Brazil recorded 1,262 deaths in the past 24 hours, the highest number since the pandemic began, and there are already 31,199 people who lost their lives due to COVID-19, a situation President Jair Bolsonaro has regretted, but he said, “It’s the fate of everyone.”
The Department of Health reported in its latest installment that 28,936 new cases were registered, which corresponds to 555,383 worldwide.
At the exit of the Alvorada Palace, where Bolsonaro is in the habit of standing in front of his stalwarts to shake hands and criticize his opponents, the President was asked a few words for the victims and replied that death ” Destiny is all over the world “.
It is not the first time that the far-right president has been frugal and distant in his comments on the victims of the pandemic in the country he presides over. When Brazil exceeded 2,500 deaths, he said he was not a “gravedigger”.
