President Jair Bolsonaro would have intentionally contributed to the spread of Covid-19.
This is the serious new accusation launched by a study.
The author of the study is the Center for Research and Studies of the University of São Paulo and Conectas Human Rights. This is one of the most important and authoritative organizations in Latin America. The latter would accuse the Brazilian leader for not having designed and implemented a real anti-epidemic plan.
“The results make it clear that the government has knowingly spread the virus in the national territory with the aim of resuming economic activity as soon as possible and at any price,” it reads. All this was reported in a special edition of the newsletter Rights in the pandemic.
Personalities from a variety of fields participated in this research. One finds the name of Deisy Ventura, an extremely influential and established lawyer in Brazil. Her focus was the relationship between pandemics and international law. Then we also have Fernando Aith, professor of the Department of Policy, Management and Health of the Faculty of Public Health at USP. They were also joined by Rossana Rocha Reis, professor in the Department of Political Science and the Institute of International Relations at USP, and Camila Lissa Asano, program coordinator forConectas Human Right.
The study looked at three time frames within the period from March 2020 to January 16. New regulations implemented by the federal and municipal governments were analyzed. In addition, all propaganda aimed at denigrating the seriousness of Covid was noted, namely, “political discourse that spreads fake news and technical, unscientifically proven information.”
To derive all this, the researchers used Google. Through it they found every relevant social, video and news content. What was then included in the publication were the most important findings and data.
Their conclusions were troubling to say the least. Here, in fact, is what it says: “The majority of deaths could have been prevented with a strategy of containment of and constitutes an unprecedented violation of the right to life and the right to health.”
The study also paid particular attention to the issue of minorities. Minorities that Bolsonaro’s policy has, if not forgotten, even damaged.
“Indigenous peoples are also denied drinking water. But in general, workers have not been able to equip themselves with protections to protect themselves from Covid and isolate themselves. Health workers disabled as a result of their actions to contain the pandemic cannot access financial compensation. Omission is therefore encouraged.”
