RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazil has recorded 307 new COVID-19 deaths and 17,246 new cases of coronavirus, the Ministry of Health said Saturday when President Jair Bolsonaro said he was not concerned about delays in introducing vaccinations in Latin America largest country.
Brazil now has nearly 7.5 million confirmed cases and 190,795 deaths from the virus, ministry data showed.
Bolsonaro, one of the world’s most famous coronavirus skeptics, has come under fire for his handling of the outbreak. More recently, he has come under pressure because of the introduction of vaccines in Brazil, which is still unclear in the face of the global vaccination battle.
While walking in Brasilia on Saturday, reporters asked him if he felt pressured over criticism of the slow adoption of vaccines.
“Nobody pushes me to do anything, I don’t care,” he said in a video broadcast on CNN Brasil.
