Brazil - Can it Weather the Pandemic and Bolsonaro's Politics?

To date, Brazil has recorded more than 13 million Covid-19 cases, recently breaking a tragic new record with 4,000 Covid-related deaths recorded in one day. President Jair Bolsonaro's administration has been heavily criticised for mishandling the pandemic, and plunging the country into an economic sinkhole from which recovery seems difficult. We speak to Mac Margolis, Bloomberg Opinion columnist about the politicisation of Brazil's vaccination rollout, what's next in Bolsonaro's political career, and what Brazil needs to rehabilitate its struggling economy.
