When the death toll from the Brazilian epidemic soared, why was the president eager to restart the economy?

Brazil has become one of the countries with the worst new crown epidemic. Even though epidemiologists warn that the number of deaths in the country’s new crown may increase exponentially, Brazilian President Bosonaro continues to downplay the risk of the epidemic, deflecting other officials’ obstruction, and insisting on pushing the economy to restart. Luciana Magalhaes, a correspondent for the Wall Street Journal in São Paulo, explained that Brazil’s society is richly and poorly divided, and many voters in Bosonaro are workers or vendors who have no formal work and rely heavily on daily outings to make a living The promise of economic liberalization and growth is being thwarted by the epidemic, so for Bosonaro, restarting the economy is related to his political life.
