The PDT pre-candidate for the Presidency of the Republic, Ciro Gomes, announced the suspension of pre-campaign activities this Monday (9) for having received a positive diagnosis of Covid-19.
“Unfortunately I tested positive for Covid. The symptoms are mild and, God willing, I will soon be recovered. I am forced to suspend pre-campaign activities,” he said on social media.
“I ask those who have had close contact with me in the last few days to take their tests even if they are not showing symptoms. And I recommend everyone to take care, because the pandemic is not over!”, he added.
In October 2020, Ciro Gomes also received a positive diagnosis for Covid.
Last week, Geraldo Alckmin (PSB), pre-candidate for vice president on the ticket of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), also contracted Covid, making it impossible for him to attend the launch of PT’s pre-candidacy for the Presidency of the Republic last Saturday ( 7).
In the latest Datafolha poll, in March, Ciro Gomes was technically tied for third with Sérgio Moro, who ended up leaving the dispute.
In one of the scenarios, Lula appeared with 43%, followed by Bolsonaro with 26%, Moro with 8% and Ciro with 6%, followed closely by a squad of opponents. In other simulations, the pedestrian reached up to 8%.
