Brief Summary:
Ivermectin is currently being utilized by a number of physicians in the local area. My objective will be to enroll these patients at the time of their evaluation for COVID-19 infection and to follow their progress through their recovery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Covid19 COVID-19 Pneumonia COVID-19 Respiratory Infection COVID-19 Acute Bronchitis Drug: Ivermectin

Detailed Description:
Patients at local physician clinics as well as my own clinic will be enrolled at the time they are evaluated for having COVID-19. Patients enrollment will be voluntary and based upon their request for treatment with Ivermectin. These patients will be questioned on symptoms and the timing of those symptoms in detail. They will then be followed throughout their treatment course to evaluate their recovery experience. Detailed accounts of their symptoms and their resolution will be followed. The study patients will stop being followed when they are either admitted to the hospital or are deemed to be symptom free. Any other medications prescribed to the patients will also be tracked. Medical histories will be taken and documented to make comparisons at the end of the study. Those patients not requesting Ivermectin will also be followed for comparisons at a later date.
