Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday criticized the closure of schools and shops in some parts of his country for the coronavirus, which he compared to a flu or cold.

During a pronouncement on national television and radio, Bolsonaro expressed his rejection of the measures adopted by some of the country's governors who, as in the state of Sao Paulo since this Tuesday, have declared the entire population in quarantine, and stood against "transportation ban" and “mass confinement" to contain COVID-19.
"We must return to normality. Some state and municipal authorities have to abandon the concept of scorched earth. The transport ban, the closure of trade and mass confinement," he said.
"There is no reason to close schools," when "in the world" those most affected by the pandemic are people over 60, he added.
"A cold"
He also said that because of his "athlete record," if he were infected himself, he would feel nothing or suffer "a flu" or "a cold"
According to the Brazilian president, his government is adopting all the necessary measures to protect the population, but without the "hysteria" and the "panic" that, in his opinion, "some media" spread throughout the world.
"They spread exactly the feeling of fear, having as their flagship the announcement of the large number of victims in Italy. A country with a large number of older people and with a totally different climate from ours. The perfect scenario, powered by the media, for true hysteria to spread throughout our country," said Bolsonaro.
In Brazil, more than 2,200 coronavirus cases are reported at the moment and the death toll amounted to 46
