Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, a day after Brazil hit 100,000 deaths from COVID-19, slipped this Sunday that the detention measures could also be responsible for the deaths of thousands of people during the plumbing crisis.
Bolsonaro, who has always opposed restriction as a strategy to deal with the pandemic, has again resisted these measures, using an article from the British tabloid Daily Mail for reference.
“It is found that detention caused the deaths of two out of three people in the UK. In Brazil, the numbers would not be very different without official figures,” Bolsonaro wrote on his Facebook account.
The above article refers to data from the UK Department of Health that estimates that between mid-March and early May, around 16,000 people died of various diseases during the health crisis because they had no access to the health system, for the 25,000 who died. because of COVID-19.
