Brazil was one of the three countries in the world most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of the total and relative number of deaths. With an increasingly aging population, 75.1% of deaths from the virus at one point in time were of elderly people. This article discusses the impact of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s negative stance toward the country’s vulnerable situation and, above all, toward the elderly population. Without state protection, the elderly could only count on civil society action to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.
