Jair Bolsonaro fined. The authorities of the Brazilian state of Maranhao have imposed a sanction on the president for causing gatherings and not wearing a mask during an event in Acailandia in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. For the Superintendencia de Vigilancia Sanitaria (Suvisa) of Maranhao, Bolsonaro did not respect “the obligation to wear a mask” as a preventive measure and “promoted gatherings with more than 100 people without health checks”, as reported by G1, specifying that the amount of the fine has not yet been defined. Yesterday, the Brazilian health authorities confirmed 76,855 new cases of Covid-19 and 2,215 deaths due to the pandemic.
