Covid-19 in Brazil: Bolsonaro in charge?

Latin America is the “new epicenter” of the global coronavirus pandemic, according to WHO. At the forefront is Brazil, the second most affected country in the world behind the United States, with more than 22,000 deaths and nearly 350,000 cases confirmed as of May 24. But for many researchers, official figures from the Ministry of Health underestimate the true extent of the pollution.

Is this assessment inevitable for a large country like Brazil, or whether, on the contrary, it should be taken into account Jair Bolsonaro, this president who multiplies the crowds in violation of the instructions on social distance? Debate with our guests, around Raphaël Kahane.
