Abstract

The analysis focuses on the multifaceted impact of the coronavirus pandemic in Brazil. Besides its health and socioeconomic consequences, the pandemic has also accelerated and deepened other crises evolving for a long time, explicitly concerning intergovernmental relations and public policy management. One of the arguments is that the actions of the current government to deal with Covid-19 are detrimental to the cooperative type of federalism that is in place in Brazil in the last thirty years.

 

A análise examina o impacto multifacetado da pandemia de coronavírus no Brasil. Além de suas conseqüências sanitárias e socioeconômicas, a pandemia também acelerou e aprofundou outras crises que veem evoluindo por um longo tempo no país, explicitamente quanto às relações intergovernamentais e a gestão de políticas públicas. Um dos argumentos é que as ações do atual governo para lidar com a COVID-19 são prejudiciais ao tipo de federalismo cooperativo que existe no Brasil nos últimos 30 anos.
