MANAUS – The final report of the CPI of Covid, presented by the rapporteur Renan Calheiros (MDB-AL), on the morning of Wednesday, 20, points, specifically, the responsibility of the federal government in the spread of the “Kit Covid” in the Amazon, highlighting, especially, the use of Manaus as “experiment” in an attempt to transform drugs, as chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and ivermectin, in effective public policy to combat the Covid-19. No other authority, state or municipal, was held responsible.

The report concludes that one of the federal government’s flags “was its unconditional and repeated defense of the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, as well as other drugs such as ivermectin and azithromycin, even after scientific studies, the WHO, and other health authorities around the world demonstrated the ineffectiveness of this treatment.

The document recalls that Manaus was the stage, on January 11, 2021, for the launching of the TrateCov application by the Ministry of Health. The event was attended by the then Health Minister, Eduardo Pazuello, and the Secretary of Work and Health Education Management, Mayra Pinheiro, known as “Captain Chloroquine”. However, ten days after the launch, on January 21, 2021, the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) published a note in which it recommended the “immediate withdrawal of the TrateCov application from the air” and pointed out that, among other things, it “ensured the scientific validation to drugs that do not have this international recognition”.

After the app was launched – originally intended to guide patients with symptoms of Covid-19, it was found that all combinations of symptoms led to the prescription of antibiotics and chloroquine, ivermectin, and other drugs for nausea and diarrhea or for symptoms of a hangover, such as fatigue and headache.

Purchase of pills

Still with regard to the insistence of the federal government regarding drugs without proven effectiveness in the Amazon, the report also recalled that, when he testified in the CPI on 19 and May 20, the former Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello was asked, still, about sending 120 thousand units of hydroxychloroquine to the State of Amazonas and about a letter, dated January 7, 2021, and forwarded to the Secretary of Health of that state, determining the dissemination and adoption of early treatment as a way to reduce the number of hospitalizations and deaths resulting from Covid-19. At the time, the state was on the eve of facing the “Oxygen Crisis”.

The report also calls for the indictment of President Jair Bolsonaro (no party), 65 other people, and two companies for various crimes, mainly for “crimes against humanity. As evidence of these crimes is cited the “scientific experiment that disobeyed the limits determined by Conep [National Commission on Ethics in Research]”, which occurred in the city of Manaus, “when there was the improper use of proxalutamide by doctor Flavio Adsuara Cadegiani for the treatment of Covid-19.

According to the report, the doctor changed the study site and the number of participants authorized by Conep, as well as not presenting the terms of informed consent of patients and included patients
serious patients in the study, which was not part of the original authorization request, among other irregularities”. The document also states that “human beings were used as guinea pigs”.

Kit among the indigenous people

The “Covid Kit” was also extremely widespread among the indigenous people, not only in the Amazon. The report points out that the documentation analyzed by the CPI shows that the government would be willing to offer some assistance, such as food baskets and the “illusory protection of the Covid Kit”, instead of fulfilling the duty to guarantee fundamental and really effective aspects to prevent Covid-19 among traditional peoples. “This set of attitudes indicates that, with respect to indigenous people, the government has treated the virus not as a risk, but as an opportunity”.
