Mayor Fuad’s risk carnival turbine dengue

The mayor of Belo Horizonte, Fuad Noman (PSD), until this Friday (02/02), behaves oblivious to the announced chaos. It is predictable potential pressure risk about the capital’s fragile public health structure during Carnival 2024. But, it will not be a privilege for the capital of Minas Gerais. Other municipalities in Minas Gerais and other states are on the knife’s edge of dengue.

It is time, then, for the Mayor to show the opposite, of commitment to the population. But, it is clear, the focus is on re-electionthat is, chips at Carnival, playing for newspapers, radios and TVs.

Yesterday (01/02), for example, in an otorhinolaryngology clinic, on Av. Afonso Pena, in Escritores, Zona Sul, scenario was scary. It was complete proof of the lack of mobilization of public authority.

Between 12:19 pm and 1:33 pm, the waiting hall of that clinic (closed and air conditioning on) shook. About 40 children, teenagers, adults and elderly people they literally jostled each other: chairs practically force people to touch other people’s butts. Some were coughing, sneezing, etc. Just one person wore a respiratory protection sanitary mask.

Related Matters:

A doctor on the clinic’s team clarified that the establishment cannot require the use of a mask: “Hospitals and clinics follow the Protocols of the authorities (City Hall, State and Federal Government)”. Translation: it is, therefore, up to the public health authority to determine individual preventive procedures and attitudes in closed crowded areas.

What is missing, Your Mayor?…

Neither City Hall nor State publish Protocols

This morning (02/02), in an interview, the Secretary of State for Health, Fábio Baccheretti, was asked why there was a record number of dengue cases in Belo Horizonte. It sucked! The authority, doctor in political functionI was prepared for another topic: opening a unit.

It would, however, be the case that the Government of Minas appears committed to the population. Announce, for example, broad, efficient and reliable preventive measures, accessible throughout the State. Responsible attitudes, it is proven, cost much less to the public coffers, in addition to minimizing the consequences on the population.

Moral of the opera: it seems that Neither the Government of Minas Gerais nor the City of Belo Horizonte have Protocolseven with dengue statistics rising to space.

At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a collapse in the public hospital network across the country. The greatest chaos was in Manaus (AM), where the frightening number of deaths forced municipal cemeteries to open areas for burials in shallow graves. Image from April 2021.

2 million extra revelers; Carnival of chaos announced

Back to the mayor of Belo Horizonte. Fuad, if he doesn’t change his stance, he will continue with image of committed only to Carnival. He knows, for example, the names of “blocks” in the neighborhoods and the best times to party. It should, however, be mirrored in the concern of his colleague from the city of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes (PSD): he admitted a situation of dengue epidemic.

Fuad shows sparkles in his eyes as he predicts (will there be a count?) the arrival of 1 million to 2 million revelers the city. This battalion, if it comes, will jostle for the “blocks”.

Abdicating a firm administrative stance will then be the same as, post-Ash Wednesday, enhancing parades of funeral parlor blocks. This happens both on the streets of the capital of Minas Gerais and in the cities where the expected revelers come from.

The mayor of Belo Horizonte, therefore, begins to remember pathetic and criminal attitudes of former president Jair Bolsonaro (PL). The former head of Planalto (2019-2022), took on administrative and public postures who contributed to the sad statistics greater than 700 thousand deaths (March 2023) associated with Covid-19. The pandemic is practically forgotten, however, didn’t go away.
