The coronavirus has been spreading heavily in Brazil lately. On Tuesday, the grim milestone of more than 4000 coronadodes was passed for the first time in one day. The country has, apart from the United States, the highest number of coronadodes and infections in the world.
President Bolsonaro seems to raise more and more resistance in his own country because of his coronation policy and attitude towards the virus. According to critics, he handles it too easily in the Trumpian way. Bolsonaro says he doesnt want the economy to be at the expense of heavy lockdown measures. More than 5 million Brazilians have been vaccinated, about 2.5 percent of the population.
