Silvio Antonio Favero died on Saturday of complications from the coronavirus. He had recently introduced a bill before the legislature to prevent the compulsory vaccination of the population against the coronavirus.
He was admitted last Thursday due to complications from the coronavirus and died just two days later. Favero shared Bolsonaro’s doubts about the efficacy and safety of vaccines against covid.
Favero shared on his social networks the publications in which the leader of the Brazilian far-right makes clear his denialism in the face of the seriousness of the pandemic. For this reason, some time ago he proposed a plan to prevent the compulsory vaccination of the population against the coronavirus.
That plan was supported by Bolsonaro, who has already warned that vaccination is not compulsory in Brazil despite the fact that the Supreme Court authorised regional and municipal governments to impose sanctions on those who refuse to be immunised.
This is part of the text proposed by Favero: “Currently there is no total certainty about the safety of vaccines, as eventual side effects may offer an irreparable risk in the medium and long term that are currently unknown”.
The latest figures in Brazil continue to be more than bleak: in the last 24 hours there have been 1,986 new deaths from the disease and 277,091 deaths since the start of the pandemic, in addition to 11,438,935 infected and which has already displaced India as the country with the second highest number of cases of the disease.
