SO NOT ALL A FAR RIGHT POLITICIAN AND RETIRED MILITARY OFFICER HAS LED THE COUNTRY SINCE JANUARY 2019. >> HE’LL FACE AND WE SING US TO THE SCENE OF A A FORMER PRESIDENT OF BRAZIL. THE POLLS INDICATE THAT IF THE ELECTION WERE HELD TODAY LOU WOULD HANDILY WIN. AND THAT’S BECAUSE A LOT OF BRAZILIANS FRUSTRATED WITH THE HANDLING OF THE CORONAVIRUS SO BOLSONARO IS MASK WEARING AND MONITOR SOCIAL DISTANCING CURRENTLY BRAZIL IS THE SECOND COUNTRY AFTER THE UNITED STATES WITH THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES. >> BRAZIL’S HEALTH MINISTRY REPORTED.
