Thousands of protesters gathered in support of President Jair Bolsonaro and against the governors in front of the National Congress in Brasilia, on Sunday.
People, including some religious groups, criticised the social distancing measures imposed by state governors due to the coronavirus spread.
«My country, my Brazil, it's democratic and there is no way we are going to have communism here. The importance of us being here is for our nation to have the freedom and that we can unite all our brothers from other nations as well as share what God left to us here on earth,» said protester Maria Noronha.
Bolsonaro, who is recovering from the virus, repeatedly downplayed the danger of the disease, focusing on the importance of the country's economic well-being.
