The House of Representatives approved this week a bill that allows companies to buy immunizers that are not registered with the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa), but have the endorsement of international authorities.

- This is not the time to be 'ah, because the private sector will get in line', we need to stop this, let's unite - said Queiroga.

He also rejected the title of "world threat" that Brazil has been receiving due to its difficulty in dealing with the pandemic.
