Brazil is severely affected by Covid-19, with the second highest number of confirmed cases in the world, and the number of fatalities is growing daily. It is a growing epicentre for the virus.
There are varying measures and restrictions in different states of Brazil. For example, the Governor of Sao Paulo has extended social isolation measures in the state until 31 May and has not put the state in full lockdown, despite rising Covid-19 case numbers.
The country is also experiencing political turmoil at the highest level, with the President downplaying the impact of Covid-19 and disagreeing with social isolation measures put in place by state governments.
