Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event was virtual in 2020. This year, a hybrid model has been adopted, with personal and video data.
This year’s theme for the Conclave is “Building Resilience through Hope: Recovering from Covid-19, Rebuilding Sustainability, Responding to the Needs of the Planet, Respecting People’s Rights and Revitalizing the United Nations.”
According to CNN, the former military announced that he would address issues such as the environment, tourism and agribusiness, as well as his government’s measures to combat the virus on Tuesday. He is expected to return home that day.
Bolsonaro arrived in New York late on Sunday afternoon and spoke with the ministers who make up his delegation.
They had pizza for dinner in a tent, as the head of state had not been vaccinated against Covid-19 and New York required a vaccination test to enter places like bars and restaurants.
The day before, Bolsonaro had also met in the famous city with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had praised the Covid-19 vaccine.
During the conversation between the two, Johnson recommended bans from the University of Oxford (UK) and the Anglo-Swedish company AstraZeneca, which is also produced in Brazil jointly with the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz).
It’s a great vaccine. Thanks, staff. Take the AstraZeneca vaccines, said the European prime minister along with former Brazilian Ratrooper.
The Labor Party chief, Gliese Hoffman, also criticized Bolsonaro yesterday for attending the General Assembly without being vaccinated.
“Bolsonaro knew he would not enter a restaurant (in the American city) because of this and came out to show off, while part of the Brazilian people are starving,” Hoffman wrote on the social network Twitter.
The deputy also described this pest as a great shame for Brazil, a food-producing country.
He also considered that eating pizza on the street is not a humiliation as the former army chief did in New York, but that “a head of state is not vaccinated.”
According to a report by the British Communications Group BBC, Bolsonaro is the only one of 19 leaders of the Group of Twenty (made up of the 19 major economies plus the European Union) present at the United Nations Assembly without a pathogen vaccination.
