Note: From the article: "Clinical research in Brazil has evolved greatly during the pandemic: it has become clear that the scientific community within our country has the capacity to overcome colossal challenges. The population may and should trust Brazilian medical science when properly understood and applied. And who knows, perhaps the key element to treat COVID-19 will be found in the jabuticaba extract?! What really matters is the message to the new generation of Brazilian doctors and researchers: just like for astronauts, rigor and training always prevail in the end."
