BOGOTA, Colombia 

The number of people in Brazil who have died from the coronavirus has surpassed the 1,000 mark, according to data released on Friday by the country’s Health Ministry. 

And yet, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro continues disregarding social distancing recommendations issued by health authorities in the Latin American nation most affected by COVID-19.  

Bolsonaro visited a bakery in Brasilia on Thursday, where he bought snacks, took pictures and held friendly conversations with employees, as shown by a video published on Twitter by his son Eduardo.
