Faced with denialist movements and against sanitary measures in the pandemic, yet another television piece tries to convince that the coronavirus is a lethal disease. Launched this Thursday 1, by the government of Bahia, the video is dedicated to explain in a minute what is, in practice, the pain of the death of a relative.
“At that table, he would always sit down, and he would always tell me what it is like to live better,” says the song that starts the video. In the images, three different families serve the meal of the day and cry in front of an empty chair, where a father, son or wife would sit. At the end of the play, it is asked, once again, that the population collaborate and respect social distance.
“At that table he is missing, and his longing is hurting me,” says an excerpt from the television play.
