Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has threatened Brazil’s possible exit from the World Health Organization (WHO) this Friday if he continues to be led by an “ideological bias” after his actions against the coronavirus pandemic.

“The United States has left WHO and we will investigate in the future whether WHO has worked without ideological prejudice, but we will also be outside. We do not need anyone outside to give us indications of our health,” said Bolsonaro on one Press conference. collected by Agencia Brasil.

The President referred to the WHO study on the treatment of hydroxychloroquine against coronavirus. “What is the WHO for? A few days ago he recommended not to continue the studies on hydroxychloroquine and now he has started it again. They just take the money and start thinking differently,” he said.
