    The cemeteries of Rio are and have always been full,just like all the medical centers. This not uncommon for third world nations.

    I have read and researched life in the Favelas. All those talking against the masks are the ones that would love the Favelas to disappear. Those are the white Portuguese descendants and other Europeans in Brazil. There was a human rights attorney that protected the Favelas and the homeless people in Brazil of been killed. Business owners in Brazil large cities hired criminals to killed the homeless so, they won’t sleep in their businesses fronts at night. The lady attorney was killed too. Brazil, As well as many others countries are criminally racists. Just looked what’s happening around the world manifestations due to the killings of GEORGE that had a police knee on his neck and waited minutes for George to died, even though GEORGE’s pleas for not been able to breath were ignored. Yes, Brazil has serious racism issues with their mestizos and blacks, same as the USA or worse. Note: Portugal brought more slaves to Brazil than any other conquerors before them. Read history, in history are all your answers!
