“President Bolsonaro failed to take seriously the need to mitigate the potential impacts of the pandemic, ignoring scientific findings that were against his beliefs and showing more concern about an economic recession than the spread of the virus” (Urban & Dinaz, 2020).

President Bolsonaro recently “watered down” a law requiring mandatory masks stating that it was unconstitutional. A few days later, President Bolsonaro tested positive for Covid-19.

“Our President is a joke…There is so much denial on his part and nothing has been done since the pandemic started”, explained Babi.

What started out as a quick summer getaway ended up lasting until the Brazilian winter. Adjusting to her new normal, Babi is unsure of her future and when she will be able to visit the United States again. Only time will tell and an end to the pandemic. Babi believes that everyone should wear masks to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, regardless of what President Bolsonaro says.

“It doesn’t hurt and still saves lives. I really don’t get people who make this such a big deal.”

Babi’s story is one that everyone can relate to with Covid-19 changing the lives of people all over the globe. The only way for 2020 to recover what it has left is for everyone to listen to Babi and wear masks.
