Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has once again minimized the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, assuring that the majority of people will be infected.
“I am in the risk group, but I never doubted that I would catch it someday. Unfortunately, I think most of you will catch it someday,” said the Brazilian president during his visit to the community this Friday Bagé.
Bolsonaro has encouraged his followers to “face up” to the pandemic and to wonder “what citizens are afraid of” despite the increase in coronavirus cases and deaths in the country. According to the newspaper “Folha de Sao Paulo”, the president appeared at certain times without a mask.
“I’m sorry, I regret death. People die every day for different reasons, that’s life,” said Bolsonaro, who added that his wife Michelle Bolsonaro is now infected after the President has overcome COVID-19.
