Some are saying it is a variant of Ivomec and Hydroxychloroquine

It is. Merck had something on their web site a few weeks ago asking people to use their ivermectin on livestock and to wait for an exciting announcement coming soon for Covid. I guess this is it.

It is not. It's primary 'ingredient' is N4-Hydroxycitidine, or EIDD-1931.
It is neither a derivative or variant of Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine..
N4 works completely different than the 2 antimalarials. The 2 anti-malarial drugs work by changing how your immune system works.
N-4 works within the virus particle itself, forcing it to make mistakes (a lot of mistakes) in the genetic code it injects into the human host cells preventing those cells from replicating good copies of the original virus particle.

One has to be careful about inferring relation just because chemical names 'look' similar. The same applies to the chemical structures.
"Hydroxy" merely means there are at least 1 each O² and H atoms bound together. There are many thousands of chemicals in the hydroxy family or line.
I once saw a post stating we should "never use margarine because it's chemical formula is just one molecule removed from plastic".

In chemistry, a molecule is huge compared to an atom but that little atom can and does make a world of difference.
If one molecule is all that differentiates 'plastic' from margarine, then we better stay way the heck away from water, since a molecule of water is only 1 tiny Oxygen atom removed from one of the most volatile and explosive element in the universe. Hydrogen.
