The Brazilian Ministry of Health pointed out that because Brazil has not launched large-scale virus testing, the actual number of infections may be higher. Bolsonaro’s anti-epidemic methods have been criticized, and the relationship with local officials is tense. In the face of opposition and demonstrations, Bolsonaro said on Thursday night that it was not uncommon for politicians to take more than a year after taking office.Bolsonaro also announced that it will approve a federal aid plan worth 60 billion Brazilian reals (about 83.8 billion Hong Kong dollars) on Thursday or Friday (22nd) to support the severely affected states and cities. But the governors are required to support measures to freeze public sector salary increases.
