Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare Tamura replied in the Diet that "it can still be used for off-label use. There is also a way to take (ivermectin) at a medical institution and wait at home."

Huge success in a dozen other countries have been reported for months, nearly reducing the death rate to nothing... using medication that's out of patent and basically free.
What is the source for that?

What? We won't tell you if it doesn't work?
If it doesn't work, no notification will be issued.
