Jair Bolsonaro recovers from Covid-19 with the help of hydroxychloroquine

“Brazil’s President Bolsonaro says he tested negative for coronavirus” (NBC):

The right-wing leader who previously downplayed the disease posted on social media on Saturday that he had tested “negative” along with a greeting of “BOM DIA A TODOS” or “GOOD MORNING EVERYONE” in Portuguese. The posts were accompanied by a photo of Bolsonaro holding a packet of hydroxychloroquine that he credited for his quick recovery.

The 65-year-old president has gone further, dismissing the disease that has killed hundreds of thousands as nothing more than a “little flu.”

Might this prove to be the Lisbon Earthquake for the devout followers of the Church of Shutdown? From Wikipedia:

The [1755] earthquake had wide-ranging effects on the lives of the populace and intelligentsia. The earthquake had struck on an important religious holiday and had destroyed almost every important church in the city, causing anxiety and confusion amongst the citizens of a staunch and devout Roman Catholic country. Theologians and philosophers focused and speculated on the religious cause and message, seeing the earthquake as a manifestation of divine judgment.

How could the God of Shutdown have failed to strike down Jair Bolsonaro, who actively mocked the Church, compared coronaplague to influenza, agreed with Dr. Donald J. Trump, M.D. regarding hydroxychloroquine, refused the Sacrament Of The Mask until he developed symptoms (i.e., he followed the W.H.O.’s advice, circa early June!), and actively taunted mask-wearers while mocking the Rainbow Flag religion? (“Before Getting COVID, Brazilian President Said Masks ‘Are for Fairies'”)

Here’s a bizarre unexplained angle to the story…. “Jair Bolsonaro is denounced in The Hague for genocide and crimes against humanity” includes a picture of the genocidal maniac sitting next to a Hanukkah menorah (a bit out of season!).

Wikipedia says that Bolsonaro is Catholic. Was he at someone else’s house for that photo? He just loves Hanukkah when not committing genocide and got the menorah out five months early? What?

    • I think you’re probably mistaken about AZT (azidothymidine) but the combo people have been talking about for coronavirus is hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

  1. Too bad you give such extensive coverage of Bolsonaro, like Trump a noted antisemite — just note the symbol of hatred of the Jews over his right shoulder. As for the hydroxychloroquine, a friend (with a preexisting cardio condition) had a severe case of the virus, over 103 fever 14 days running. The doctors concerned about his survival gave him hydroxychloroquine and the disease immediately receded according to him and he is now fine. Though when telling me the story he took great pains to disassociate himself from the Trumpenfuhrer’s advocacy of the drug lest I might conclude there was any positive to say about the President. His wife also had the disease though in her case it was similar to the flu. Their daughter who lives in close confines with her parents in a small NYC apartment and had worked continuously in a food store throughout the pandemic did not catch the disease and was unaffected.

    • If Trump hadn’t said anything about it they’d be dispensing it exactly as the doctor in dimitri’s link advises, and bludgeoning him for not pushing it. As soon as he mentioned it, hydroxychloroquine became as deadly as plutonium and he was a murderer causing people to die from heart arrhythmia.

  2. A lot of people also recover (to varying extents) without being given hydroxychloroquine, which is why the question of whether or not it’s effective has been so contentious.

  3. I found this opinion piece interesting by a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health:
    https://www.newsweek.com/key-defeating-covid-19-already-exists-we-need-start-using-it-opinion-1519535
    “I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine. When this inexpensive oral medication is given very early in the course of illness, before the virus has had time to multiply beyond control, it has shown to be highly effective, especially when given in combination with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline and the nutritional supplement zinc.”
