The Brazilian government announced the extension of the Emergency Aid. President Jair Bolsonaro yesterday confirmed two extra installments of BRL 600 ($112,04) of the government’s emergency aid to mitigate Covid-19‘s losses.
The financial aid is aimed at the unemployed and low-income, informal and self-employed workers affected by the economic effects of the pandemic. The program initially had a three-month term: April, May and June. Now, it will extend the amount for another two months: but the payment may be divided into four installments.
