Senator Confúcio Moura (MDB-RO) delivered yesterday to the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, the final report of the mixed commission that accompanied the measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. The report was approved in December and contains recommendations in six essential areas: health, economics, education, citizenship, the financial system and credit and supervision.
The document chooses as a priority the vaccination plan against Covid-19, and emphasizes that this measure must be based on technical criteria and not of a political nature.
Vaccination - In an interview with Rádio Senado, Confúcio Moura, who chaired the mixed commission, said that the recovery of the economy depends entirely on the performance of the immunization campaign.
“Vaccination is the great hope. The Brazilian population has been confined for a long time, this causes a great emotional exhaustion and the immunization brings a light at the end of the tunnel. It is not just the goal of people's immunization. The main thing is to avoid deaths, deaths, but, on the other hand, it has a role in economic development. Mass vaccination induces economic growth and generates confidence in the market. Consequently, everything improves ”, affirmed the senator.
The senator said that Bolsonaro was receptive to the suggestions made and to the creation of a group composed of members of the government, the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies to discuss and monitor public spending in the post-pandemic scenario. In relation to the theme, Confúcio Moura stated that one of the proposals is the reformulation of the spending ceiling, dispensed during the calamity period.
ICUs - In addition to the focus on vaccination, one of the recommendations in the final report of Covid's mixed committee is the suggestion to increase transparency regarding the disclosure of occupancy rates for public beds in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) nationwide.
