“On Tuesday, 3,158 people died from Covid in Brazil, it is the biggest genocide in our history. Our attention should not be focused on next year’s elections, but on the fight against the virus and the vaccination of the population. We must save Brazil from Covid-19 “, estimates in the German weekly The mirror Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, again eligible to face Jair Bolsonaro in the 2022 presidential election.
Jair Bolsonaro “does not take the Covid seriously”
Brazil recorded more than 100,000 new cases of Covid-19 for the first time on Thursday in 24 hours, while the epidemic has already killed more than 300,000 there. Brazil is the country with the highest number of coronavirus deaths and infections after the United States.
“A president cannot know everything. But he [Jair Bolsonaro] should have the humility to consult people who know more than him “, believes Lula. The current president should, according to him,” meet with scientists, doctors, governors and ministers of health in order to develop a plan to defeat the Covid. “Jair Bolsonaro, even if he now wears a mask,” does not take the Covid seriously “, accuses the former leader.
“It is our responsibility to stop this man and restore democracy”
And Lula to deliver a severe indictment against the current president: “He does not believe in vaccinations, he spent a fortune on a drug called hydroxychloroquine, even if it has been proven to do no good.” “Those who used masks, he called them ‘queers.’ For a year he didn’t take this virus seriously and told us lies. For a year he provoked everyone who wasn’t agree with him, “lambasted the former president.
“If he had a bit of grandeur, he would have apologized to the families of the 300,000 dead from Covid and millions of people infected,” he accuses. “It is our responsibility, to us Brazilians, to arrest this man and to restore democracy in the country”, warns the ex-president, for whom “never in history have we had such an irresponsible president “.
