BRAZIL, 24 SEPT – The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, said, in an interview published today by the weekly Veja, that his wife, Michelle, was vaccinated in New York, where she had accompanied him in recent days at the meeting UN general “Getting vaccinated is a personal choice: my wife decided to do it in the United States, I don’t,” said the head of state. Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio again criticized Bolsonaro for not getting vaccinated. During a live broadcast on social media, the far-right leader returned to question the effectiveness of vaccines, in particular the CoronaVac, commenting on the case of his Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, who tested positive for Covid despite having received the two doses of the Chinese vaccine. “Look at Queiroga: he received the two doses of CoronaVac and became infected, even though he always wore a mask”, underlined the President of the Republic. “Many scholars say that those who contracted the virus and are naturally cured are better immunized than those who are vaccinated. Compare my case with that of Queiroga and you do, knowing, of course, that it is only a case ”, concluded Bolsonaro. (HANDLE).
