RIO DE JANEIRO — As countries rushed their preparations to inoculate citizens against the coronavirus, Brazil, with its world-renowned immunization program and a robust pharmaceutical manufacturing capacity, should have been at a significant advantage.
But political infighting, haphazard planning and a nascent anti-vaccine movement have left the nation, which has suffered the pandemic’s second-largest death toll, without a clear vaccination program. Its citizens now have no sense of when they may get relief from a virus that has brought the public health system to its knees and crushed the economy.

Not only the vaccination plan, but everything, without exception, is chaotic in Brazil today.

We could even write a book: 'How not to run a country.'

Prejudice, discrimination, violence, corruption, and all kinds of bad examples are in the media for people of all ages to see.

But fortunately it won't last forever.
