You can't stop a car factory due to traffic deaths: Brazil president

Mar 28, 2020 18:43 IST

Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro, who recently tested negative for the deadly Covid-19 diseases, has cast doubt on Sao Paulo's death toll from the outbreak and accused the state governor of manipulating the numbers for political ends, without giving evidence for his claims. Bolsonaro's accusations came amid an ugly battle with Brazil's governors, who have chafed at the president's view that protecting the economy takes priority over social distancing measures "You can't stop a car factory because of traffic deaths," was his response to the 26 governors who have banned non-essential commercial activities and public services to contain the outbreak in their states.
