Don’t Ignore the Death and Devastation Caused by COVID-19

Target: Jair Bolsonaro, President of Brazil

Goal: Stop ignoring the exceeding death toll in the Amazon and instead provide the proper resources to fight Covid-19.

A total of 140 bodies were buried in just one day in the Amazonas capital city of Manaus, Brazil due to Covid-19. Officials say they expect to bury up to 4,500 people in the next month alone.

Coronavirus has began to decimate the population of Manaus, along with many other cities in Brazil. The mayor of Manaus, Arthur Virgilio, has reportedly pleaded for international assistance, though has received no help. Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has become famous for his outright defiance of social distancing and refusal to take the virus seriously.

“We aren’t in a state of emergency, we’re well beyond that. We are in a state of utter disaster…like a country that is at war-and has lost,” said Virgilio. In response to Brazil’s rising death toll, Bolsonaro reportedly shrugged his shoulders, then said, “So what. I’m sorry. What do you want me to do?” Sign below to demand Bolsonaro stop ignoring the public health disaster and instead provide Manaus and other struggling cities with the proper resources to fight Covid-19.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Bolsonaro,

Your defiance of social distancing and extreme lack of care for Brazil’s current public health disaster has led to the death of thousands.

Manaus is in the midst of a devastating health crisis. How is it that you have no interest in addressing the sickness and death of thousands of Brazilians? I demand that you stop ignoring the public health disaster that your country faces and instead provide the proper resources to Manaus and other cities in order to fight the coronavirus.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
