INSS again demands expertise for sickness aid, even with the pandemic

São Paulo – Even with the increase in the number of cases of covid-19 in Brazil, the Bolsonaro government has demanded, since last Monday (30), medical expertise to grant the anticipation of sickness aid. Forensics, now called temporary disability aid, had been suspended in May, at the beginning of the pandemic.

However, in many cities in the interior, INSS agencies have not yet reopened, as expert doctors are also reluctant to return to the face-to-face function. As a result, many workers have to travel to the nearest city to guarantee the benefit, increasing the risk of becoming infected.

On the other hand, with the advance of R $ 1,045.00, the income of the 1.2 million workers who received sickness benefit during the pandemic fell by 40%, according to Social Security specialist Remígio Todeschini.

In addition, with the expertise required, even those who are entitled to disability retirement due to accidents at work are being denied requests. The expert also pointed out that between April and September this year there were approximately 100 thousand fewer records, compared to the same period last year.

“These workers lost between R $ 1,000 and R $ 3,000, essential for survival, family maintenance, medical treatment and the purchase of medicine. This is absurd. It’s a crime, ”said the interview specialist André Gianocari, to the Your Newspaper, gives TVT, this Thursday (3).

Union sickness benefit

The National Confederation of Agricultural Workers (Contag) assesses the current unfavorable scenario for resuming medical expertise, as this requirement sometimes forces sick workers to travel for kilometers. Contag’s Secretary for Social Policies, Edjane Rodrigues, advises the worker to look for the union in his category. These bodies will be able to advise on the necessary documentation and indicate the nearest INSS agency.

Union denounces the death of 20 teachers by covid-19 after back to school in SP

São Paulo – The Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) held a demonstration today (4) denouncing the death of at least 20 teachers by covid-19 since the beginning of the return to school in the state of São Paulo Paulo. The entity also accounts for 1,861 confirmed cases of covid-19 in 850 schools. The protest took place in front of the State Department of Education of the government of João Doria (PSDB), after a motorcade through the streets of the capital of São Paulo. In addition to honoring these teachers, the act also called for an immediate suspension of classes until the new coronavirus pandemic is controlled in the state.

The demonstration began in the Masp free space, on Avenida Paulista. From there, the teachers went to the State Department of Education, at Praça da República. “It is unacceptable what the Doria government has been doing with teachers. Without closing schools, keeping thousands of teachers and staff and millions of students circulating every day, many in public transport, Doria and her Education Secretary reveal themselves as they are: enemies of life ”, said the president of Apeoesp and state deputy, Professor Bebel.

The Doria government has not released records of confirmed and suspected covid-19 cases in schools for two weeks. Much less if there was a death by covid-19 of teachers, students or other education workers. In the only balance sheet released on February 16, there were 741 confirmed cases and 1,133 suspected cases.

Folly

Although it claims that back to school amid the covid-19 pandemic is safe, the Doria government has restricted access to the Education Information and Monitoring System for Covid-19. With that, the governor leaves the assessment of the resumption of activities without any transparency. Only one server from each school can be registered and access the system, both to notify suspected or confirmed cases of the disease at school, and to monitor the general situation of the pandemic in the public school system.

The Secretary of State for Health of São Paulo, Jean Gorinchteyn, defended, on Tuesday (2), the closure of schools across the state due to the worsening of the pandemic of covid-19. He admitted that the increase in the circulation of people promoted by the return to school has contributed to the worsening of the transmission of the new coronavirus in recent weeks, as teachers and health experts have always said it would happen. Today, São Paulo has 17,802, with 9,910 in the ward and 7,892 in the ICU, the largest number in the entire pandemic.

“If we understand that people are threatened
against the virus, against the collapse (of the health system), we have to reevaluate
situations that could be avoided. One of them is the situation of the school. THE
The problem is not the school, but the movement of people. Teachers, students, parents
who take and bring their children. Even in public transport, the exposure that the
we end up putting people. At this point, it is worth noting that this
question of not having classes, ”said Gorinchteyn, in an interview with CBN radio.

Restrictions

In addition to the case records and the denunciation of the death of these teachers by covid-19, Apeoesp also highlights data from the Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual (HSPE) that shows the exhaustion of intensive care units (ICU) after returning to school. According to the internal bulletin of the HSPE, on Monday (1), the ICU occupancy for patients with covid-19 in the hospital is 95%. In wards, the occupation is 73%.

Yesterday, Doria announced that the entire state will enter the red quarantine phase for two weeks, starting on Saturday (6), due to the worsening of the covid-19 pandemic in São Paulo. However, he decided to keep the schools open. “Despite the restriction measures, state schools will continue to open their doors at the worst moment of the pandemic”, criticized Bebel, who guaranteed the continuation of the teachers’ strike, which started on February 8.
