A Visual Look at Brazil During COVID-19

A Visual Look at Brazil During COVID-19


Brazil has been in the international spotlight this week as President Jair Bolsonaro protested against his own government. Videos and photographs have shown a lack of social distancing occurring. President Bolsonaro has continued to prioritize the economy and has been dismissive of the virus and its severity. 

The country currently has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in Latin America with over 43,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Brazil and 2,741 deaths according to the Brazilian government, as of April 21, 2020. 

Over the last few months Premise has been measuring how COVID-19 is impacting our networks around the world. In addition to measuring awareness, understanding and behavioral changes surrounding COVID-19 we have been able to catch a glimpse of how communities around the world are experiencing this pandemic through photos. Here are a few examples submitted by our users in Brazil.
