Brazil takes to the streets against President Bolsonaro amid Covid-19 pandemic

Description

In Brazil’s largest city, São Paulo, police has used tear gas to break up demonstrations as anti and pro-President Bolsonaro rallies headed towards a clash. The biggest anti-Bolsonaro rally in months screamed for “democracy” as they marched despite Brazil being now the 5th worst-hit country by the Covid-19 pandemic, with almost 500,000 cases and over 28,000 deaths.

  • Brazil's President On Why He Won't Take COVID-19 Vaccine: I Don't Want To Turn Into A Crocodile

    With the second-highest COVID-19 death toll in the world, Brazil is experiencing a huge surge in new cases. Nevertheless, Business Insider reports the country's president, Jair Bolsonaro, says he has no plans to take Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine against the virus. Bolsonaro has already had COVID-19 and says he is now immune. He called those who criticize his refusal to be vaccinated 'idiots' and 'imbeciles. Thursday, Bolsonaro suggested that the vaccine could produce bizarre side-effects, such as women growing beards or men speaking in effeminate voices. In the Pfizer contract, it's very clear. 'We're not responsible for any side effects.' If you turn into a crocodile, that's your problem. Jair Bolsonaro President of Brazil

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
