If I were world dictator, I would immediately place Brazil under total quarantine: nobody gets in, nobody comes out.
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro regards vaccines as sissy and will not support a national program to vaccinate the population. Some state governors are trying to buy vaccines for their own local populations, but he publicly berates them as cowards for worrying about 'a little flu.' Bolsonaro is Donald Trump on stilts, and is largely responsible for Brazil’s sky-high COVID-19 death rate: more than a quarter-million dead, writes Gwynne Dyer.
