Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said the coronavirus pandemic is ending. His words are reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Globo edition.
In his speech, Bolsonaro also mentioned the governor of the Brazilian state of São Paulo, João Doria, with whom he has disagreements regarding the Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccine. “The pandemic is over, I think that he (Doria – approx.” Lenta.ru “ ) wants to quickly vaccinate people, because it will end, and he will say:” It's all over thanks to my vaccine “, okay?” Bolsonaro explained. He also added that Doria's reign is coming to an end.
Bolsonaro himself has already had a coronavirus in the summer. He reported being infected with the virus on 7 July. Then he himself discovered the first symptoms of the disease. On July 25, the President of Brazil spoke about his recovery.
Earlier, Brazil allowed the import of raw materials for the production of vaccines by the Chinese laboratory SinoVac. The lab began developing a vaccine in January, just after the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak was officially confirmed. CoronaVac is given two shots, 2-4 weeks apart, and is intended for people over 18 years of age.
