Editor Euan Marshall talked to the BBC World News about indigenous communities at risk during the pandemic. “First of all, we have to remember that even in the best-case scenario health care in indigenous communities has always been precarious,” he said.

Around 81,000 indigenous people living in remote zones around Brazil could be “critically vulnerable” to Covid-19, according to a study by the University of Campinas (Unicamp).
