Doctor who discovered Ivermectin use for Covid-19 was born in SA, studied at Wits

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – At the forefront of the Ivermectin debate around the world, and the man credited with finding the “data signals” that the drug can be used to treat Covid-19, is South African-born Dr Paul Marik.

As the Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in the US, Marik has more than 30 years’ experience in a number of medical fields, including pharmacology, anaesthesiology and critical care.

Marik was born in Johannesburg and received his medical degree from the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits).

“It was the best medical school in the world,” said Marik.

He was an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) attending physician at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, and when he moved to the US he did a Critical Care Fellowship in Canada. Since 1992, has worked in various teaching hospitals across the US.

A respected author, Marik has written more than 400 peer-reviewed journal articles, 80 book chapters and authored four critical care books. He has been cited more than 35 000 times in peer-reviewed publications.

Currently, Marik and pulmonary and critical care specialist Dr Pierre Kory are heading up a non-profit organisation called the Front-Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), where together with a group of experts they develop effective treatment protocols to prevent the transmission of Covid-19.

The group discovered that Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine, has highly potent anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties against Covid-19.
