Coronavirus, Bolsonaro’s Brazil and elsewhere

This 12 June 2020 video says about itself:

Brazil‘s symbolic COVID-19 ‘graveyard’

Brazilians critical of their government’s ambiguous response to a surging coronavirus pandemic dug 100 graves and stuck black crosses in the sand of Rio’s Copacabana beach in a tribute to the people who have died so far.

So far, 40,000 Brazilians have died from COVID-19 and still counting. These are conservative official figures.

The crosses remind me of the many crosses put on a beach in the USA, to commemorate the thousands of soldiers then-President George W Bush sent to his wars to die.

Dutch NOS radio reports today that a fanatical Bolsonaro supporter has smashed some of the crosses.

NOS radio also reports today:

Many coronavirus patients [not admitted to hospitals, so supposedly ‘mild’ coronavirus patients] still have serious health problems months after their healing. This is evident from a survey conducted by the Lung Fund and the CIRO knowledge center among 1622 people with such complaints.

More than 90 percent of the respondents say they have problems with simple daily activities, such as walking. 85 percent say he or she was in good health before the infection. Now that is only 6 percent.
