These are terrible days in Brazil. The Covid situation is completely out of control. The pandemic that the Bolsonaro government has long neglected, either by explicit choice or by implicit inability, has reached its peak: in the country there have been at least (the estimate is by default) 360 thousand deaths and in recent days the deaths are proceeding at a rate of more than 3000 per day. At least 800, it is estimated, the cases of Covid deaths of children.

A dramatic situation, aggravated by the fact that the vaccination campaign is proceeding slowly, either with Chinese vaccines (whose effectiveness is very doubtful) or with Russian vaccines (which have serious production problems). Medical personnel are also in short supply, as are medicines, ventilators, places in intensive care.
But that is not all. For reasons more than anything else political and propaganda (President Bolsonaro is a convinced denier, although he himself had Covid) the blockades in Brazil have been and are very loose and the city of Sao Paulo has announced that it will start in the next days will give the green light to the (few) closed activities.
