The vice president said that national measures are not feasible; and, according to him, would be dictatorial impositions
The vice president, the general Hamilton Mourao, spoke this Tuesday, 2nd, about the letter published on Monday, 1st, by the health secretaries. In the document signed by the president of the National Council of Health Secretaries (CONASS), Carlos Lula, health secretaries said the Brazil going through the worst phase of the Covid-19, criticized the absence of leadership and asked for increase in restrictive measures. One of the suggestions is a national curfew from 8 pm to 6 am and on weekends. The vice president criticized the national measures suggested by CONASS. “There is no point in wanting to impose something national. So how are you going to do this for real? The imposition? We are not dictatorship. Dictatorship is easy, banging everyone around, ”he said in an interview at the door of the Planalto Palace.
“There has to be a campaign at all levels of awareness among the population. I also think that they had to have some attitude towards urban transport, I think that no manager was very concerned with that there. That’s it, ”he suggested. The adoption of measures to reduce overcrowding in urban public transport, however, was one of the points raised by the council’s text. Then Mourão stated that the purchase of vaccines is the best way to contain the spread of coronavirus. “And being able to speed up vaccines. Accelerating vaccines, things are going well ”, he concluded.
