The first Covid-19 infection case was registered in Brazil during the Carnival causing a new sanitary problem and deepening other economic, political and moral problems already existing in our society.
The size and the diversity of Brazil require a central coordination to organize the sub-national efforts and to manage the distribution of the scarce medical resources among different regions. The central government response, besides denying the importance and the extent of the Pandemic, was rather insufficient: the federal government often boycotted sub-national governments’ initiatives by discrediting local governments and by adopting contradictory policies. Consequently, there wasn’t a unified strategy that would have benefited all regions of the country both in sanitary and economic terms.
