After Anvisa’s action left the Argentina national team at the start of the game with the Brazilian team, drawing attention to the ban of people traveling to the United Kingdom for 14 days prior to their arrival in Brazil, there could be problems if If the CBF receives the release of English clubs from calling athletes working in the Premier League and does not want to release the supervisory body’s initial position, Tite can surface with his own team.
In an interview with Mauro Cesar Pereira on the Dividida program UOL Channel, Anavisa director Alex Campos says the agency’s position in terms of exceptionalism is conservative and that as citizens of Brazil, players will be required to spend 14 days in quarantine upon arrival in the country, a factor that has prevented, for example, For, from last weekend’s performance by Willian Corinthians. On the other hand, he acknowledges that an exception can be made, as it depends on the prior approval of a group of ministers, in the same way as for the Copa América holding in the country in July.
“Anyone who has a history of passing through these 14 countries, which is foreign, cannot enter Brazil, they must do a quarantine outside Brazil. Therefore, if you have passed in the last 14 days in the United Kingdom, India and Africa South, they cannot enter Brazil if they have been in these countries in the past 14 days. Brazil is an exception to the rule, he can enter Brazil, but he has to be in quarantine. You Will ask me ‘Alex, how did this happen in the Copa America?’. Ah yes, a special protocol was set up for these players and then what we call bubble protocol, he enters through an airport, monitoring it local authorities”, explains director Anvisa.
“Requests for exceptionalism are submitted to this Group of Ministers that issued the Ordinance. Anvisa is currently consulted, as well as other Ministries. Therefore, requests for exceptionalism are addressed to this Group of Ministers. and it is the Group of Ministers who establish whether or not they will accept the exceptionalism. Anvisa stands firm in the original protocol, Anvisa defends the original protocol and the original protocol is negative RT/PCR, 72 hours after the flight and The protocol which is in the ordinance is that it is a state of non-visa. Now, the non-visa does not decide on exceptionalism”, he concluded.
In the case of the October Games the issue of exceptionalism would serve not only for the players of the Brazilian team, who would have to undergo quarantine if the exception was denied, but also for athletes from other teams, as Brazil faces Uruguay and, if foreign. Manchester United’s Edison Cavani may not even set foot on Brazilian soil if he arrives with less than 14 days from the United Kingdom’s departure, with no exception for athletes on national teams.
Alex Campos points out that Anvisa’s position has always been conservative, but in the case of an extraordinary decision by the Group of Ministers, what the Brazilian agency wants is to minimize the risks.
“Obviously, when the decision is made, Anvisa is concerned with mitigating the impact of this exception, apparently making a health risk choice within a restricted group, i.e. players who can. Because it is so is, they already come, let me give you an example, they already come with negative RT/PCR, come to the country, do RT/PCR test with two days, we actually at least To try to establish a protocol, to be removed from the group, so it has a trajectory, it has a logic”, explains the director.
“But if you ask what is the position of anvisa, what is a decision of anvisa, the judgment of anvisa is always conservative in this moment of great uncertainty, where the scientific evidence calls us and invites us to a position of great caution. , for the spread of variants, mutations, in which country’s protocol is a protocol that complies with an international logic, so I think we should restrict ourselves to what already exists, to follow It is already difficult, it is not easy, it is necessary for people to cooperate, so the fact is that Brazilian football organizes the social, economic and institutional sectors of the country, so it is a reality”, he adds.
While listening to the national anthem, the server realized that he had been tricked into Itaquera.
In the interview, the director of Anvisa also discussed the matter of the match between Brazil and Argentina for the South American qualifiers, saying that the Argentine players Buendia, Lo Celso, Martínez and Romero were informed in advance on Saturday. that they should be quarantined. hotel, but still, they left for training, in addition to visiting the Neo Quimica Arena. He also referred to obstacles with attempts to block the Younes Batista server from reaching the athletes, and stated that his arrival at the match venue took place 1 hour before kickoff, but that his entry into the field was an extreme act.
“He’s sitting in a field, he listens to the national anthem, he already realizes he was duped by the sports officials, there he goes, ‘Let’s call the civil house here, we’re trying ‘A decision will come’, and he calls me: ‘Is there a decision?’ I said Younes, there is no decision, no, this has already been done away with by the Ministry of Health, there is no longer a choice, your mission is just to isolate or promote the isolation of these players, as simple as that “And the game goes on, we have nothing to do with the game, we just have to pick other players, like Brazil had to call different players”, says the director.
“That was the limit, it was impossible, impossible, because it was already a recurrence. In the morning, on Saturday, they know they should be in quarantine, on Saturday afternoon they are repeated by various officials, they break the quarantine. are in training at night, later, the federal police arrive at the hotel, they leave with the delegation”, he concluded.
The director of Anvisa also spoke of the affairs of both Corinthians’ Willian and Flamengo’s Andreas Pereira and Kennedy in interviews that Formula 1 would also require an extraordinary request and defend the critics’ agency looking for the spotlight with football. .
