President Jair Bolsonaro kept silent last weekend when Brazil reached the milestone of 10,000 novel coronavirus deaths. On Monday (11), he said he lamented the loss of life, but he continued defending the need to reopen the economy.

"I regret every death that occurs, every hour. I regret it," said the president, when questioned by Folha in the late afternoon, in an interview at Palácio da Alvorada. The president exited the car without a mask, but he then put it on, alerting the press to the gesture.

Bolsonaro had initially scheduled a barbecue with friends for Saturday, the day Brazil surpassed the 10,000 victims of Covid-19. Bolsonaro canceled the event, but the president still went for an afternoon ride on a watercraft through Brasília.

The first government pronouncement came only the next day, through Health Minister Nelson Teich. The head of the health ministry said it was a day of joy, on account of Mother's Day, but of sadness on account of the lives lost.

2. His war on journalists is not working so well. He is up against the O Globo.

Bolsonaro's initial spurt of popularity is done.
He has some people still fooled, but it is certainly slipping away.

The O Globo, the media mega-giant based in Rio is finally beating him up over his lack of empathy and direction regarding the pandemic as well as his mistreatment of the media. It is impressive to watch the O Globo journalists exposing this pathetic President for what he is : a jerk.
O Globo is a revered source of information for Brazil and the journalists are taking a solid stand against his attitude and exposing his repetitive bad administrative decisions.

What is happening in Brazil right now is horrific, they already had a lack of everything; and with the crumbling infrastructures on top and now this mayhem, this chaotic death epidemic; and an idiot for President.
