A CPI to Covid meets this Friday, the 18th, to vote on a series of requests and then listen to two infectious disease doctors who advocate “early treatment” for covid-19: Ricardo Ariel Zimerman and Francisco Eduardo Cardoso Alves. The two were called at the request of government senators.

Zimerman claims that drugs used in the “early treatment” of covid-19, such as chloroquine and ivermectin, are effective. Alves goes along the same lines and was appointed as a possible co-author of the information note from the Ministry of Health that guided the use of medicines.

Before the public hearings, the CPI will vote on requests that the former governor of Rio de Janeiro Wilson Witzel be heard in a private meeting. In testimony last Wednesday, 16, Witzel said he has “very serious accusations” to make and made himself available to participate in a closed session and provide other information.

Senators must also vote on calls for the current governor of Rio de Janeiro, Claudio castro, and the Secretary of Health of the state, Alexandre chieppe, who took over the portfolio after Witzel left and will be asked about an alleged scheme to embezzle resources in the state.

In one of the requests for the summoning of Claudio Castro, senator Randolfe Rodrigues (Rede-AP) states that he must explain the demonstration held by President Jair Bolsonaro in the state capital on May 23, when a decree of the city ​​hall of Rio de Janeiro prohibiting the holding of events in public areas.

“At the time, Bolsonaro took a motorcycle tour through the city and caused crowds. Without a mask, the president also climbed into a sound car,” says Randolfe, in the application. For him, Castro’s summons is necessary “to clarify if there was authorization for this event or if measures were taken in this regard”.
