Bolsonaro first defined the relationship between Brazilians and the pandemic -- opting for herd immunity -- and in pursuit of that, he rigged the rules: he encouraged concentration, lifting restrictions and using masks. Rather than advocating for testing and purchasing a vaccine, the decision was made to produce chloroquine through the armed forces and hand over responsibility to states and municipalities. The results are in sight: Brazil is on the verge of 500,000 deaths. Groups without immunity "have no choice," Bolsonaro seemed to say, a sort of no-action.

That explains why Bolsonaro "goes to crowds, he's not wearing a mask, he's not vaccinated, he's talking without scientific evidence. to the use of chloroquine", and the Ministry of Health to incinerate "nearly three million tests" if not more.
