*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Despite a still Hard Virus' Epidemic, and Changing 3 Health Ministers in a row, Surprisinly, it's a Fact that Brazil is, Slowly But Steadily, Lowering Both Infections' and Deaths' Numbers, During a Long Period  of Time, and withOut notable Exceptions : from around mid-July, up to End September 2020, according to Crystal-clear Official WHO's Data, (pictured here in 2 Locacious Graphics)...

brazil__virus__deaths__down_trend__who_data__eurofora_patchwork_400 

F.ex., from 69.074 Daily Infections on July 31st, Brazil Lowered Down to "only" 32.817 on September 26, i.e. ...Less than the Half ! And, From 1.595 Deaths per Day on July 31st, Brazil, also, Lowered Down to just 831 on September 26, i.e. approaching the Half, (etc).

+ Moreover, Brazil's "Death Rate", (i.e. the Proportion of People Dead, Among those Infected), was, at Mid-September, as Comparatively Low as "Only" 3,04%, While, on the Contrary, Even that of Germany's was Higher :  3,52%, Switzerland's 4,25%, China's 5,25%, Canada's 6,56%, France's 7,43%, Belgium's 10,48%, UK's 11,13%, and Italy's 12,29%, (i.e. X 4 Times Bigger !), according to "Statista"'s Data, Based mainly on "John Hopkins" University's Numbers.

=> So that, in Addition to the Obvious Question, Whether embattled President Bolsonaro's (himself a Virus' Survivor)Big, but Comparatively rather Poor and Under-Equiped South American Country, Might be, after all, Winning at a Crucial Global Race against the Deadly Virus, where Many Other, even More Rich, Better Equipped, and with a Wider Science/Technology Potential Countries, accross the World, are, on the Contrary, still Struggling, Nowadays, with Aggravated Situations, in a so-called "2nd Wave" of the Virus, Often a complete Negative "Reversal" towards even More Infections (and sometimes, already Deaths) than During Last Spring's "Lock-Down", (See, f.ex., at: ... + ..., etc), inevitably Emerges, Also, anOther, Global-Interest Topical Query, about What might be the real Cause of such an UnExpected Development ?

-----------------------------

=> "HCQ"+ ?

----------------------------------

- Bolsonaro has recently pointed out that Brazil Invested "400 Millions $" in "Oxford's Vaccine", as he called UK Company "AstraZeneka"'s Still On-Going Trials, (which have Notoriously, been Recently Interrupted, by a Grave Health Incident, Before Re-Starting Later-on), and has been Cited as another, particularly numerous, Test-bed also for a Russia-made Vaccine, reportedly, at an Advanced, already, Stage, (etc), as well as one Among Many and Various Countries accross the World which have, reportedly, just Agreed with Moscow to Soon Import "AviFavir" New Drug for Remedy, Already Distributed inside Russia and some among its Neighbouring States, while its Controversial President did Also Boast, recently at UNO's General Assembly, that "In Brazil, Hospitals did Not Lack the Means to cater to Covid Patients", without specifying further.

But, None of These Factors seems Able to Explain the above-mentioned Positive Facts on a 3-Months Long Trend towards Massively Less Infections and Deaths in Brazil, (Comp. Supra), Either Because the Factors' Play, at a Full and Real Dimension, has Not Yet Started there, (f.ex. concerning Vaccines and/or New Drugs, etc), Or Since it appears quite Exagerated, (f.ex. concerning respective Hospitals' Medical Equipments, etc., since, among others, f.ex. in the USA, the UK, and/or France, etc., they seem to have quite Stronger Facilities, with No sufficient Avail yet)...

=> So that the Only Known relevant Factor, which Might, Possibly, Solve that Enigma, remains that of the Controversial, but, apparently, rather Operational, "HCQ" Drug Therapy (and/or Prophylaxis), that President Bolsonaro, Notoriously Supports, (Even More than USA's President Trump), since a Quite Long Time Ago !

- Indeed, Bolsonaro has made it Crystal-clear, (When he was Recently Infected himself by the Virus seriously), that he Personaly Used the "HCQ" as his Favorite Therapy, Even for him, Explicitly Speaking about that, and Appearing at Published Videos Taking a "HCQ" Pill, while Asking the Spectators What they think to do in Similar Circumstances, (Even if, "Nothing has been, yet, Fully Proven", in Absolute terms, From EIther Side of the Well-Known Controversy about the Alleged Existence or Lack of Anti-Virus' Efficiency)...

+ More Recently, at another Anecdotically Symbolic Move, the Brazilian President, in a Published Video showing him Speak to a Group of People Outdoors, Announced that it's Also 2 of his Ministers who had just been Infected by the Virus, - "But they Started to Take <<HCQ>>", and "That's Good !", he Concluded in public.

