The number of coronavirus deaths in Brazil has now surpassed 500,000 – with thousands taking to the streets to demand the president’s resignation.

Jair Bolsonaro has been accused of failing to acquire vaccines fast enough, prioritising unproven treatments for COVID-19, and questioning whether mask wearing is necessary.

A further 2,301 deaths have been confirmed in the past 24 hours, and experts fear the outbreak – already the world’s second deadliest – may worsen because of government failures.
