Bolsonaro under investigation over false statements about Covid-19

Rio de Janeiro The Brazilian judiciary is to investigate President Jair Bolsonaro for making false statements about the coronavirus pandemic. The move was ordered by a judge at the country’s Supreme Court, according to a statement issued on Friday. In a live broadcast on social media in October, Bolsonaro made a connection between the Covid-19 vaccination and AIDS. Bolsonaro has played down the virus since the beginning of the pandemic and rejects protective measures and restrictions. (dpa)
