Chloroquine Protocol Changed Due to Society's Outcry, Says Secretary

Source: Folha (Brazil)


Mayra Pinheiro cites 'need to serve less favored population', but admits that there is no evidence

May.21.2020 2:14PM

The government expanded the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to mild cases of the novel coronavirus due to a clamor from society, said the Health Ministry's secretary of management in health work. Mayra Pinheiro coordinated the preparation of the new document.

"The motivation for making this document comes from the need for a response to the population. We have more than 18 thousand deaths in Brazil, more than 327 thousand deaths in the world, and there is a cry from society that comes to the Ministry through medical societies, popular representations, and parliamentarians asking for a formal demonstration," he said.

Using a mask with the Brazilian flag and the SUS logo, Pinheiro tried to justify the measure by stating that the population had difficulty accessing the medicine.

"In Brazil, for Brazilians of a certain social class, there is the right of a medical prescription for these drugs, and for a less economically favored layer, there is a limitation of access to these medications."

2. It is incredibly bad medicine to prescribe dangerous substances

to panicky people just because some dumb fuck politician is pushing the idea.

Some of them will undoubtedly die from it.

3. Copycat remedies floating around

Recipes in the junk/spam mail box telling you some wild way to make and use it.

A Frankenstein monster is in the making!

Truly a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde at the helm!

6. One good thing: there will be a lot fewer malaria cases this year

It has already been proven that hydroxychloroquine doesn't do shit for the Covid, but these idiots don't care. They just want their magic pill. So let's wipe out malaria this year, and wait till next year for the Covid vaccine that works.
