    But Dilma tells us that Brazil is a First World Country....

    “but the disease has never before been considered serious and the Health Ministry did not require medical authorities to report the cases.”
    “As of last Friday, Brazil had recorded 1,248 cases ...”

    @4 Ilsen,
    The PT is all about fool the ignorant 'petistas'...the government's latest slogan is “Patria Educadora”....well, that is the biggest lie of the 21st C, as every one knows that the quality of teaching in the Brazilian Public School System - with very few exceptions - is below criticism. Due to the Government's f*ck-up with the economy, and its own finances, in 2015, the 3 government educational programmes, supposed to help the poor : FIES (financing for students), the PROUNI (University scholarships for the poor), and the PRONATEC (professionalizing tech schools) have all been defunded, to the extent that those who aren't already in the system, can't get in, and those that are in, run the risk of being kicked out.....hundreds of thousands of students have been affected - If they want to keep studying, they need to find alternative sources of financing, at far higher interest rates, which in many cases , causes them to drop out.....And “Education” is their slogan...joke !.
    All you have to do is take a look at Lula, one of the most ignorant s.o.b.'s you could ever expect to encounter. And talking of the 9-fingered toad, a few years back, he had the nerve to state that the Brazilian Public Health System, was on the verge of becoming one of the best in the world (???) doubt he was referring to 'his' private health plan, including all the best hospitals and paid for by the taxpayer...
