Brazil’s President rejects lockdown despite 370,000 Covid deaths – BBC News



Brazil has seen more than 370,000 deaths from Covid, one of the highest rates in the world.

However the country’s President, Jair Bolsonaro, has refused to order a lockdown, to help control the pandemic.

Public health officials have urged him to do so, but the President insists the economic impact of a lockdown is worse than the effects of the virus.
