On Wednesday federal health authorities announced that the number of Covid 19 tested positive climbed to 428 including four deaths.

Bolsonaro has come under mounting criticism for his lax handling of the outbreak, which he initially labeled a “fantasy.” The virus’ spread represents a major threat for the conservative populist, who was already struggling to resuscitate the country’s weak economy.
