According to the city, the authorities went to the city’s sanitary-epidemiological surveillance headquarters and followed the vaccination campaign.
During the visit, Quiroga mentioned planning for immunization in the country, with the first dose applied to 100% of the estimated population before October.
“And we have a commitment that has already been assumed with the Brazilian population and put into practice with the results we are already seeing: reduced mortality and strong progress in the vaccination campaign. More than 50% of the Brazilian population that has been vaccinated has been vaccinated with the first dose of the vaccine.. September will be vaccinated 100% with the first dose and 50% with the second dose with the doses we have already received.”
The minister also said about the concern about the delta variant in the country, especially on the triple border between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, which justifies sending additional vaccines to Foz do Iguaçu, Guerra, Santo Antonio do Suduest and Paracao.
“All the variables that may be important in relation to Covid-19, are reasons for interest. We have just over 100 cases of delta variant identified, which was only possible thanks to the efficiency of health surveillance in Brazil. These cases are isolated, plus Their contacts, so that community spread is avoided. What is important? It is important to move forward with the vaccine. So that we can contain the variants, create a kind of epidemiological cord to vaccinate the border population, to prevent variants that come from another country from getting here in Brazil And pay special attention to our dry borders.”
