Brazil became the second country after the U.S. to pass 500-thousand deaths from the coronavirus.
And five hundred roses were set on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach on Sunday, to memorialize the brutal milestone.
The symbolic display was created by activists from Rio de Paz,a non-governmental organization, that also criticized President Jair Bolsonaro's attempt to curb the disease.

"At the head of the republic, there is a president who violated all sanitary norms from the beginning of the pandemic. He underestimated the lethal power of the virus, participated in anti-democratic public demonstrations, stimulating the agglomeration."

Only about 11 percent of Brazil's population have been fully vaccinated.

Thousands of Brazilians protested in nationwide demonstrations on Saturday to denounce the administration for the management of the pandemic.
