said its health system could collapse as demand grows
for emergency beds to deal with coronavirus cases.
Bruno Covas said the city's public hospitals had
reached 90% capacity and could run out of space in
two weeks.He accused those who flouted lockdown rules
of playing "Russian roulette" with people's lives.São
Paulo is one of the country's worst-hit regions, with
almost 3,000 deaths so far.Brazil's far-right president
Jair Bolsonaro has been strongly criticised both at home
and abroad for his handling of the country's escalating
coronavirus crisis.He defied global health advice on
social distancing on Sunday when he posed for photographs
with supporters and children in the capital, Brasília.
On Saturday, Brazil overtook Spain and Italy to become
the country with the fourth-largest number of infections.
