Official statistics list more than 10,000 Covid-19 deaths in Brazil. The real number is likely at least twice as high and it is growing at a terrifying rate. Meanwhile, neo-fascist President Jair Bolsonaro is encouraging far-right street protests and pushing to open the economy in the coming weeks.
International solidarity is needed now more than ever.
