*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...

    The incoming Swedish EU Presidency (July-December 2009) may still remain in favour of Turkey's controversial EU bid, despite June 2009 EU Elections' results, but it has "very strong demands on Turkey"'s obligation to respect EU Rules, said the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, to "EuroFora", reacting to critical Press reports.

    - "I know (that) the link is often made also to Sweden's position on Turkey"'s controversial EU bid. Indeed, "we (Swedish EU Presidency) are very much engaged in the future membership of Turkey, but not without fullfiling all the Criteria".

    - "It's very clear that we (Swedish EU Presidecny) have very Strong Demands on Turkey, in a sort of concept for Future membership of the Union, ...which will be a Long Process...", she stressed.

    This means, in particular, "the Copenhagen Criteria (on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law), and also the adaptation to the Acquis of the European Union".

     - "If you listen to what Mr. Bildt (the Swedish Foreign Minister) says on Turkey at different occasions, it's very clear : We want Turkey to become part of the Union, in the Future. But we want it to fullfil all the Criteria : The Acquis of the European Union. That's very clear", she concluded.

    The Senior Official of the Swedish Foreign Ministry was reacting to critical Press Reports, from Brussels' Journalists invited by EU Commission's secretariat to Stockholm, who claimed that Bildt was abusing of a ..."Whip" (sic !) against Cyprus, by "threatening" the presence of UNO's Peace-keeping force at the "Green line" which separates the island's Government-controlled areas from the territories occupied by Ankara's army, if Nicosia didn't accept any political solution, regardless of Turkey's demands, before the end of 2009.

        Governing AKEL Party's new Secretary General, Andros Kyprianou, reacted by declaring that no-one can threat the People of Cyprus : -"We shall decide for our Future, and nobody else",  he reportedly said, asking to "keep calm". "In order to find a Solution soon, certain basic Principles must be respected", he stressed, calling those who feel an urgency to use their influence on Turkey. Other Political Parties were more critical.

    This was a reference to recently reported statements by Turkish Minister Bagis, Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan and Turkey's National Security Council (a Military-Political body), accused to push towards a partitionist "2 States" solution, contrary to UNO SC Resolutions for Cyprus' reunification.

    December 2009 is a crucial moment for EU's appraisal of Turkey's controversial EU bid, because EU Council has decided to review then Ankara's compliance with the European position on the recognition of Cyprus' Government, which was clearly set out by an EU reply of 21 September 2005 to Turkish Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan's claims, refusing to recognize even the existence of EU Member Cyprus, in controversial statements he made to London (former EU chair) on July 29, 2005.

    EU Parliament's latest Resolution on Turkey, adopted on March 2009 in Strasbourg, warned Ankara that "the non-fulfillment of Turkey's commitments... by December 2009, may further seriously affect the process of Negotiations" with the EU.

    In practice, the issue boils down to Ankara's "embargo" against Ships and Airplanes using Cyprus' seaports or airports at the strategic EU island, which traditionaly hosts one of the World's biggest Shipping flags. EU has already "freezed" 6 relevant Chapters in EU - Turkey Negotiations since December 2006, after Ankara refused to fullfil a commitment it had undertaken when EU had decided to open controversial "accession" negotiations with Turkey, back on December 2005.

    - "As far as EU - Turkey relations are concerned, it's clear that Turkey needs to fullfil its obligation of full, non-discriminatory implementation of the additional Protocol (to "EC-Turkey Association Agreement"),  This is an important issue....and should be addresseed as soon as possible as it clearly affects the pace of the accession negotiations.Issues covered by the Declaration of September 2005 will continue to be followed up, and progress is urgently awaited", warned earlier in Strasbourg the out-going Czech EU Presidency (former vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra).

    But the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, dismissed "interpretations" by "some" that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was reportedly "threatening" Cyprus with consequences on the UNFICYP, if it doesn't accept any solution until December 2009, while Turkey is reportedly delaying in an attempt to impose a partitionist "2 States" solution.

