Summary

Brazilian Ministry of Health officials and U.S. Embassy Brasilia representatives at the Brasilia International Airport inspect a U.S. donated shipment of specialized medication. The medication – named Cyanokit - was urgently needed to help victims exposed to cyanide poison that resulted from a nightclub fire Jan. 27 in Santa Maria, Brazil. Brazilian health officials later distributed the medication to health care facilities treating victims. U.S. Southern Command partnered with the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, the Brazilian Ministry of Health, American Airlines, Miami Dade Aviation, and the Transportation Security Administration Feb. 1 to secure the rapid transport of the medication.
