In Brazil, a congressional inquiry has reportedly recommended President Jair Bolsonaro be charged with crimes against humanity over the handling of the pandemic.

The report is the culmination of six months of hearings that have revealed a series of scandals and corruption schemes within the government and the errors that led to hundreds of thousands of deaths.

But consultant on Latin America, Richard Lapper, says it’s unlikely Mr Bolsonaro will face any repercussions.
