Written by wave FM on March 31, 2021
Brazil’s President JAIR BOLSONARO is facing the biggest crisis after the heads of the army, navy and air force all quit and the country recorded its highest daily Covid-19 death toll.
The unprecedented resignation of the defence chiefs is being seen as a protest at attempts by President BOLSONARO to apply undue control over the military.
Meanwhile, reports said President BOLSONARO’S popularity has plummeted over his response to Covid-19.
Nearly 314,000 people have died, with a new daily record of 3,780 on Tuesday.