    On the contrary, Julin, stressed that "Sweden has strong demands on Turkey'"s respect of "Copenhagen Criteria and EU Acquis".

    Meanwhile, Sweden  is "concerned" about the risk of "Stalemate" in Cyprus' Talks, but is well aware that "the main responsibilities lie with the two leaders and the UNO", Europe playing only a role of "facilitator".

    After carefully verifying, the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, stressed to "EuroFora" that Bildt's reference to UNFICYP "was not linked to a Threat", and dismissed those who "interpreted" it so.

    On the contrary, the Swedish EU Presidency acknowledged the fact that Peace Talks are mainly for the UN and the leaders of the Cypriot communities, EU's role being limited into that of a "facilitator".

    As for Turkey's reported attempts to impose a "2 States' solution", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service sharply replied by stressing that Turkey must respect the "EU Acquis" rules.

    In particular :

    - "Basically he (Bildt) underlined that it's the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and the UN that have the main responsibilities for solving the problem", started to say the Swedish Senior Official to "EuroFora", referring to the above-mentioned "briefing".

    - "But the EU had a role in sort of pointing out the benefits and facilitating a little bit the outcome for the settlement of the whole Cyprus' issue", she added.

    - "And he did state the Fact, that the rest of the World (i.e. USA, etc) will, of course, look at the differend issues which are at the table, and the future of the UN Peace keeping force is part of what is at the table", she admitted.

    - "I understand that some have interpreted that as a Threat, by the Swedish Minister" "But", in reality, "it's a statement of a Fact, that, when we'll look at the differend issues, one of the issues on which we shall have to take a stand on, is the future of the UN Peace keeping force in Cyprus".

    Indeed, one of the questions usually raised for a Solution of Cyprus' issue is what International and/or European or other Guarantees, by a Peace-keeping force, might be needed afterwards, eventually for a transitory period.

    Questioned anew by "EuroFora" whether (according to critical Press Reports) this could be taken as a veiled warning that, if Cyprus didn't accept any Turkish demand for any solution whatever, it might be left alone to face Ankara's Military Invasion/Occupation, she denied :

    - "He (Bildt) didn't say it in that way"... "It was not linked to a threat, or anything like that", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service stressed.

    On the contrary, "he (Bildt) underlined that the main responsibility lies with the parties concerned on the island". "The EU can try to facilitate and show the benefits of reaching a settlement. But also, when the EU and the rest of the World (i.e. USA) will have to look at it, they will look at all the Facts on the table, and the presence of the UN Peace-keeping force is one".

    And "he (Bildt) didn't speak about that at all", she replied to "EuroFora" question on Turkey's reported attemps to impose, in one way of another, a partitionist "2 States solution".

    Asked whether Bildt's aim was to incite both parties to move forward efficiently, she agreed :

    - In fact, "the EU is really very concerned with the Stalemate in the situation. Yes !", the Head of Sweden's Foreign Ministry's Press Service anounced. That's why Bildt "was hoping for the two parties (i.e. for Turkey's also) to engage and break, a little-bit, the present stalemate, come to a solution of the issue" of Cyprus.

    But, replying  to a "EuroFora"s question on the risk, denounced by several politicians in case of strict Time Deadlines, for Turkey to provoke a stalemate and wait for the time to come to impose a partitionist "2 States' solution", she reacted by pointing at Turkey's obligation to respect "EU Acquis" :

    - "Turkey must fullfil the EU Acquis : That's clear !", the Swedish Senior Official stressed.

    More details are expected when Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt will debate his Programme with new MEPs at EU Parliament's plenary mid-July in Strasbourg, that he has visited already in 2008.

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt became familiar with Strasbourg's CoE last year, when Sweden chaired the PanEuropean organization of Human Rights. As EU chairman-in-office, he will also chair the 27-member States strong EU Group inside the 47-member States strong CoE.

    Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom is well known at EU Parliament, where she has been an active MEP of the Liberal Group for many years, following also Press Freedom issues.

    Both have already made various statements at "EuroFora", on differend topical matters.
