Even with the symptoms, Fábio Faria gave a press conference yesterday to the press and, without wearing a protective mask, commented on the privatization plan for the Post Office.

Vehicles come together for information

In response to the Jair Bolsonaro government’s decision to restrict access to data on the covid-19 pandemic, media outlets Twitter, The State of S. Paulo, Folha de S.Paulo, O Globo, G1 and Extra formed a consortium to work collaboratively to seek the necessary information directly from the state health departments of the 27 units of the Federation.

The federal government, through the Ministry of Health, should be the natural source of these figures, but recent attitudes by authorities and the president himself question the availability of the data and its accuracy.
