A notably maskless Jair Bolsonaro attended a pro-government rally in Brasilia on Sunday.
The president of Brazil was seen without a protective mask and in close proximity to his supporters, many of whom swamped him trying to get a photo. According to local media reports, the Brazilian leader shook hands with several protesters and carried a boy on his shoulders.
Bolsonaro has criticized the lockdown measures imposed by governors around Brazil, and has repeatedly downplayed the risks of Covid-19.
