Although the vaccine against Covit-19 is highly advanced, one-third of the Brazilian population remains vulnerable.

The status of the Govt-19 epidemic in Europe, the emergence of new variants (such as Ômicron), the number of vulnerable citizens and the low vaccination rate in South America should serve as a warning in the coming months for Brazil.

Master of Collective Health at the University of Brasilia and Ceará Health Secretary between 2003 and 2006, the expert reinforces the need for prudence with the corona virus, even though the situation in the country has improved over the past few months.
