The city of Sao Paulo is currently imposing restrictions as the number of new cases of COVID-19 in Brazil continues to rise sharply.

However, many Brazilians continue to ignore local government regulations. Brazil’s President himself – Mr. Jair Bolsonaro – also said that a blockade or closure is not necessary.

The COVID-19 outbreak has killed about 12,000 Brazilians in the past week, more than any other country.

With a total of 275,000 deaths and more than 11.4 million cases, Brazil currently ranks second in the world in terms of deaths and COVID-19 cases, behind only the US, where the rate of disease spread is declining significantly thanks to the extensive immunization program.
