In several cities in Brazil, thousands of people have again protested against the Polonnaruwa government’s corona policy. More than 500,000 people have now died from the epidemic in the country.
Thousands of people took to the streets across Brazil to protest against the corona policies of right-wing President Jair Bolsanaro. In the capital, Brasilia, and 14 provincial capitals, the Corona crisis demanded more vaccines and economic support, the news site G1 reported. Protesters called for the resignation of Bolzano, for greater efforts in the fight against hunger and environmental degradation, and for the rights of indigenous peoples to be respected.
Another corona hotspot in Brazil: More than 17.8 million people have been diagnosed with the corona virus. With 98,135 cases within 24 hours, an absolute daily high was reported on Friday. The country has now crossed the half-million corona death mark. With more than 2,000 new victims daily, virologists estimate that it will soon make the United States the world’s deadliest country.
President Bolzano is at the center of the struggles.
Bolzano continues to reduce the risk
The president has downplayed the virus from the beginning and has demonstrated himself against stricter exit controls, citing economic consequences. On Thursday, the former military announced that it would develop more effective vaccines than corona virus vaccines. To combat the disease, he continues to prescribe anti-malarial chloroquine and a worm.
Meanwhile, a parliamentary commission of inquiry is examining Bolzano’s crisis management in epidemics. It turned out that by mid-2020, Bolsonaro had ignored several biotech / Pfizer offers for millions of vaccine doses. The government has been actively seeking vaccinations since March alone.
