Sao Paulo, Apr 3 (EFE) .- Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva received this Saturday the second dose of the anticovid vaccine and asked the Government of President Jair Bolsonaro to “listen to science” in the fight against the pandemic.

The 75-year-old leader of the Workers’ Party (PT) was inoculated with the second dose of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine, at a time 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 registers 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.

FOLLOWING

Lula, Bolsonaro’s main political rival in the field of the left, 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 anticovid vaccine.

Bolsonaro and Lula could face each other in the 2022 presidential elections, after Justice annulled four processes against the former 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.
