Jair Bolsonaro has reportedly told his health minister he will sack him if he dares criticise his handling of the coronavirus crisis.

According to a report in the Estado de S„o Paulo newspaper, the Brazilian presidentís warning came during a top-level meeting on Saturday as the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country rose to more than 3,900 and the death toll hit 114.

The health minister, Luiz Henrique Mandetta, reportedly informed Brazilís far-right leader he would have no choice but to publicly criticise him if he insisted on going out in public despite warnings to stay indoors.

On Friday, the president shrugged his shoulders at the likely deaths, telling an interviewer: ďSome will die. Iím sorry. Thatís life.Ē