++ Moreover, in Addition to being Entirely Free to be Sold and Bought at Pharmacies in Brazil, (Contrary, f.ex., to France, where it, Curiously, became almost Prohibited, while Even some USA's Big Institutional or Social Players recently raised Surprizing Obstacles, etc), "HCQ"s Prices (Usually very Low) at the Market, Suddenly ...Sky-Rocketed, by being Raised at ... "500 %", for that Drug's "Input Production", some Time Ago, as Bolsonaro has just Denounced at UNO's GA these days, (Pleading for Domestic Production, and Not 100% Imports from Abroad, for such Key Medical Drugs, in each concerned Country or Groups of Countries).

=> Thus, in, at least, 2 recent Occasions, (f.ex. on May + early September 2020), he was Phographed Ostensibly Holding a "ReuQuinol" Drug Pack, which is Purely "HCQ", and Produced by ...Brazilian Company "APSEN Pharmaceutica", Headquartered at Sao Paolo. (One of the Practical Advantages of "HCQ" being that it's a No more Patented Drug, therefore Free to be Re-Produced in "Generic" Forms by Any Willing Industries, Anywhere in the World, potentialy Becoming much Cheaper to buy by the People : That's, Notoriously, one of the Reasons for which a great Part of the "Big Pharma" Establishment is Astonishingly Hostile against "HCQ"... ).  According to some Brazilian Medias, "APSEN"s CEO, Renato Spallici, would be Ideologicaly Near "Bolsonarism".  (However, Other Photos show Also Different "Generic" "HCQ" Drugs apparently Produced in Brazil, Not related to that particular Company).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

>>> In Consequence, the above-mentioned WHO's Latest Data for Brazil, about an Obvious Trend towards a Slow but Steady Diminution of Both Infections and Deaths, between Mid-July and End of September 2020, (Comp. concrete Graphics Supra), seem to have, Also, an Important, Real-Size "Test", Interest in the Well-Known, "Hot" Global Debate about the Disputed or Alleged "HCQ"'s Efficiency as Medical Drug for Therapy and/or Prophylaxis against the Deadly Virus' current Epidemics !

- Following the UnPrecedented Big Scandal (Later Nick-Named in the UK : "Lancet-Gate", but, in fact, concerning also US Review "NEMJ", Both "Left"-leaning) of a "Bogus" Fake-Study erroneously Accusing the "HCQ" Drug Therapy to be ...Totaly InEfficient and Even very Dangerous (sic !), which had Initially Heavily Influenced mainly a French Establishment, through which it Extended Also inside the WHO, Multiplying UnPrecedented Oppressive Measures Against Medical Prescriptions of "HCQ" and  Even "Freezing" evolving Scientific Trials using it World-wide, (that "Eurofora" was the 1st to Strongly Denounce, Criticizing no less than ..."11 Big Flaws" in that Paper, Followed, a Week Later, also by Many Medical Doctors accross 5 Continents throughout the World, at a Collective "Open Letter" Published at the Internet, and Various Other Critics, until our "Whistle-Blowing" Snow-Balled, Succeeding to Make Both "the Lancet" and "NEMJ" WIthdraw that "Bogus Study" : See ..., but also ..., etc), Nevertheless, "Hot" Debates Persisted :

- Despite their Recent Big Defeat (Comp. Supra), however, "HCQ"'s Relentless Opponents still Recidivated, During Summer 2020, with AnOther Controversial Attempt, (this time Disguised, No more as an Anglo-Saxon, But as a so-called "EU" area's, and even "French" Paris' "Study"), to Claim that "HCQ" would be ...Absolutely withOut Any Efficiency at all, Against the Virus ! But World-Famous pro-"HCQ+" (adde + AZ + Zinc) French Professor Didier Raoult, Head of Marseille's "Mediterranean Infections" Institute, a relevant Specialist, Together with 2 Other Researchers, this time Published himself a Strong "Reply", locaciously Titled : -"Hydroxychloroquine Failure: The End does Not Justify the Means !", since the Beginning of August, (at "Clin Infect Dis."), which Denounces, mainly, the "InSufficiency" of that Pseudo-Criticism's Data, and Marks the Last important Point, Currently, on this Issue. Another Positive Study, by other 3 Authors, Focusing on "Early OutPatient", Useful Practice of HCQ + AZ, was Also Published, Shortly afterwards, at the "American Journal of Medicine".

