Senator said that former minister Pazuello bent to the will of the president, who dictated the rules and protocols for fighting the virus
The senator Otto Alencar, which is part of the opposition group in the CPI to Covid-19, believes that in 90 days, at most with the extension, the collegiate will have the final report to present to the country. The Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry has already defined its 11 members and will now investigate actions to tackle the AIDS pandemic. Covid-19 at the federal, state and municipal levels. According to Otto, next week it should already be possible to start the meetings. The president of the CPI, not yet chosen, will be responsible for deciding whether they will be remote, semi-face-to-face or face-to-face. “With the situation of working remotely, we may have difficulties. At some point you will need to be in person because you have secrets, maybe confrontation. This demands face-to-face action, ”he said.
In an interview with Morning newspaper, gives Young pan, Otto Alencar criticized the government’s attitudes towards the pandemic, said that the vaccine purchase signatures should have been made last year and disapproved of the declaration of Pazuello that the purchase of the immunizer should be on demand. “I got it all wrong. He worked on the proposal for Osmar Terra, who said that the disease would spread and we would have herd immunity. Totally distant from the scientific and medical reality. There were several inconsequential and mistaken acts. Science does not fold. Pazuello bowed to the wishes of the president, who dictated the rules and protocols for carrying out the Ministry’s actions. ” He cited the countless times that Jair Bolsonaro did not encourage the use of a mask and social distance and recalled that three senators died as a result of the disease.
According to the senator, two names are cited as possible CPI rapporteurs: Eduardo Braga e Renan Calheiros. Regarding the presidency, he said he had nothing to score – he just mentioned that he has already received many requests for support, but that the vote is secret. “What matters is to start investigating the things that happened and, in my opinion, are serious, especially within the scope of the Ministry of Health. When Bolsonaro resigned Mandetta, O Nelson Pond he cannot stay because he was unable to work and submit to the instructions of the President of the Republic. In the period that Pazuello was in, he fulfilled exactly what was determined. It even went so far as to include on the Ministry’s website the indication of chloroquine as treatment. ”
Otto Alencar reinforced that the vaccine should have been a priority. “We should have signed the technical cooperation contracts. Of every 10 vaccines applied today, 8.3 are from the Butantan Institute. Why don’t we sign back there? From Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson to have 40%, 50%, 60% of the vaccinated people today. One vaccine costs US $ 10, a day in the ICU costs R $ 2 thousand. It was just doing the math. The Ministry of Health is the most important. Economy does not work if the Brazilian people do not have the health to work. ” For him, the sovereignty that he should have had over the years is that of investment in research and science. “As opposed to bringing IFA from China or India, we would be producing here. If not, you are at the mercy of those who will send or donate here. ”
