India Bar Association Serves Legal Notice on WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan For Lying About Ivermectin Effectiveness Against COVID-19
Dr. Soumya Swaminathan
MUMBAI — We wrote a few weeks ago about India adding Ivermectin to its COVID-19 mitigation protocols. It resulted in dramatic drops in cases and deaths. All the while, World Health Organization (WHO) Chief Scientist and India native Dr. Soumya Swaminathan used her platform to spread disinformation about Ivermectin. Her May 10 tweet implied that Ivermectin was neither safe nor effective as a COVID-19 treatment.
Now the India Bar Association (IBA) is taking action.
The organization commenced legal action against Dr. Swaminathan by serving her a scathing 51-page notice on May 25. The notice accuses Dr. Swaminathan of “spreading disinformation and misguiding the people of India, in order to fulfill her agenda.” A press release from the India Bar Association says Dr. Swaminathan “ignored studies/reports and has deliberately suppressed the data regarding effectiveness of the drug Ivermectin, with an intent to dissuade the people of India from using Ivermectin.”
