Invited by the senatorial commission in charge of assessing the government management in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, Pedro Hallal –researcher at the Federal University of Pelotas (Rio Grande do Sul state) – claimed that Bolsonaro’s actions are undefended.
Hallal stressed that ‘the main person accountable for disclosing anti-scientific messages was Jair Bolsonaro.’
Unfortunately, ‘Bolsonaro’s stance is the worst we´ve ever seen during the Covid-19 pandemic.’
Dr. Jurema Werneck, representative of the Alert Movement, also assured that in the first 52 weeks of coronavirus-caused crisis, the government was able to take some actions.
Werneck said it is understandable that certain mistakes were made at the beginning of the pandemic, as the virus was still unknown.
