Coronavirus crisis is a ‘media trick’, says Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro
Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro has dismissed coronavirus threat as media ‘hysteria’ over coronavirus, he said he would only catch a ‘little cold’ and was not concerned about the virus.
Bolsonaro claimed a wave of pot-banging protests, which entered their sixth night on Sunday, were a part of a media-backed plot to topple him as two opinion polls suggested widespread discontent with Bolsonaro’s behaviour.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain, 9 April 2020:
‘Disastrous’ Bolsonaro presidency won’t meet Covid-19 challenge, Lula charges
JAIR BOLSONARO’S presidency is a “disaster” for Brazilians as the coronavirus crisis sweeps the nation, former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva says.
If Mr Bolsonaro does not U-turn on his approach to the pandemic — which he has repeatedly dismissed as “a little flu” — he would be unlikely to cling to power till the end of his term in 2022, Lula, as he is commonly known, said in an interview with Associated Press.
“Those who need liquidity at this moment are poor people — they need it to buy soap, hand sanitiser. That’s who needs liquidity — not the financial system.”
This man feeds fear rather than hope for his country. Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the world. Does his skepticism about Corona remedy that situation?
No, not all.
