Covid in Brazil: Jair Bolsonaro gives up being vaccinated

Since he was infected with the virus with mild symptoms, in July 2020, Jair Bolsonaro has repeatedly claimed that he has a sufficient level of antibodies to exempt him from vaccination, a thesis refuted by the epidemiologists. Get vaccinated “would be like betting ten reais in the lottery to win two, that doesn’t make sense”, he insisted.

Heavily criticized for his management of the health crisis, Jair Bolsonaro is viscerally opposed to the health pass, required by several large Brazilian cities to access certain public places. “For me, freedom is above everything. If a citizen does not want to be vaccinated, it is his right, period”, summed up the president.

Brazil has just crossed the threshold of 600,000 deaths, but 71% of the 213 million Brazilians have still received at least one dose of the anticovid vaccine, and 45% are fully vaccinated.
