.....just like Trump.....hey, dude.....it doesn't work.....


Bolsonaro says he's taking hydroxychloroquine after positive coronavirus test

.....Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said Tuesday evening that he is taking hydroxychloroquine to treat his coronavirus infection and that it was making him feel "a lot better."

Bolsonaro, a right-wing populist with close ties to President Trump, announced that he has tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.

Today I'm a lot better, so certainly it's working," the 65-year-old said in a Facebook video posted Tuesday night, where he is seen taking a dose of the drug.

Hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug, has been touted by Trump as a treatment for COVID-19, though the medical community has been largely hesitant to approve it.

In mid-June, the FDA ruled that it would withdraw emergency use authorization for the drug, citing at the time that recent data showed no difference in patients with COVID-19 who took the drug and those who did not.

It also cautioned against using the drug outside a hospital or clinical setting to treat COVID-19, saying there were safety issues including the possibility of serious heart rhythm problems, blood and lymph system disorders, kidney injuries and liver problems and failure.

The drug is also used and has been approved by the FDA for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Like Trump, Bolsonaro has been skeptical of the severity of the virus, calling it "a little flu." He said he trusted his use of hydroxychloroquine.

"We know today there are other remedies that can help fight the coronavirus," Bolsonaro said. "We know none of them have their efficacy scientifically proven, but I'm one more person for whom this is working. So I trust hydroxychloroquine. And you?"

The U.S. and Brazil have the most confirmed coronavirus cases in the world and figures in both countries have continued to rise in recent weeks.



......doesn't work......?!

Well, if he has a heart, that will damage it for sure.

Since he doesn't....

Didn't Trump send him a bunch of the stuff? I bet he's just trying to drive the price up so he can dump it.

Maybe he needs to double his dose. Or triple it.

Bolsonaro is effectively a mass murderer and deserves to get gravely ill.

.... but he’ll have a relatively mild case most likely and claim it’s all because of that quack drug.

Anyone who has ignored all the evidence of covid’s unpredictability and highly variable outcomes will surely only attribute LUCK to their intelligence.

Today in Brasil:

Bolsonaro vetoes plans to offer Covid-19 support to indigenous people

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has vetoed provisions of a law that required the federal government to provide drinking water, disinfectants and a guarantee of hospital beds to indigenous communities amid the pandemic.

Bolsonaro, who has tested positive for coronavirus, vetoed 16 parts of the law on efforts to address the coronavirus threat to the indigenous population, but still allowed for provisions on adequate testing, ambulance services and medical equipment.

“The vetoes deny the minimum necessary for the survival of these communities,” Brazilian indigenous advocacy group Instituto Socioambiental (ISA) said in a statement.

“The vetoes reveal that the president’s plan is not to have a plan,” it said.

ISA called on Congress to overturn the vetoes, which it can do with sufficient votes.

The president also vetoed funding for the states and local governments with emergency plans for indigenous communities, as well as provisions to help give them more information on coronavirus, including greater internet access.

On the campaign trail, Bolsonaro swore to not to designate any more land for indigenous reserves. The right-wing populist has sought to assimilate indigenous peoples by calling for commercial farming and mining to be introduced on their reserves, saying it will raise them out of poverty.

The president’s office said those provisions in the law, approved by Congress, were “against the public interest” and “unconstitutional,” by creating expenses for the federal government without new sources of revenue to cover them.

Brazil’s indigenous population of roughly 850,000 is more vulnerable to Covid-19, as they live in remote areas with little access to health care systems and because their communal lifestyle rules out social distancing.
