The Covaxin deal, which has become the neck of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, is finally over. Bharat Biotech canceled several deals with the two companies in November. The company has not given the reason for this, but in recent weeks there have been allegations of corruption against President Bolsonaro. In such a situation, the path to the elections that would be held next year seemed to be difficult for Bolsonaro. Even in a poll, more than half of those polled said they supported Bolsonaro’s impeachment.

The vaccine deal had added to the difficulties for Bolsonaro, already surrounded by much controversy and facing opposition and criticism in the country on other issues. Since the start of the epidemic, the president has been accused of not being serious in his efforts to contain it. He has always prioritized the economy and kept opposing rules like foreclosure. Not only that, he didn’t show seriousness about the vaccine and even said that people would turn into crocodiles when they got the vaccine from Pfizer.

“Support for impeachment”
According to a CNN report, a Datafolha survey found that 54% of Brazilians expressed support for Bolsonaro’s impeachment. At the same time, 51% of people admitted that their tenure was “very bad”. On the other hand, former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has indicated that he could run in the presidential elections which will be held in October 2022, and if that happens, according to Datafolha, Bolsonaro could be delayed.
