"Brazil will consider withdrawing from the WHO if it does not cease to be a ‘partisan political organization’, Bolsonaro told reporters in a comment on Friday.
On Thursday, Coronavirus mortality in Brazil exceeded Italy. The Brazilian Ministry of Health reported that the number of people infected in the country reached more than 600,000 people, and within 24 hours, 1,437 deaths were registered. In general, more than 35,000 Brazilians died from coronavirus.
However, Bolsonaro continues to insist on the early abolition of government isolation orders, arguing that economic costs exceed public health risks.
Meanwhile, an editorial in the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo that day stated that it had only been 100 days since Bolsonaro called the virus that is “killing a Brazilian every minute,” a "little flu".
The UN warned Latin American governments about the risk of lifting quarantine restrictions until the spread of coronavirus in the region slows down.
As we reported before, the epicenter of the global pandemic of the coronavirus Covid-19 has moved to South America six months after it appeared on the other side of the world in Wuhan, China.
