Brazil’s Bolsonaro warns that he may act by decree against Covid restrictions

Bolsonaro alluded to demonstrations held last weekend by his supporters against those measures and said that "the people are going to the streets" and "are willing to give their lives for freedom", a claim to which the Government will not be indifferent.

"No one can be happy if they do not have freedom," said the president at an event on telecommunications, in which he again criticized the restrictions on the movement of people, already greatly relaxed but still in force in many cities in the face of a pandemic that has already killed more than 410,000 people in Brazil.
