Brazil's President Bolsonaro and coronavirus | DW Documentary

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro continues to downplay COVID-19, despite having contracted the virus himself. Meanwhile, the numbers of those infected and the death toll keep rising. Bolsonaro’s response to the pandemic has divided the country.

Bolsonaro supporters march through the streets, trying to convince Brazilians that the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures are all just a bunch of hype. Meanwhile, a group of Bolsonaro opponents — soccer fans from São Paulo – prepare and deliver food to Brazilians who’ve lost everything due to the crisis. Despite the pandemic, these soccer supporters are also taking to the streets to protest against the government and for democracy. A report by Matthias Ebert and Marie-Kristin Boese.
