A second Covid-19 wave is ripping through Brazil, pushing hospitals and ICUs toward collapse and claiming record numbers of daily deaths. Many Brazilians continue to defy mask mandates and mobility restrictions. According to CNN, they are following the example of president Jair Bolsonaro, who recently said people needed to stop being sissies and whining about the virus. In total, more than 270-thousand people are known to have died due to Covid-19, making Brazil’s with the second-highest national death toll after the United States.
