After stating last Tuesday (8) that he could "extend emergency aid now, for another two or three months, because the pandemic is there”, the minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, said in an interview to UOL that the government should extend the installments ranging from R$150 to R$375 for another three months.
According to Guedes, the president Jair Bolsonaro (no party) and the Minister of Citizenship, João Roma, will decide the number of installments based on more concrete data from the Ministry of Health on the pace of vaccination of Brazilians.
"The governors are saying that in two or three months the adult Brazilian population will be fully vaccinated, so we will renew it for two or three months," Guedes had said last week.
It is worth remembering that the 2021 emergency aid will be paid only to those who received the benefit in December 2020. It is estimated that around 45,6 million Brazilians will be benefited.
