Coronavirus: 'The worst may be yet to come' in Brazil

As mass graves continue to be dug, communities in Brazil are attempting to stop the spread of coronavirus which has so far devastated the country – with many believing the worst is yet to come.

Brazil now has the third highest number of infections in the world, after the US and Russia. The official death toll is just over 21,000, although a lack of testing means the true number could be much higher.

    Never should have had the Olympics there. Corruption and Flith Waterways polluted. All the housing that was built for Olympian's is now abandoned and worthless. All of South America is becoming a 3rd World Continent.

    This journalist is basing the video on the local midia which manipulates numbers constantly because they want to impeach the president. We have 210 million inhabitants with 21 thousand deaths today (5-23-20) and almost 50% of contamined patients have been recovered. The Supreme Court of Brasil gave total power to the governors and mayors to administer the pandemia in their states. The president has no power over the pandemia but the local and international media continues to blame him. Those who want to impeach him want the corruption back.

    I am a brazilian from north-eastern region, in my city (Recife), since this week we are on 'lockdown', but yesterday we had the highest number of deaths. Why does this happen?
    Actually the covid doesn't matter, the people don't respect the quarantine, in my neighborhood old people go out to play domino at the square without wearing a mask, and to complete there is a police there, that doesn't make anything.
    Last year there were almost 1,5 million cases of dengue and this year won't be different.
    This is Brazil…

    We have ruined religion and forgot god. This happens to remind us that humans are not superior. A tiny virus is stronger creation than us. We as human should be humble and should live by gods law. Praying for the world
