RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Saturday, May 8, called the parliamentary inquiry commission (CPI) installed in the Senate investigating possible omissions of his government in managing the coronavirus pandemic, which has already left almost 420,000 deaths in the country, an "embarrassment".
"It is an embarrassment; they only talk about chloroquine. But on the contrary, one offers no alternative. Has anyone here already taken it?" asked the ruler to a group of supporters at the door of his official residence in Brasilia.
