Andreas Pereira and Willian, who are signed by Flamengo and Corinthians, respectively, are not the only ones to have recently come to Brazil from England. There’s also the Kennedy, another red and black reinforcement, that landed on Brazilian soil at the end of August. After all, should he do a quarantine? Can you already play for the club?
The blog reached out to Anvisa, who knocked Willian out of the Atlético Goianiense-Corinthian match, but did not stop Andreas from facing Palmeiras with Flamengo because he was already in the country for more than 14 days. According to the National Health Surveillance Agency, he may be subject to appropriate penalties, such as a fine of at least R$2,000, with the possibility of the case ending up in the civil and criminal spheres.
“Player Robert Kennedy Nunes do Nascimento entered Brazil on August 27 and filled out the Traveler Health Declaration (DSV). In evaluating the document, Anvisa verified the omission of information regarding its place of origin, which may constitute an irregularity both from a health and from an immigration point of view,” Anvisa replied. .
The Autonomous System associated with the Ministry of Health adds that “in view of the fact, Anvisa investigates any irregularities by establishing a health administrative procedure. Moreover, the information was also passed on to the Federal Police for appropriate measures”.
Brazilians, born or naturalized, “of origin or date of passage through the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Republic of South Africa and the Republic of India in the last 14 days, upon entering Brazilian territory, must remain in quarantine for a period of fourteen days”, reinforces the regulatory agency, Based on Decree 655.
Kennedy had Covid in England, completed his quarantine period there and only came to Brazil later. All this is recorded, in short, Anfisa knows that he arrived from England and that he respected the quarantine in the UK before traveling, however, documenting the athlete on loan from Chelsea presents problems, but nothing prevents him from playing.
