Brazil sees 307 COVID-19 deaths on Saturday, Bolsonaro not worried about vaccine delays

Brazil has registered 307 new COVID-19 deaths, and 17,246 new cases of coronavirus, the health ministry said on Saturday, as President Jair Bolsonaro said he was not worried about delays in rolling out vaccinations in Latin America‘s biggest country, reported Reuters.

Brazil now has nearly 7.5 million confirmed cases and 190,795 deaths from COVID-19, ministry data showed.

On a stroll in Brasilia Saturday, Bolsonaro was asked by reporters if he felt pressured over criticism of the slow vaccine rollout in Brazil, as Latin America already started to vaccinate.

“Nobody pressures me for anything, I don’t give a damn about it,” he said in a video aired on CNN Brasil.
