The country of Brazil, just like many other countries throughout the world, is still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences towards animal and human health. 

Brazil has been proactive towards the start of the year with coronavirus concerns that were growing to hit the top of the peak with their cases reaching to 271,000 people roughly. As of May 21, there have been 17,000 new cases reported to show the increase in the virus still. 

According to writer Darlington there are reports about a law in Brazil to halt the virus. The virus has spread to many different parts throughout the country, making sure that there is an absolute necessity for a mask to be worn. Talking about congress making a next move in their country to combat this virus.

Launching a public service announcement about the health standards and requirements needed. “Amid the spiraling health crisis, Brazil’s lower house of Congress approved a proposed law, which would make the use of personal protection masks in public spaces mandatory.

The proposed law would require people to wear any form of face covering in areas that are accessible to the public, including parks, sidewalks, public transportation and even private buildings where there is a high level of foot traffic. Individuals not wearing masks would be fined up to $52.”
