Description (Dublin Core)

A political cartoon reflecting on the recent news of a medical study in the UK that showed dexametasona (DECADRON) could help reduce the fatality rates of severe Coronavirus cases. The comments reflect some concern that readers might take this information too literally and self-medicate, which has been a problem in Peru. The self-medication approaches range from strange to devastating, as some have tried to create home spas or special chemical baths that proved fatal to users.
