With 79,671 deaths reported so far, Brazil also broke the monthly record of 66,673 deaths in March.

April´s second week was the most catastrophic, reporting over 4,000 deaths in just 24 hours during two days.

Sao Paulo continues to be Brazil´s coronavirus epicenter, reporting 95,532 deaths and 2,888,158 cases.

Due to the growing and alarming figures, a parliamentary commission was set up to probe the Senate´s performance in the face of the health crisis.

Recently, Federal Deputy and Former Health Minister Alexandre Padilha denounced President Jair Bolsonaro for his genocide, after creating a ‘death row’ that led Brazil to lead the world´s daily reported coronavirus death toll.

Bolsonaro was also target of questioning in the European Parliament for his negative stance and the so-called necropolitics against the virus.

Complaints emerged in a session to discuss the impact of the pandemic in Latin America and how the European Union can help Latin American countries to fight coronavirus.

Such debates tried to analyze the relationship between high social and economic inequality and the spread of the disease in the region, but accusations against Bolsonaro ended up dominating the session.

‘By action or omission, Bolsonaro’s necropolitics is a crime against humanity that must be investigated,’ said Spanish MEP Miguel Urbán.
