airlines have also been allowed to fly with fewer crew members because of the positive case explosion within their staff. According to Ethel Maciel, "the pressure on public health services is already very strong and the next two weeks will be decisive in observing the impact of end-of-year holiday contaminations on hospitalizations." But this specialist does not care about a new murderous wave as a year ago in Brazil, "when vaccination was only in its infancy."

Nearly 70% of Brazilians are totally immunized and the vaccination of children from five to eleven years started this week, despite President Jair Bolsonaro's criticism. The head of state, which has always minimized the gravity of the pandemic, assured that he would never vaccinate his daughter Laura, eleven years, and he himself is non-vaccinated.
