“With strict restrictions on New York’s public places because of the covid-19 pandemic, President Jair Bolsonaro and his ministers had their first meal on American soil in the middle of the street. The president is in the United States to participate in the 76th UN General Assembly, which begins next Tuesday. In an image published by the Minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado, he appears beside Bolsonaro eating pizza on a sidewalk. With them are the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga; Justice and Public Security, Anderson Torres; the Civil House, Luiz Eduardo Ramos; and the president of Caixa Econômica Federal, Pedro Guimarães.”
“With the rigidity in New York and on the part of the UN with the protocols against covid-19, the participation of Bolsonaro in the Assembly became a doubt in the last days. The Organization, however, stated that it would not require proof of vaccination from heads of state. Although the Planalto has imposed 100-year secrecy on Bolsonaro’s card – which makes it impossible to know if he has already been vaccinated against covid-19 or not – Bolsonaro claims that he did not take the vaccine and continues to defend the use of ineffective medicines against the disease” – Correio Braziliense, translated by Google and lightly edited by Naional Zero.
