermectin in its approved medicine to treat COVID-19, citing the decision by WHO. Chief Minister MK Stalin announced replacement of Ivermectin by Ramdesivir. Active COVID-19 case counts continue to climb.
This is a drastic contrast.
