Biometry of newborns becomes mandatory
The Ministry of Health Ordinance, upon request of the National Council of Justice (CNJ), will make it compulsory to identify palmar All the Brazilian newborns, together with the biometric identification of the mother.
The change was published on Monday (5/2), in the Official Gazette (DOU), Portaria 248 of the Ministry of Health. According to the note, the Health Surveillance and Health Care Secretariats will have 90 days to define the standards of procedures to be adopted in maternity wards.
Biometric data must be included in the Declaration of Live Births (DNV) and stored in the registry in which the child is registered, for use in the National Civil Identification Database. The initiative will contribute to the prevention of trafficking and disappearance of children, will reduce the exchange of babies in the maternity ward and, in the future, will reduce the bureaucratic process for those who had stolen documents.
In Brasilia the biometric identification of newborns served as "project pilot "for the national expansion of the program. Named a "Small Citizen", the project has been in operation since 2017, following the sanction of District Law 5.804 / 2017, authored by district deputy Juarez Carlos de Oliveira (PSB).
The biometric identification will be integrated into the National Identity Document ), which will incorporate other documents already validated, such as the CPF, the Electoral Title and the National Digital Enrollment Card (CNH).
The project is currently in the testing phase. Only officials from the Ministry of Planning and the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) can do the document. The estimate is that, from July, all Brazilian citizens can request the document, which will be accessed by an application on the cell phone.
Miscarriage is a terrible personal experience that unfortunately affects about 15% of clinically identified pregnancies and is one of the most common obstetric complications. Unfortunately, the reason that led to the loss of the fetus is quite difficult to determine. However, in recent years, studies have shown that genetic alterations play a key role in this complication.
However, researchers are not sure whether the crying expressed by babies is related to a state of pain or not. In fact, according to scientists, this manifestation has to do with how the baby will communicate with the mother when it is born. Experts believe that the development of facial expressions of fetuses become more complex according to the advances in pregnancy.
