Protesters in Brazil and around the world gathered to denounce President Jair Bolsonaro's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as the Latin American country recorded its worst week in terms of new cases.

The "Stop Bolsonaro" protests were staged online and on the streets in Brazil's main cities and in more than 20 other countries on Sunday, demanding the right-wing leader's resignation and calling him a threat to democracy.

Brazil registered its highest number of infections at 259,105 in seven days through Sunday, according to health ministry figures.

The country also reported its second-highest weekly death toll, with 7,005 people killed, just below the record of 7,285 set the previous week.