- And, Nowadays, towards this End of September 2020, Professor Raoult Published on-line his Landmark "Report" to an Official "Enquiry", currently made by the French Senate, on the "Public Policy facing the Pandemic", where he clearly Confirms, (After a Unique, Personal Medical Experience, of More than 5.000 Patients), that Therapy Against the Deadly Virus, Based on "HCQ" + "AZ" (+ Zinc, recently), has Reached a Record-High Survival rate of about 99,6% ! (See, already, at "Eurofora": ..., etc).

>>> At any case, the Above-Mentioned, Recent WHO's Data on Brazil's Fight against the Virus, apparently Starting to Become Progressively Succesful, During these Last 3 Months, (Comp. Facts cited Supra), Naturaly Strengthen the Efforts of those who Observe that, as Long as Vaccines and/or Any Other, More Efficient Drug Therapy has Not Yet Been Discovered, then, Obviously, there is Not any Legitimate Reason in order to, Curiously, Persist to Deprive the People from as Simple, Cheap, and Accessible Cure as "HCQ" + "AZ" + "Zinc" seem Able to Provide, particularly when even Human Life is at Stake.

+ A Fortiori, when this seems to Fit Also with a, Comparatively, quite Better Shape of the Economy of the Country (See Infra) :

----------------------------------------

+ ECONOMY :

--------------------------------------------

Astonishingly, Even Brazil's current Economy reportedly gives several Positive concrete Signs, (Rare Elsewhere nowadays), according to Various Converging Sources :

- F.ex., Despite the Epidemics, during the 1st Half of 2020, Inflows of Foreign Investments Grew in the Country, (Compared to 2019, when Brazil was, Already, "the World’s 4rth Largest Destination of FDI"), Bolsonaro announced at UNO's Assembly General, (that he, practically, ...Inaugurated, speaking Right After UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, at the Beginning of Early Morning on 22 September 2020).

bolsonaro_at_the_un_uno_photo_from_ap__eurofora_screenshot_400 

+ Almost at the Same Time, - "We Never Exported So Much", what we have "Best" : "Our Agricultural Products", to "Feed the World", the Brazilian President added. - "In Brazil, Despite the World Crisis, Agricultural Production Never Stopped", and "Truck drivers, Maritime, Port and Aviation Workers have kept the entire Logistics chain Fully Active, and ensured Distribution, domestically and into the Export markets", he pointed out.

=> In Consequence, inter alia, the GDP Fall caused by the Global Virus' Crisis until now, reportedly was Smaller than Initially Feared, as "Bloomberg" and other Medias observed, (and quite Lower than in Other Countries).

- In Parallel, Bolsonaro has, Notoriously, Started to Become more and more Popular throughout Brazil, (and Even at Poor Areas Traditionaly Left-leaning in the Past), inter alia, Particularly because of a Multi-Monthly Grant to All Poor People and informal sector Workers, reportedly Equivalent to about 25 % of the Average (Not the Lowest) Wage in the Country, Since the 1st Restrictive Measures Against the Virus. I.e. a Grant "approximately 1.000 €" for Each Person, "Distributed to almost 65 Millions of Poor People" ! "The Largest ever Assistance Program in Brazil, and, probably, one among the Largest in the Wordl" too, as he boasted. (in Trump's USA it was 1.200 $, Extended Also to Middle-Class People, But of Shorter Duration. In the UK, Farage had Proposed 1.000 £ to Every Person, Exceptionaly, But his view was Not followed). Recently, its Amount was Reduced, But it was Extended, at least up to the End of this Year. The Total Amount is, reportedly, estimated to about 65 Billions $, for this UnPrecedented for the Country Massive Social Transfert, with Economic Relevance, (including by Contributing to Boost Brazil's StockMarket's Rise, Nowadays)...

- At least Part of that Money to Poor People, at these particularly Hard Times Worldwide, probably came, in Brazil's case, also from Economies from the Succesful Completion, more than a Year Earlier, of an Important Reform concerning Retirement schemas, that Bolsonaro had repotedly managed to Finalize beforehand, there where Other Countries (including in Europe, f.ex. in France,etc) Still Face apparently Difficult Obstacles to Advance...

 - Meanwhile, the Full Deployment of Brazil's Huge Agricultural Production and Exports, Despite the Virus, as well as a still Growing Influx of Foreign Investments on 2019 and 2020, added to some Stock-Market rise, (Comp. Supra), probably Helped too.

---------------------------------------------

=> All in all, No Wonder Why Bolsonaro, who had Concluded his UN0-GA Speech recently by stressing that - "We (Brazil) are a Christian and Conservative Country, Based on Family values", But has Just Left a Hospital on Saturday after a 5th Operation, (apparently "Succesful" according to his Doctors), Since he was Notoriously Stabbed with a Knife by an Obscure Coward Lackey of UnKnown yet Commanditators, Back during the 2018 Presidential Election that he Brillantly Won with People's Votes, is, Nowadays, reportedly Accredited with 69 % of Positive Views,  (40% for "Excelent" Governance and 29% for "Good/Fair"), against Only 29%, according to a Mainstream Poll, showing, for the 1st Time, a so Strong Popular Support...

