Trump says he is considering travel restrictions on Brazil

BY MORGAN CHALFANT - 05/19/20 05:00 PM EDT

President Trump said Tuesday that his administration is considering placing travel restrictions on Brazil as the South American nation struggles under an increasing number of coronavirus cases.

“We are considering it. We hope that we’re not going to have a problem,” Trump told reporters during a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday afternoon, specifically citing concerns about Brazilians going to Florida.

“Brazil has gone more or less herd,” Trump said, adding, “They’re having problems.”

Brazil currently has the third-most coronavirus cases of any country globally, behind the United States and Russia, according to official statistics. The country has reported more than 260,000 cases of the novel coronavirus and has recorded more than 17,500 deaths related to COVID-19.

Brazil’s hospitals, particularly in the country’s largest city of São Paulo, are said to be overwhelmed by the surge in cases. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, meanwhile, has been seen joining demonstrations protesting stay-at-home orders.
