Brazil erratic strategy to combat Covid-19: advocates the use of chloroquine

Brazil Virus cases rise as political crisis heats

The President said that what he most wants is for the country.

Brazil overtook Russia Friday as the country with the second-highest number of coronavirus infections worldwide behind the United States, as the Americas emerged as a new epicenter of the pandemic.

Brazil reported more than 3,30,000 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus as of Friday, surpassing Russian Federation to become the nation with the second-highest number of infections, behind only the USA, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.

The number of cases reported in the country is usually highest mid-week, as laboratories resume full testing capacity after the weekend.

Iran renewed an appeal for citizens to avoid unnecessary travel after another 51 deaths, and Russian Federation reported its highest ever daily coronavirus death toll of 150, suggesting COVID-19 is not yet under control in the world's biggest country by area.

New federal guidelines released by the ministry recommend doctors prescribe the anti-malarial drugs from the onset of symptoms of coronavirus infection, together with the antibiotic azithromycin.

Brazil surpassed the United Kingdom on Monday to become the country with the third-highest number of confirmed cases, behind Russian Federation and the United States. If we're at war, we all face defeat.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro did not respond to Trump's remarks when speaking to reporters on Wednesday, but he did confirm that Brazil's Health Ministry would issue guidelines on the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.

In addition, although about 12 million people were unemployed before the health crisis, now some 50 million informal workers have managed to survive thanks to a governmental subsidy of 600 reais ($110), the distribution of which has been beset with serious logistical problems.

Despite the worrying spread of the disease, far-right President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday continued his calls to scrap lockdown measures to revive the country's flagging economy.

Mr Bolsonaro has compared the virus to "a little flu" and promoted the use of the unproven drug chloroquine, despite warnings that it may be unsafe.

The former army captain has argued in favor of restarting the economy, even though experts say Brazil has yet to reach the peak of the pandemic.

Gonzalo Vecina Neto, the former head of Brazil's health regulator, Anvisa, called the new measures a "barbarity" that could cause more harm than good because of the unsafe potential side effects of the drug.

Bolsonaro said he will approve yesterday or today a 60 billion-real (RM45.55 billion) federal aid programme for states and cities hit by coronavirus but asked governors for support freezing public sector pay increases.
