Lawmakers distribute ivermectin but ask recipients to sign waivers

SAGIP Party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta and Anakalusugan Party-list Rep. Michael Defensor distributed the controversial ivermectin to senior citizens in Quezon City as a possible “cure” for the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) but at the same time made them sign waivers that they “voluntarily availed” of and “freely” accepted the anti-parasitic drug.
