    The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, told citizens to stop ‘whining’ about Covid, despite the virus having killed more than 260,000 people in the country. 

    The far-right populist made the inflammatory declaration on Thursday, as Brazil’s already dire Covid situation deteriorated and its average daily death toll rose above that of the United States.

    ‘Enough fussing and whining. How much longer will the crying go on?’ Bolsonaro asked supporters in the midwestern state of Goiás, where nearly 9,000 people have died.
