Lula da Silva receives a second dose against the coronavirus and asks Jair Bolsonaro to “listen to the science”

The former president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, received this Saturday the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine and asked the President’s Government Jair Bolsonaro that “listen to science”In the fight against the pandemic.

You only have to do one thing: listen to science, to those who know, and comply with the determinations”, He stressed Lula, without directly citing Bolsonaro, one of the most denialist leaders about the severity of the pandemic.

The 75-year-old leader of the Workers’ Party (PT) was inoculated with the second dose of the Chinese vaccine Sinovac, at times when Brazil is going through the worst phase of the pandemic, with a daily average of 3,000 deaths from COVID-19.

Brazil, the country most affected by the disease today, already has a total of 328,206 deaths from COVID-19 and 12,910,082 cases since the start of the health crisis, just over a year ago.

The former union leader, who broadcast the vaccination live through social networks, stressed that immunization will increase their protection against the coronavirus, but said that this is not the time to relax.

No playing and doubting that virus that nature imposed on humanity. The coronavirus is a war of nature against humanity, perhaps due to the irresponsibility that humans had for so long against the environment“, Held.

Lula, main political rival of Bolsonaro In the field of the left, it has risen as a counterweight to the Brazilian president in the fight against the virus and has increased the pressure on the leader of the Brazilian far right.

Bolsonaro has criticized on numerous occasions the restriction measures imposed by governors and mayors to contain the spread of the virus, has questioned the use of masks and has even questioned the effectiveness of the vaccine against COVID-19.

Bolsonaro and Lula could face in the presidential elections of 2022, after Justice annulled four processes against the ex-president due to a procedural error and ordered that they be carried out again in other courts.

The annulment of two convictions against Lula that had already been confirmed by second and third instance courts enabled the former president (2003-2010) to contest the presidential elections of 2022 after being prevented from being nominated in 2018.
