The Federal Council of Medicine ( CFM ) authorized the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in patients infected with Covid-19 , a disease caused by the new coronavirus, showing mild symptoms.
According to the CFM, “doctors may choose to use it without sanctioning an” ethical infraction “.
The opinion was presented on Thursday (23) to the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro , with the proviso that there are no scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of the drugs.
In a seven-page text, according to O Globo , the CFM concludes that drugs can be used in three stages of the disease:
- Patients with mild symptoms as long as coronavirus infection is confirmed;
- Patients with more significant symptoms who do not yet need intensive care;
- Patients whose condition is severe.
