Expressing scepticism towards COVID-19 vaccination programs, Brazilian President says he won’t take one

In the latest statement, adding more to a series of statements made by him expressing scepticism towards the COVID-19 vaccination programs, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, on November 26, said that he will not take a Coronavirus vaccine. “I’m telling you, I’m not going to take it. It’s my right,” he said.

The right-wing leader, in statements broadcast live over multiple social media platforms, said that Congress was unlikely to require Brazilians to take a vaccine.

The president has also expressed scepticism over the effectiveness of mask-wearing, implying that there was little conclusive evidence of the effectiveness of masks in controlling transmission of the infection.

It must be noted that Brazil has recorded the second-highest number of COVID-19 deaths in the world.
