Brazil closes border to Venezuelans as coronavirus outbreak worsens

Brazil on Wednesday closed its border to Venezuelans for an initial 15 days, citing strains on the public health system from a worsening global coronavirus outbreak and what its president described as Venezuela’s inability to respond to the epidemic. The 15-day ban on Venezuelans entering Brazil could be extended, it added. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced the measure on Tuesday amid mounting criticism of how he has handled the coronavirus crisis.
