The president of Brazil “welcomed” Omicron, which was urgently refuted by WHO officials

It was reported on January 14 that with the worldwide spread of Omicron, the number of confirmed cases in many western countries is also reaching a new high. World Health Organization official Kruger said on January 11 that more than half of people in Europe will be infected with Omicron in the next six to eight weeks. It has now become the “mainstream virus” in western countries. Fudge, director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases in the United States, also said on the same day that Omicron’s transmission ability was not possessed by the previous virus, and he could infect almost anyone. Countries that have been deeply infected by Omicron need to strengthen their own epidemic prevention and control, and countries that have not been impacted by Omicron cannot relax.
However, in an interview, Brazilian president bosonaro said that the Omicron strain was weakening the epidemic in Brazil, and even claimed that Omicron’s arrival was “welcomed” in Brazil and could end the epidemic in Brazil.
Michael Ryan, executive director of the emergency program of the World Health Organization, also refuted bosonaro’s remarks on January 12. Ryan said that although the symptoms of Omicron are not as serious as the original virus, it can not be regarded as a mild disease.
Ryan said that at present, many infected patients around the world are treated in hospitals, which is enough to prove that the infection of Omicron is not a mild disease. It is a disease that can be prevented from infection through personal protection. There are still many things we need to do now, such as vaccinating people and wearing masks. Instead of choosing “live with the virus”.
After the outbreak of covid-19, the president of Brazil thought that the severity of the epidemic was not worth mentioning, and even said that Brazil would not force people to vaccinate. Last October, bosonaro said in a live broadcast that vaccination would damage the human immune system, in order to prove his statement “correct”. Bosonaro even dragged Britain directly into the water. This is the findings of the British laboratory. If the new crown vaccine is injected, the risk of HIV infection is higher than that of the unvaccinated person. In fact, it was just made up by bosonaro himself.
In addition, bosonaro’s negative management in epidemic prevention has also triggered a lot of public opinion, which is in flagrant violation of Brazil’s epidemic prevention policy, passive epidemic resistance, and no masks in public places
Up to now, the number of COVID-19 killed in Brazil has reached 620609, ranking second in the world, second only to the United States.
