Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has threatened to withdraw his country from the World Health Organization if it does not cease to be a “biased political organization”.

Last month President Jair Bolsonaro accused World Health Organisation of promoting homosexuality in children. Bolsonaro has some conflicts with the WHO on the issues of social distancing and measures to fight coronavirus.

Bolsonaro also told CNN Brasil reporters that hydroxychloroquine had “returned” after “false” studies on its efficacy were withdrawn.

Bolsonaro supports the use of this drug to treat the emerging coronavirus, although there is no scientific evidence for its efficacy.
