Brazil’s government accused of “crimes against humanity” over coronavirus – BBC News

Brazil is suffering the impact of coronavirus infections more than almost any other country. Health workers there have called on the International Criminal Court to investigate President Bolsanaro’s government.

They accuse it of crimes against humanity over its mishandling of the pandemic, which they say has led to thousands of unnecessary deaths.

Brazil has recorded almost 2.5 million cases of the disease since March and more than 87,000 people are known to have died.

The pressure is beginning to ease in big cities like Sao Paulo, but cases are rising rapidly in smaller towns and cities in Brazil’s vast interior, where health services are often basic.
