Subject to the holding of a public consultation, the government’s resistance to starting the immunization of the strip became an issue in the Judiciary. This Friday (31), minister Carmen Lúcia, of the STF (Supreme Federal Court), gave the government five days to explain the open public consultation on vaccination.

At the press conference, the minister reduced the topic by stating that the required explanations will be presented to the minister by the Federal Attorney General, Bruno Bianco.

“These explanations will be given, as they have already been given to other ministers. Normal, this is part of the democratic process”, says the minister.

As a result, the minister minimized the problem related to data blackout from DataSUS, which since the 10th has suffered instability due to a hacker attack. In Queiroga’s forecast, data stabilization should also take place in the first half of January.

Queiroga also denied that the Folder goes through a data blackout. “The Federal Police is already investigating this fact, but we are never in the dark, because the data reach the Ministry of Health, are processed within the scope of the Health Surveillance Secretariat and we monitor the evolution of the pandemic in all states and municipalities”, he said.
