Many people in Latin America trust the effects of chlorine dioxide in connection with Covid-19. Treatment with the bleach should also help against harmful substances in vaccinations.
In Bolivia, more and more people are being treated with bleach.
As an infusion or drunk, it should help against Covid and also against harmful vaccines.
A positive effect has not been proven. Health authorities warn against its use.
In Latin America, bleach and its oral and injected administration is becoming more and more popular. The treatment doesn’t sound new, as Donald Trump proposed similar methods to fight the virus over a year ago. In Latin America, the use of chlorine dioxide is not only considered a means against Covid, but is also intended to combat the toxic effects of the vaccines. This in the form of sprays or intravenous injections, as “Vice” writes.
This form of treatment is particularly popular in Bolivia. The Bolivian government legalized the sale of chlorine dioxide as an alternative treatment for Covid-19 last year. It is said that the solution kills viruses just as it does on surfaces. There is no scientific evidence for this. On the contrary. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – the federal agency responsible for protecting public health – warns of life-threatening side effects. Drinking the solution can cause respiratory failure and abnormal heart rhythms.
People look for simple solutions
The epidemiologist René Soria Saucedo from Bolivia says: “People are looking for simple solutions. It is a rich field for charlatans to hunt. ” As if the burden on the health system because of the corona patients were not enough, we are now seeing even more complicated cases because people consume bleach. “This is a burden on the health system that cannot be managed in this country,” says Saucedo.
In Bolivia, around 28 percent of the population are vaccinated against Covid-19. So did the 58-year-old accountant Grover López from Santa Cruz. But he is resistant to the vaccine, he explains to Vice his decision to have a mixture of chlorine dioxide and saline administered intravenously. His doctor Viviana Figueroa warned him that the vaccine could kill him because he has diabetes. The 58-year-old has an infusion and the mixture flows drop by drop into his arm for twelve hours.
The treatment serves to detoxify. This is necessary to flush out graphene oxide, although none of the Covid vaccines contain it. After about an hour, López said that he was exuding a metallic odor, which made him optimistic. Doctor Figueroa charges US $ 150 for such treatment. In Bolivia, where the average salary is $ 700 a month, that’s a lot of money.
Antonio Viruez also works in the intensive care unit in a Bolivian hospital. He says to Vice World News: “Chlorine dioxide is a very toxic irritant, similar to gasoline”. He had already treated five patients who had consumed chlorine dioxide; all five had died.
