This event is organized by Center for Brazilian Studies, Latin American Institute.

Brazil has the second-highest COVID-19 death toll of any country, trailing only the United States. But as nearly 600,000 have died, President Jair Bolsonaro has undermined state and local public health measures and refused to be vaccinated. Join us to hear a panel of public health experts and journalists discuss the crisis.
