Ivermectin is being researched in clinical trials, but as yet there is no evidence of its efficacy. Here is the most recent information. https://www.who.int/news-room/feature-stories/detail/who-advises-that-ivermectin-only-be-used-to-treat-covid-19-within-clinical-trials At the end of the article is a list of recommendations for therapeutics to help COVID infection.

Merck, the pharmaceutical company that produces ivermectin and who has the most to gain from its use for COVID, advises against it use until there is more evidence. https://www.merck.com/news/merck-statement-on-ivermectin-use-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/

Vitamin D
Several recent studies have looked at the impact of vitamin D on COVID-19. So far, there just isn't enough data to recommend use of vitamin D to prevent infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 or to treat COVID-19.

@bosco17 I am pretty sure it is not the moderators job to respond to your personal orders. Perhaps that conversation is a more appropriate topic between you and your medical providers. In my experience the moderators facilitate community on this site which is obviously something I struggle with with respect to everyone on this site. I am working on it but I am not there yet.
