Brazilians protest against president as 500,000 Covid-19 deaths registered

Anti-government protesters took to the streets in cities across Brazil as the nation’s confirmed death toll from Covid-19 soared past half a million.

Many critics blame President Jair Bolsonaro’s attempt to minimise the disease as the reason behind the toll.

Thousands gathered in downtown Rio de Janeiro waving flags with slogans such as “Get out Bolsonaro. Government of hunger and unemployment.”
