Rio’s Mayor, Eduardo Paes, decided to play hard against those who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19 in the city of Rio. This Wednesday (12/01), the head of the municipal executive posted a message on Twitter where he said he was considering banning beer consumption. Still, precisely the traditional “litrão,” a can with a liter of beer so that they refuse to be immunized.
In an irreverent tone, Paes indicated that he will be inspired by the province of Quebec, in Canada, which has banned the consumption of marijuana and alcohol for the unvaccinated. Paes stated that he is weighing in on “taking this tram.”
