RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is weighing candidates to replace Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello, according to people familiar with the matter, preparing to appoint the fourth person in a year in that role as COVID-19 cases rage out of control.
Following the most deadly week in Brazil since the coronavirus pandemic began a year ago, Pazuello’s job appears to be on the line even though the government, in a statement, denied that he has turned in his resignation.
More than 279,000 people in Brazil have died in the worsening pandemic.
