Brazil may become the new epicenter of coronavirus infection; the country’s President Jair Bolsonaro still believes that the virus is a “small flu.” This version is put forward by scientists.
“We have all the conditions here for the pandemic to become serious,” said Paulo Brandao, a virologist at the University of Sao Paulo.
It is known that now in Brazil, 62 thousand people are infected with COVID-19, and 4200 have died from the virus. Scientists assume that more than 1 million people could get sick.
Even before President Bolsonaro on the backdrop of the spread of coronavirus infection in the country has sacked the head of the Federal police Mauricio Vallejso. The politician did not give a reason for removing a high-ranking law enforcement officer from office.
