Brasilia, May 4 (Reuters ) - Former Brazilian Minister of Health said on Tuesday during a parliamentary hearing that the President Jair Bolsonaro was fully aware that the treatment with hydroxychloroquine he advocated for patients with CVVID-19. On no scientific basis.

"I systematically warned Bolsonaro consequences of not adopting science recommendations to combat CVIV-19," said Henrique Mandetta to the commission of inquiry.
"The government was aware that it prescribed chloroquine without any scientific evidence," he added.
