Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s alienation with coronavirus does not seem to give him sympathy from protesters calling for his resignation.

Demonstrators, who were upset at Bolsonaro’s response to the outbreak, placed a cross representing the victims of COVID-19 outside the Brazilian Congress in the capital, Brasilia, on Tuesday.

Protesters, including trade unionists, indigenous peoples and LGBT activists, submitted a petition to Congress calling for his impeachment.

Bolsonaro has been widely criticized for downplaying the impact of the pandemic. The traditional leader of Kretan Kaingang said the demonstrators also wanted to respect the fighters who were killed during the pandemic.

Brazil has confirmed more than 74,000 deaths, the second highest in the world behind the United States.

So far, nearly two million people have been infected with the corona virus in Brazil.
