After the Anvisa action that led to the abandonment of the Argentine national team at the beginning of the match with the Brazilian national team, and which drew attention to the restriction of travelers to the United Kingdom 14 days before their arrival in Brazil, the problem may come to the surface with Tite’s own team, if the Brazilian Football Confederation gets Foot on the release of English clubs from recalling the athletes working in the English Premier League and the initial position of the supervisory body is not to release.
In an interview with Mauro Cezar Pereira on Dividida, on UOL . channelAlex Campos, director of Anvisa, stated that the agency’s position on the exception is conservative and that, as Brazilian citizens, players will need to spend 14 days in quarantine upon arrival in the country, a deterrent factor, for example, Willian. From acting last weekend by Corinthians. On the other hand, it recognizes the possibility of granting the exception, because it depends on the prior approval of a group of ministers, as is the case for the holding of the Copa America in the country, in July.
“Anyone who has a history of passing through these 14 countries, who is a foreigner, who cannot enter Brazil, has to quarantine outside of Brazil. So, if you have a history of passing in the last 14 days in the UK, India and South Africa, they cannot Entering Brazil if they have been in these countries in the last 14 days. The Brazilian is an exception to the rule, he can enter Brazil, but he must be in quarantine. You will ask me “Alex, how did that happen in Copa America?” ‘. Ah yes, a special protocol is set up for these players and then there is what we call the bubble protocol, it enters through an airport, and it is monitored by the local authorities,” explains the manager from Anvisa.
“Exception requests are made to this group of ministers who issue the decree. Anvisa is currently being consulted, and other ministries are also being consulted. Therefore, the request for exemption is addressed to this group of ministers and it is this group of ministers who decide whether or not to accept the exception. Anvisa is firm in the original protocol, Anvisa defends the original protocol and the original protocol is RT/PCR negative, 72 hours of flight and the protocol in the ordinance, and that’s Anvisa’s position. Now, Anvisa doesn’t decide the exception,” he continues.
The issue of the exception in the case of the October matches will not only serve the Brazilian national team players, who will need to undergo quarantine if the exception is denied, but also the athletes from other teams, as Brazil faces Uruguay and, if there is no exception also for athletes from foreign national teams, the Edinson Cavani, of Manchester United, cannot even step on Brazilian soil if he arrives less than 14 days before he leaves the UK.
Alex Campos explains that Anvisa’s position is always conservative, but in the event of an exceptional decision by the group of ministers, what the Brazilian agency seeks is to reduce the risks.
“Obviously, when the decision is made, Anvisa cares about minimizing the effects of this generated exception, and obviously the choice of health risks is being made within a restricted group, that is, those players who can. And because that’s the case, they really come, I’ll give you an example, they’ve They already came with a negative RT / PCR, arrived in the country, do a RT / PCR test in two days, we already created a protocol to try to reduce it. It should be removed from this group, so it has a path, it has a logic, “explains the director.
“But if you ask what is the position of Anvisa, and what is the decision of Anvisa, then the decision of Anvisa is always conservative in this moment of great uncertainty, where the scientific evidence calls and calls us for a very cautious attitude, to publish variants, mutations, in which the state protocol is a protocol that corresponds With an international logic, so I think we have to limit ourselves to comply with what is already there, which is really difficult to comply with, it is not simple, it is necessary for people to cooperate, so the fact is that Brazilian football mobilizes the social, economic and institutional sectors of the country, so This is a reality,” he adds.
The servant realized that he had been tricked into the Itaquera when listening to the national anthem
In the interview, the Anvisa manager also discussed the issue of the match between Brazil and Argentina for the South American qualifiers, and says that the Argentine players Buendia, Lo Celso, Martinez and Romero had already been informed on Saturday that they should be quarantined at the hotel, but nevertheless, they went to training, in addition To go to the Neo Química Arena. He also mentioned restrictions with attempts to prevent Yunus Batista’s servant from reaching the athletes and that his arrival at the match venue occurred one hour before kick-off, but his entry to the field was an extreme act.
“He sits in an area, imagines the national anthem, and already realizes that he has been cheated there by the sporting authorities, he goes there, ‘Let’s call the civic house here, we’re trying, the decision will come’, and he calls out to me: Is there a decision? I said Yunus, no. There is a decision, there is no, this has already been overcome even by the Ministry of Health, there is no alternative now, your task is only to separate the sexes. Or enhance the isolation of these players, that simple, and the game continues, we have nothing to do with the game, we just have to choose players Others, just as Brazil had to call up different players,” says the manager.
“That was the limit, it was uncontrollable, unbearable, because it was already a repetition. On Saturday morning, they knew they had to be in quarantine, Saturday afternoon, the various authorities repeated, they broke the stone. In training at night later, the Federal Police arrive at the hotel and leave with the delegation.”
The Anvisa director also explains in the interview the cases of Willian, of Corinthians, and Andreas Pereira and Kennedy, both of Flamengo, saying that Formula 1 would also need exceptional demand and defending the critics agency over seeking the spotlight with football.
