President Jair Bolsonaro was hit with increasing criticism for a slow response.

He already had been slammed by the left and the right for downplaying the health risk and for delaying a rescue of the economy.

With aid package help to many as 24 million citizens working in the informal economy without any benefits, representing more than 10 percent of the population.

Brazil could face “economic collapse” in a month’s time due to stay-at-home measures to stem the coronavirus outbreak, with food shortages and “social disorder,” Economy Minister Paulo Guedes warned Thursday.

Brazil, Latin America’s biggest economy, is also the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the region.

But far-right President Jair Bolsonaro — who appeared alongside Guedes, his free-market economics guru –opposes stay-at-home measures to slow the virus, saying they are unnecessarily damaging the economy.

“Within about 30 days, there may start to be shortages on (store) shelves and production may become disorganized, leading to a system of economic collapse, of social disorder,” Guedes said.

“This is a serious alert.”

Bolsonaro, who has compared the new coronavirus to a “little flu,” said he understood “the virus problem” and believed that “we must save lives.”

“But there is a problem that’s worrying us more and more… and that’s the issue of jobs, of the stalled economy,” Bolsonaro added.

“Fighting the virus shouldn’t do more damage than the virus itself.”

President Jair Bolsonaro was hit with increasing criticism for a slow response in helping the poorest during the crisis.

Bolsonaro tug of war on saving life and saving economy , workers in Brazil’s informal economy suffered most because of the stay-at-home recommendations he opposes that were put in place by governors and mayors.

He insists Brazilians should be allowed to go back to work, with exceptions for at-risk groups like the elderly or those with underlying health problems.

But the governors counter that Bolsonaro has not released enough federal funds for them to fight the pandemic. Most of the country’s states and cities were already strapped for cash before the crisis, they say.

Even the wealthy governor of Sao Paulo state, João Doria, who made a fortune in marketing, backs stronger state intervention.

“By saving lives, we will be able to save the economy,” Doria said last month.

Doria, one of Bolsonaro’s strongest critics, said his own decision to shut down the state of Sao Paulo Brazil’s most populous generated intense opposition from his private sector friends, including otne who called him “upset, enraged.”

“I told him that at the end of this pandemic, I will have helped save his life, his family,” Doria said. “And that is because we are taking the right measures.”

Sao Paulo received about $20 billion in emergency federal funds at the start of April but nothing since then, Doria said.

Brazil’s Senate is expected to vote next week on a package of nearly $17 billion for states and cities to compensate for economic losses. Although the lower house of Congress approved it, Economy Minister Paulo Guedes has said handing out the emergency aid would be like doling out a blank check.

Guedes, a free market beliver rallied on Bolsonaro’s victorious 2018 presidential campaign with promises to privatize many state-owned companies, cut government spending and open up largely closed sectors of the economy to more foreign investment.

Despite Guedes’ aversion to giving out federal funding, Bolsonaro’s administration has acknowledged a need for financial relief.

Caixa slashed interest rates on overdrafts and credit card installment payments, and the government allowed all citizens to withdraw the equivalent of one month’s minimum wage about $195 from state-run retirement accounts required for all working Brazilians. The federal government is also sending doctors to some coronavirus hot spots, like the Amazon city Manaus, where coffins have piled up in common graves. Media agencies.
