I want to see the Brazil leader gets the cronovirus and be in extensive care with the ventilator and I then quote him 'it's just a flu'.

Its been terrible for developed Western economies, but when covid-19 takes over in places like Brazil, India and Africa things will be get very ugly very quickly. Developing countries simply dont have the resources to fight it.

It shows, that we will never know how many really have died from covid19. Countries are just too poor to run full testing.

Brazil had a horrendous lack of leadership in facing the oncoming storm. Again, warnings were dismissed by "leaders".
