A person wearing a snake’s dress came to get the vaccine
The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, is being mocked in his own country for his vaccination. Bolsonaro said last year that those who get the vaccine will become crocodiles. At the same time, now people wearing crocodile and snake dress are reaching to get the vaccine. Klinger Duarte Rodrigues is one of such people who arrived wearing a snake dress to get the vaccine. Rodrigues’s relative had died due to Corona. Seeing the dress worn by her, it became viral on social media.
People in the country are criticizing the government for not handling Corona properly. So far 5.45 lakh people have died due to corona in Brazil. Apart from this, most of the deaths have occurred due to slow pace of vaccination and delay in buying the vaccine. Because of this, Bolsonaro is on the target of the people. An environmentalist said that if the government had procured the vaccines faster, today many people would be with their loved ones. This is the reason that there is a lot of resentment among the people about the policies made by the government regarding Corona.
