As COVID-19 rages, the Brazilian president is increasingly isolated. Parts of the military and business leaders have distanced themselves. There is even speculation he could be impeached.
Every day, at 3 a.m. (01:00 UTC) in the morning, the German-Brazilian artist Rafael Pütter dresses up as death and runs from the Brazilian Embassy to the Brandenburg Gate. There, he announces the daily COVID-19 death toll in Brazil.
On Wednesday, another record was broken when 3,869 people died. “I don’t want more people to die,” he told DW. “If a dangerous mutation spreads in Brazil, it will be dangerous for the whole world.”
