The Brazilian President thanked India, saying ‘Similarly, the lives of the Brazilian citizens will be saved by the medicines sent by India.’ The Brazilian President has shown his presence of mind, by referring to the Hanuman act of bringing Sanjeevani from the Himalayas, on Hanuman Pournima (Full moon), when the birth anniversary of Hanuman is celebrated in India. No medication has been found against the Coronavirus to date. But there have been many examples of doctors curing the Coronavirus cases with the administration of Hydroxychloroquine.
