Brazil President Bolsonaro Appoints Nelson Teich As Heath Minister

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said that he had appointed oncologist Nelson Teich as the country’s new health minister, shortly after firing his predecessor over disagreements on measures to fight coronavirus.

Bolsonaro, who has criticised social distancing measures for hurting the country’s economy, said in a televised briefing that former minister Luiz Henrique Mandetta had never treated the question of employment as it should have been treated during the pandemic.
