The denial of science has proven deadly for many countries especially Brazil and the United States. The Bolsanaro and Trump presidencies have cost many lives of Brazilians and Americans. The failure to listen to evidence-based science with respect to COVID 19 has increased number of cases and deaths to the people of Brazil and the United States. There appears to be a political war on science by some administrations. Presidents and Prime Ministers must listen to evidence base science and recommend appropriate public health policy to safeguard the health of its populace.
