    “The overall number of confirmed cases - 555,383 - makes Brazil the second most affected country after the United States.”

    “Gripezinha” Bolsonaro is doing his best to follow his pal @Bunker Boy in his disastrous management of the Covid-19 pandemic. This time, the incompetence and greed of right-wing, racist politicians can be clearly measured in numbers of fatal victims.
    @Bunker Boy has added his inflammatory discourse that has fueled -- instead of calming -- the popular protest after the horrifying killing of George Floyd.

    Isn't it interesting that the protesters have completely dropped their COVID19 social distancing precautions and makes a person question what will eventually occur..

    I would remember the wry quote: “Lies, damned lies and statistics”

    Look at the official reported “statistics” by TOTAL number by each country.

    The world's most populous country where the virus pandemic originated is ranked #18

    The most second populous bordering China ranks #7

    Chile with 17 million inhabitants #13

    ...and Argentina with 45 million is miraculously at #40

    I do sympathize with the terrible losses of life and certainly would applaud Argentina's amazingly successful in keeping the COVID19 infection rate low. I just suspicion the data reported, based on earlier experiences.

    The truly sad statistic is the actual unknown rate worldwide heavenly ravaging underdeveloped countries.

    Speaking of the popular protests occurring to your next-door neighbor, the reliably trustable and honest media explains to us that the peaceful manifestation of social injustice was spontaneous and not a coordinated attack upon our nation:
