THE NATIONAL COORDINATING COMMITTEE TO COMBAT THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS REVOKED

On Monday (23/05), President Jair Bolsonaro revoked the creation of the National Coordinating Committee to Combat the Covid-19 Pandemic. This committee was formed by the presidency of the Republic, the presidents of the Senate and the Federal Chamber and by an authority nominated by the National Justice Council President. The revocation takes place one day after the official end of the state of “national health emergency” (Espin) because of Covid-19, event that had been announced a month in advance. The end of the Espin, however, does not mark the end of the pandemic itself. The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to consider that the world is experiencing a Covid pandemic.
