RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Minister of Economy Paulo Guedes stressed yesterday, November 12th, that should there be a second wave of infections by the novel coronavirus in Brazil, the government will once again grant emergency aid to Brazilians in economically vulnerable situations.
"If there is a second wave, it is not a possibility, it is a certainty [that the government will pay emergency aid again]," he said at the National Supermarket Day event, organized by the Brazilian Supermarket Association (ABRAS). But he stressed that he considers the probability of a new wave of infections to be "slim".
