Podcast: the advance of Covid and the problems that Lula will face in the Ministry of Health


Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency) returned this week to make it mandatory to use masks on planes and airports. The measure is a response to the increase in cases of Covid-19 in the country – which may become even more pronounced with the arrival of the end of year festivities.

This new wave of the disease must be one of the challenges that the new government of Luis Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) must face in the area of ​​health, but not the only one.

In addition to a scenario of insufficient vaccination coverage of various immunizers, starting next year the Unified Health System may have the lowest budget in ten years – with a drop of almost R$ 23 billion compared to 2022, discounting expenses with the pandemic.
