VALENTI, Vitor E.  y  SILVA, Alan Patricio da. The effect of negationism on public health. J. Hum. Growth Dev. [online]. 2021, vol.31, n.2, pp. 189-191. ISSN 0104-1282.

Negacionism refers to the choice to deny a scientifically proven reality, which can reduce life expectancy and quality of life. Within this context, the uncontrolled trajectory of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Brazil has generated great concern due to the lack of consensus on how to manage the pandemic in a scenario of denial of the seriousness of the disease by the government, since on August 2nd, 2021, there are 556,437 Brazilians killed due to the disease. The denial of COVID-19 and the immunizing agent is another pandemic and turns the current scenario into a syndemic.

Palabras clave : negacionism; COVID-19; vaccine.
