Favero had presented a bill, which is currently being analyzed in the Legislative Assembly, against mandatory vaccination for Covid-19.
He argued that the bill “would guarantee the right of citizens to decide whether or not they want to be vaccinated.” As for the minors, Favero believed that the choice was his parents or guardians.
Favero said about the proposed legislation: ‘It aims to prevent vaccination from being mandatory since there is currently uncertainty about the efficacy and possible side effects of vaccines, where they present an undoubtedly irreparable risk, since the short, medium and long term . The long-term effects of the vaccine are unknown. ‘
Favero shared the doubts of the far-right Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, about the efficacy and safety of Covid-19 vaccines.
Favero had introduced a bill, which is currently being scrutinised in the Legislative Assembly, against compulsory vaccination for Covid-19
Brazil’s vaccine campaign has been among the slowest in the world after Bolsonaro, who has said he will not take a vaccine himself, left it up to states to procure their own doses.
The president has also publicly avoided wearing masks, social distancing and lockdown rules, and he told Brazilians last week to ‘stop crying’ and learn to live with the virus.
Only 8.6 million Brazilians, or four percent of the population, have received a first dose of the vaccine, and only 3 million have received a second dose.
Brazil relies heavily on China’s CoronaVac for its dosages, though it’s using some Oxford / AstraZeneca hits as well.
President Bolsonaro has repeatedly avoided the rules on wearing masks, he has criticized the confinement and last week he told Brazilians to ‘stop crying’ and get used to living with the virus.
Favero’s family thanked supporters for their thoughts and prayers during his hospital stay.
He leaves behind his wife, Katia, and his three children, Gabriel, Gustavo, and Joao Ricardo. He was buried in the municipality of Lucas do Rio Verde.
The governor of the state of Mato Grosso, Mauro Mendes, of the center-right Democratic party, decreed three days of mourning for Favero’s death.
The governor paid tribute to his colleague saying: “Favero left his mark on the history of Mato Grosso, fighting for what he believed was correct.”
Brazil’s healthcare system is now on the brink of collapse as deaths and cases rise.
The country reported 1,127 deaths from Covid-19 and 43,812 new cases of Covid-19, the Health Ministry said on Sunday, ending the moth’s deadly week since the pandemic began a year ago.
Brazil is battling an increase in Covid-19 cases fueled by a new, more contagious local variant of the virus that has overwhelmed intensive care wards in most large cities.
The week saw 12,818 deaths in Brazil from COVID-19, an average of 1,831 deaths per day. That was well above the daily moving averages of 1,000 deaths for January and February and points to the severity of the resurgence.
Brazil has now registered 11,483,370 cases in total, while the official death toll has risen to 278,229, according to ministry data, in the world’s deadliest and most widespread outbreak after the United States.
