How Brazil’s coronavirus response went from bad to absolute disaster


DW News shows that the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis in Brazil is going from bad to worse. Critics point to government mismanagement for the 2nd highest COVID death toll in the world. Doctors Without Borders calls it a humanitarian catastrophe. It says authorities’ refusal to adopt evidence-based public health measures has sent far too many to an early grave.
