Description The institutional strategy for the spread of Covid-19 implemented by the federal government of Brazil is a radical expression of neoliberalism in the field of health, which may be defined as epidemiological neoliberalism. This promotion of mass immunity by contagion, seen as both scientifically mistaken and ethically unacceptable, is directly opposed to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (who). The renunciation of Brazil’s former leadership on global health issues and regional health cooperation is also explained by the ideological character of its new foreign policy and the militarization of the Ministry of Health.
La estrategia institucional de propagación de la Covid-19 implementada por el gobierno federal brasileño es una expresión radical del neoliberalismo en el campo de la salud, definida como neoliberalismo epidemiológico. Esta promoción de la inmunización masiva por contagio, considerada científicamente equivocada y éticamente inaceptable, se opone de manera frontal a las recomendaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (oms). La renuncia al liderazgo pretérito de Brasil en temas de salud global y de cooperación regional en salud se explica también por el carácter ideológico de su nueva política exterior y a la militarización del Ministerio de la Salud.