Facing a 70% Abstention threat in 2009 Election, EU endorses EuroFora's idea for Citizens' debates on crucial EU decisions !

- Different views on "Europe's Future", should be debated among Citizens at June 2009 EU Elections, thanks to political Parties' "Manifestos", says EU Parliament's Report


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
A main idea, initiated and promoted by EuroFora's founders since 1997: the vital need to develop European Citizens' democratic right to actively participate in multilingual debates on EU decisions, is formally endorsed by the EU from 2009 !

The move is a key attempt to overcome "catastrophic" Polls which warn that only ...30% of Citizens are ready to vote in the forthcoming June 2009 EU Election !  This was revealed by EU Commission's vice-president, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, during a "hot" meeting of EU Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education, during the December 2008 Strasbourg session.

Wallstrom faced criticism, but also suggestions from various MEPs, naturally worried by Abstention threats which herself found even "worse" than in 1999 or 2004...

A Report on "Active Dialogue with Citizens",examined at the same time, presented some useful practical tips, on "facilitating Interviews"; etc., but also a  potentialy important call to "incorporate the conclusions of ...debates...into (EU) policies, and take into consideration the expectations that Citizens have of the EU when deciding". An amendment even implies that Citizens' participation in debates on EU decisions is a democratic "Right".

More importantly, it finds that  a Debate "on the Future of Europe", (as French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked since 2007), would be a good idea " for the 2009 European parliamentary Elections", because "clarifying the political differences between the EU political parties would help citizens to identify themselves with, and choose between various concepts", for which "all parties (should) present their Manifesto".

A "Joint political declaration on Communicating Europe in Partnership", co-signed by "the European Parliament, Council and ... Commission", confirms that they "attach the utmost importance to improving communication on EU issues", by "enabling European citizens to exercise their right to participate in the democratic life of the Union, in which decisions are taken as openly as possible and as closely as possible to the citizens, observing the principles of pluralism, participation, openness and transparency".

This should "enable Citizens to exercise their right to express their views and to participate actively in the public Debate on European Union issues", while also "promoting the respect of multilingualism". In this regard, EU confirms its "wish to develop synergies with national, regional and local authorities as well as with representatives of Civil Society".

    It's since 1997 that a group of EuroFora's founders have officially presented a pioneer Project (then called "EIW", for "Europe in the World"), which aimed to develop Strasbourg's "Polyphonic music", by providing "Interactive information", on "main issues ... during the Decision-making process of European Organizations which engage in Transparent and Public Democratic Debates"

    This should be done, inter alia, by "exploring the potential of New Communication Tools (mainly Internet)", as well as classic-form debates, the 1997 EIW pioneer project's anounced in its "Synopsis". It was formally "accepted for evaluation" by EU Commission in Brussels in order to be examined for a grant in the framework of the "Research/Technology/Development (RTD) Programme in the field of Information Technologies", then called "ESPRIT", as a "Best Practice Pilot Project".

        But the vital, urgent Political need for EU to search new, efficient ways to reach the People and interact with European Citizens, was really felt in Brussels and elsewhere only after the unprecedented in History 1999 and 2004 Majority Abstention in EU Elections, followed by 3 "NO" in Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, on 2005 and 2008...
    In this New Political Landscape, we prepared a new, actualised and more developed version of our initial idea, in a simplified and more efficient form, thanks also to a large Experience accumulated during many years of EU/CoE/UNO Press work and Multi-lingual debates, with the New project "EuroFora" :

    On 2006 we presented in Public its main lines during Questions/Replies that we raised at two Press Conferences by EU Commission President, Jose Baroso, and mainly EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, together with EU Parliament's vice-president, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, in Strasbourg, (Videos available), and we reminded it at various brief contacts with Commissioner Wallstrom in 2007 and 2008.

    Meanwhile, a new Text was also presented for "EuroFora" Project mainly to certain Political and other personalities, at European, National or Regional/Local level, mainly in 2007, but also in 2008..

    Now, after the unexpected 2008 Irish "NO", and before the 2009 EU Elections, which are due to be of exceptionally crucial importance for Europe's Future, the moment has obviously come to launch that project, progressively, but in real practice.

    Whoever really cares for Europe and its Citizens is welcome to join, in one way or another. Only anti-European, anti-democratic, obscure or ignorant groups might oppose or attempt to "steal" and deviate the main idea.

    But European Citizens, incited by enlightened political leaders, are those who will finally write the real History.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
