Protests target Bolsonaro after Brazil's worst coronavirus week

作者:admin 2020-07-01

Protesters in Brazil and around the world gathered to denounce President Jair Bolsonaro's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as the Latin American country recorded its worst week in terms of new cases.

The "Stop Bolsonaro" protests were staged online and on the streets in Brazil's main cities and in more than 20 other countries on Sunday, demanding the right-wing leader's resignation and calling him a threat to democracy. 

Brazil registered its highest number of infections at 259,105 in seven days through Sunday, according to health ministry figures.

The country also reported its second-highest weekly death toll, with 7,005 people killed, just below the record of 7,285 set the previous week.

With more than one million registered cases of the coronavirus and 57,622 deaths, Brazil has risen in the charts as a global hot spot for the pandemic - second only to the US in the number of cases and fatalities.

Bolsonaro, who called the coronavirus a "little flu", has come under heavy fire over his handling of the crisis and his continued denial of the growing evidence of the disease's deadly impact on Latin America's most populous country.
