‘I don’t know why to run’, says Bolsonaro about vaccine
President Jair Bolsonaro (without a party) said today he does not understand why there is an intense race for the vaccine against covid-19. According to Johns Hopkins University, the coronavirus has infected more than 43 million people worldwide and killed more than 1.1 million. In Brazil, there are more than 157 thousand deaths.
Bolsonaro declared that, according to the information that reached him, the fastest vaccine to date took four years between the development of the research and the approval process. He said that, given this, he does not understand the rush for an immunizer against covid-19.
“We want to look for a solution to the case. Everyone says that the vaccine that took the least time to date was four years. I don’t know why to run over this one,” said Bolsonaro, who did not provide evidence on the four-year term. for a vaccine to be ready.
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 the attitudes of authorities and the president himself during the pandemic call into question the availability of the data and its accuracy.
