Chlorine dioxide approved as a treatment for COVID-19 in Bolivia
Bob Sisson and his guests at the CLO2TV talk about chlorine dioxide being used as a treatment for COVID-19 in several countries such as Bolivia and Honduras.
Bolivians are now receiving chlorine dioxide, known by its supporters as Miracle Mineral Solutions, for the treatment of COVID-19.
The chemical was approved by the Senate as a treatment for the disease that has affected people around the world.
In the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia, the provincial government has approved its use and many believe the substance may help treat COVID.
The pharmacies sell chlorine dioxide and is available for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
MMS proponents claim that the substance can cure almost any disease, including COVID-19.
While it is illegal in Bolivia to promote MMS as a medical substance, the country is in a vulnerable position and the legislature passed a bill allowing its use.
MMS is already in production in university laboratories and ready for distribution to COVID-19 patients. Across the country, numerous injuries and a single death have been reported among those who used the chemical as a medicine. (Related: Chlorine dioxide to treat COVID? YES, says Dr. Manuel Aparicio).
The chlorine dioxide treatment υποστηρίζεται από μια ομάδα γιατρών.
Ο Andreas Kalcker, a German researcher, argued that chlorine dioxide offers a cheap and affordable solution for COVID-19.
He was interviewed on Bolivia's national television channel, RED Gigavision, about MMS, where he stated that it is effective against the disease.
Ο Kalcker supported by a group of doctors from the Global Coalition for Health and Life (COMUSAV) led by the pediatrician of La Paz, Dr Patricia Callisperis. Callisperis supports the use of chlorine dioxide for the treatment of COVID-19 because of its "oxygenating effect at the mitochondrial level".
Η Callisperis stated that the Comusav "trying everything", as there is "no scientific evidence of any drug or substance proposed in the world" that could cure COVID-19.
He also described MMS as a "natural cure" that touches the roots of Bolivians.
Publications of the Bolivians media also reported that Comusave has previously used MMS to treat patients in Oruro, in eastern Bolivia, with the support of local authorities. Callisperis itself confirmed that Bolivian lawmakers consulted Comusave on MMS.
She also dismissed reports of harm caused by the substance, saying the media reports were not sufficiently rigorous - she would stop promoting MMS if it was shown to have "convincing" evidence.
He also stated that Comusav's support for chlorine dioxide is convincing evidence supporting its efficacy.
A country in political crisis.
Η Kate Centellas, Croft's associate professor of anthropology and Latin American studies at the University of Mississippi, said Bolivia is a country in crisis.
He shared that the high level of COVID-19 cases in Bolivia caused panic and that supporting chlorine dioxide is a way to signal dissatisfaction with the political and scientific establishment.
The CoronaVirus also put additional pressure on the government itself.
"Chlorine dioxide, whether it's effective or not, is a great thing to fit into this narrative because it's cheap, it makes it look like they're defending the people and obviously the executive branch has to block it because it's not healthy.", said the Jhanisse Vaca Daza, a human rights activist.
Her group, the charity Standing Rivers, organized efforts to distribute basic medical supplies to Bolivians who lack access to medical care.
"There is so much desperation. We see it first-hand because we often deliver protective equipment and food.
We have seen how desperate people are. So having something that is not only cheap but also accessible seems like the perfect thing we'd like to find right now."
