RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Appointed as acting head of the Ministry of Health, the portfolio's executive secretary, General Eduardo Pazuello, is expected to release the use of chloroquine in patients with mild covid-19 symptoms.
The measure is President Jair Bolsonaro's order, which oncologist Nelson Teich refused to comply with and, under pressure, resigned. Currently, the portfolio advises professionals in the public health system to prescribe the substance only in moderate or severe cases . . .
