This headline was borrowed from the front page of the Canadian media

Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro’s misdeeds could add up to tens or even hundreds of thousands of additional lives due to covid 19.

« The risk of mutation associated with the « proliferation » of the virus on Brazilian soil could jeopardize the ongoing global fight, » Duke University researcher Miguel Nicolelis told The Guardian on Wednesday.

« What is the point of getting Europe or the United States out of the pandemic if Brazil continues to serve as an incubator for the virus? « he noted.

Brazil’s difficulties are exacerbated by the failure of the vaccination campaign, which to date has protected about nine million people, out of a population of more than 200 million. »

Globalization could once again take on a morbid meaning. The multiplication of travel could, like the myth of Sysiphe, spread Covid and its variants to lands that would be free of them.
