Once again, shouts of Fora Bolsonaro (Bolsonaro Out) accompanied banging pots, pans, and other utensils in demonstrations in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro neighborhoods, where calls for the resignation of the far-right president were also heard.

The reactions of the population are a response to the former Army captain's stance in the face of the coronavirus crisis.

Bolsonaro refuses to apply restrictive measures to fight the coronavirus pandemic and minimizes its seriousness. On more than one occasion, he has compared it with a cold or a flu.

Latest data from the Ministry of Health confirms that about 159 people with coronavirus have died in Brazil, and 4,579 have been infected.
