The ‘Pandemic CPI’ will receive from indigenous representatives a list of at least 15 topics to be investigated by the commission that will investigate the actions and possible omissions of the federal government during the health crisis in the villages.
Among the complaints is an orientation from the Health’s Ministry for the use of ivermectin and chloroquine in indigenous from Amazonas who show symptoms of the disease.
Among denunciations is the Ministry of Health’s orientation for use of ivermectin and chloroquine in Indians from Amazonas who present symptoms of the disease. The treatment called “Kit Covid” is questioned by the World Health Organization (WHO) and scientists, because there is no proof of the drugs’ effectiveness against coronavirus.
A letter obtained by GLOBO confirms the indication of “Covid Kit” made by the Special Secretariat for Indigenous Health (Sesai), linked to the Health’s Ministry. He will be sent to CPI as proof so that the collegiate body can take action on what the Indians refer to as “abandonment and neglect” by the federal government combating the virus among these peoples.

In the document distributed by Special District Indigenous Sanitary (DSEI) of Rodônia’s state to the National Indian Foundation (Funai) and other indigenous entities, the medications’ recommendation is clear for “everyone who presents symptoms such as body pain, cough, headache, fever, runny nose, difficulty breathing, sore throat, loss of smell or taste.”
GLOBO made contact with DSEI Vilhena coordinator , who signs the Sesai document, Solange Pereira Vieira Tavares, but she did not return messages or calls. Sesai and the Health Ministry also did not comment.
