“Brazil will NOT get into this (WHO Pandemic Treaty), Brazil is autonomous,” Bolsonaro asserted.
“Brazil is autonomous and will not get into this, you can forget that. I’ve already spoke to our foreign relations cabinet and if that proposal goes forward, it won’t be with Brazil,” he stated.
“Moreover, I was the only statesman that didn’t adhere to the lockdown policies. I said we had to take care of the elderly and people with comorbidities, and today’s studies outside of Brazil specially show that I was right,” Bolsonaro explained.
Bolsonaro later commented that São Paulo was the Brazilian state that locked itself the most within the country.
He stated that São Paulo had the most deaths per 100,000 people.
“That’s a sign I was right,” Bolsonaro exclaimed.
Jair Bolsonaro had this confrontation with WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom last year.
