Brazilians protest against lockdown measures
It’s not just in the US that some people are protesting against the impact of lockdown measures.
Hundreds of people took to the streets of Brazil’s largest cities on Saturday to demand an end to the restrictions, which are also opposed by President Jair Bolsonaro.
The demonstrators rode cars and other vehicles through Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia against lockdown rules put in place by Brazilian states.
Bolsonaro has previously called coronavirus “a little flu” and recently fired his health minister, who had urged people to observe social distancing and stay indoors.
The country has the largest number of confirmed coronavirus infections in Latin America, with almost 37,000 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University. More than 2,000 people have died.
