Send Trump to Brazil to assist and give advice to Brazilian Pres. Bolsonaro. That would make the Brazilians happy. NOT!! Seriously, Pres. Bolsonaro needs to step down and give up his seat to somebody with common sense, not a leader like Trump or Bolsonaro.

anecdotal evidence isn't evidence.

Those pesky scientists with their pesky science proving things we believe to be false. That just can't be good for anyone. /s

Rich white right wing presidents usually don’t care about black people.

CONMEBOL tournament has more and more people getting infected because Brazil hasn't taken care of its infections

There have been studies that found HCQ to be effective. This article is state propaganda for Big Pharma.

And what is effective against the virus?

Only the vaccines?

No

A healthy immune system is!

Supplemental vitamins, exercise, a balanced diet and moderation in the vices.

Even a vegan diet has been shown to be effective in combatting the virus.

Where has the media ever extolled the above?

@kurisupisu. What you suggest will not prevent you catching Covid, getting sick or dy8ng from it. Keeping healthy will give you a better chance of survival, but prevention through vaccines is the best option.

There have been studies that found HCQ to be effective.

Not any that have been through the process of peer-review (ie - replication of the results).

Really? I haven't seen any studies that say a healthy immune system is immune to the virus, nor any studies that show healthy died and moderation in the vices increase one's immune performance against the virus. I've heard a lot of bros repeating it like bro-science though.

Do you have anything that shows it to be real-science and not bro-science?
