Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro says he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The politician – who has previously dismissed the disease as a “little flu” – said he began feeling unwell on Sunday but insists his condition has improved since having treatment.

He said he is taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin.

“I’m well, normal,” Mr Bolsonaro told reporters while wearing a face mask.

“I even want to take a walk around here, but I can’t due to medical recommendations.”

The 65-year-old has cancelled a planned trip to the Brazilian state of Bahia following his diagnosis.

Mr Bolsonaro has spent months downplaying the severity of coronavirus and has often appeared in public shaking hands with supporters and mingling with crowds, at times without a mask.

Stark madness to ban ivermectin

This is outrageous. When someone is infected with Covid, it is too late to bother with vaccination. They need early treatment. To deny it to coerce them into accepting a vaccine, one of whose side-effects is death, is immoral.

Australia’s TGA Bans GPs from Prescribing Ivermectin

Australia’s medicine and therapeutic regulatory, the Therapeutic Good Administration (TGA) recently took the gloves off with Ivermectin, the economical anti-parasitic drug associated with at least 63 completed clinical trials involving SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19. Now TGA formally places a national prohibition on off-label prescribing of ivermectin to all general practitioners. A comparable move as to what TGA did with hydroxychloroquine in 2020. Clearly further evidence of tightening encroachment of the critically important doctor-patient treatment relationship allowing consent to medical treatment using off-label medications. Of course, this isn’t occurring in a vacuum—it’s part of an unfolding, integrated and what have the signs of a coordinated and orchestrated government action to stop any and all treatments other than those the government declares acceptable.
