The city of Itajaí, a city located in Santa Catarina, has already caused a lot of controversy during the pandemic of the new coronavirus for defending treatment methods completely outside the standard adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The newest attempt by Mayor Volnei Morastoni (MDB), who is a doctor, will be the application of ozone to patients’ anus.
“In addition to cytromycin, in addition to camphor, we are also going to offer ozone. It is a simple, quick application, of two or three minutes a day, probably rectally, very quietly, very quickly, in a thin catheter, and that gives an excellent result ”, said the mayor in a video published on social networks.
Volnei Morastoni has also defended the use of chloroquine and ivermectin, which is an antiparasitic medication, to fight covid-19. The city also suggested homeopathy as a treatment for the disease, but none of these alternatives is indicated by the WHO or health experts.
At the end of July, the Santa Catarina Court of Accounts (TCE-SC) asked the Itajaí prefecture for explanations about the mass distribution of ivermectin to the city’s population.
