“It's a concern, but there's no reason for alarm. Secondly, there is no reason to justify a setback in the measures to liberate society”, said the former minister.
At the moment, according to Adalberto Campos Fernandes, what needs to be done is to facilitate access to tests and to give citizens autonomy.
For the former minister, everyone must take care of protecting themselves, especially if they are aware that they have some vulnerability.
“I have said it several times and I repeat it, it is not shameful to wear a mask, nor is it shame to go without a mask, it is an individual decision taking into account the conditions of each person and the context in which they live”.
We´ll never know how many ppl are dying/are already dead because of lack of care for their non covid ailments. Since no one will ever be held accountable for this, “there´s no cause for alarm”. Who´s counting, right? (Plus, our population can be replaced by ex-pats and now by a big wave of Ukrainian refugees).

Finally a government official actually making sense! Studies show masks do nothing! But if you feel unsafe wear one, to make yourself feel safer LOL. Covid is not dangerous, just like flu or even milder for most who get it. Can we please just get on with our lives and act like normal people again.
