RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazilian scientists will be testing a drug in 500 patients, with virtually no side effects, 94 percent effective in cells infected with the new coronavirus, with a result in no more than one month.
The news was released on Wednesday, April 15th, by the Minister of Science, Technology, Innovation, and Communications, Marcos Pontes. However, experts are wary of what they refer to as "emotional scam".
According to the Minister, the country is also developing artificial intelligence equipment to test people suspected of Covid-19 infection. The result takes one minute and the test uses national reagents . . .
