Comparison of 200 patients treated with ivermectin + doxycycline and 200 treated with HCQ + AZ. The HCQ + AZ group had more severe cases at baseline. Viral clearance was faster with ivermectin + doxycycline, however ivermectin clearance results are only shown for days 5 and 6 and HCQ+AZ results are only shown for days 11 and 12. Results are unadjusted for differences between the groups.

Introduction: The whole world is on the brink of collapse
due to the outbreak of COVID-19 with no solution to treat
these cases with any specific drug. Extensive search for the
Vaccine or effective treatment is going on while alarming
infection and death toll is rising every day.
Aim: The study will compare the effect of Ivermectin with
Doxycycline and Hydoxychloroquine with Azythromicin on
a selective group of COVID -19 positive patients.
Method: This is a comparative study that included 400
patients of COVID 19 positive patient who were divided in to
two groups. Group- A Received Ivermectin with Doxycycline
and the other group- B received hydroxichloroquine(HCQ)
Result: Viral clearance is 132 ( 66%) on day 5 and 167(
83.5% ) on day 6. Among them 33(16.5%) remain PCR
positive after 6th day of Ivermectin ingestion in Group A.
Whereas there is154 ( 77.0%) viral clearance at 11th day and
Late treatment is less effective
