“I’d rather die having sex than die coughing.” This crude declaration was uttered by Jair Renan Valle Bolsonaro, the 22-year-old son of President Jair Bolsonaro, on the morning of April 30, as Brazil saw its Covid-19 death records shoot up. “What pandemic, man? That’s just the media trying to make you stay at home and think the world’s ending. It’s just a little flu, brother. I got it, it passed. I’d rather die coughing than die having sex … I mean, I’d rather die having sex than die coughing,” he said, during a live broadcast on videogame streaming platform Twitch.
