Bolsonaro says cure, not vaccine, way out of coronavirus crisis

Christian Fernsby |
Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday it would be easier and cheaper to invest in a cure for coronavirus rather than a vaccine.


“I’ll give my personal opinion: Isn’t it cheaper and easier to invest in a cure rather than a vaccine?” Bolsonaro told supporters outside the presidential palace in Brasilia.

“I’m an example, I took chloroquine, others took invermectin, others took Annita,” Bolsonaro said.

“Everything indicates that everyone that took one of these three alternatives early on was cured,” he added without providing any scientific evidence to support his statement.
