The management of President Jair Bolsonaro and the new variants of the coronavirus have created a catastrophic scenario in Brazil, making it the global epicenter of the pandemic. Journalist Cícero Pedrosa Neto tells us about a community historically abandoned by the Brazilian State, which is an extreme example of what has caused the government to neglect the pandemic.
