Time.news – The pandemic in Brazil continues to advance and every day there is a new sad record: the last one concerned the number of daily infections, for the first time exceeding 90 thousand.
From the data of Johns Hopkins University it appears that, since the beginning of the emergency, the total infections are 11,693,838, confirming Brazil in second place after the USA in absolute terms; the South American giant with 210 million inhabitants is also second for the number of deaths, which total 284,775, of which 2,648 in the last 24 hours.
The government of President Jair Bolsonaro, which has always played down the pandemic, is more than ever under fire for the slowness of the vaccination campaign and ineffective emergency management.
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva asked US President Joe Biden to share his surplus of vaccines against Covid-19 and to call a G20 meeting with only the distribution of the serum on the agenda.
The current leader of the Brazilian opposition has assured that “the responsibility of international leaders is enormous” and he said he turned to Biden because he didn’t trust Jair Bolsonaro’s government. “I ask Biden to do it, because I don’t believe in my government. Biden is a breath for democracy in the world,” Lula added. “The United States,” he said, “has an excess of vaccines and will not use all of them, and perhaps those vaccines, who knows, could be donated to Brazil or to other countries even poorer than Brazil that cannot afford to buy vaccines. “.
