the president of Federal Council of Medicine (CFM), Mauro Ribeiro, criticized on Wednesday, 13, the “politicization” of early treatment against Covid-19 and the attack on doctors who defend him. “Um medical treatment has been totally politicized for a year and a half, and doctors are being attacked in a cowardly way by certain segments of the population”, he said in an interview with the program “The Drops On The Is“, gives Young pan. Ribeiro stated that he receives “very calmly and calmly” the possibility of the senator Renan Calheiros, rapporteur of the CPI of Covid-19, ask for his indictment in the Commission’s final report. He stressed that the CFM defends the autonomy of doctors.

“We we are very calm and serene because the only thing the CFM does is defend the autonomy of the Brazilian doctor. Autonomy and confidentiality are two ancient principles of medicine. This is not a determination of the CFM, it has been a principle since the beginning of medicine”, he stated. Ribeiro also criticized the deliberation of the Supreme Federal Court (STF) which determined that states and municipalities have autonomy to decide on actions to combat the pandemic and vaccination of adolescents. “Hhe hears within this process some decisions that have turned out to be catastrophic. We accept the decision of the Supreme Court, but with great humility I place a criticism here. When the STF decided that health policies in relation to Covid were a shared responsibility between the Union, States and municipalities, the Brazilian population paid a price for that”, he declared.
