|The Covid-19 pandemic was a tragedy worldwide, with countries suffering variously as the disease spread. Epidemiological studies have shown that several factors have influenced this spread and the number of deaths (1). The high average age of the population, and the climate of each region, among other factors, contributed to a variation in mortality in the countries. However, scientific denialism seems to have been one of the decisive reasons for determining the number of deaths in each country. Just remember that the two countries that registered the most deaths were the USA and Brazil, two nations that were governed in the most critical periods of the pandemic by governments that denied the severity of the disease, its basic prevention and containment measures, and that were disseminators of false news about Covid-19 (2).|
