Brazil may be badly affected by the Coronavirus epidemic, but its president Jere Bolsonaro wants a quick return to football as he believes that the Covid-19 disease will not have much impact on football. Brazil has been considered a synonym for football, which has given world football many legendary footballers from Pele to Neymar. Right now Brazil remains the center of the Coronavirus outbreak in Latin American countries.

The official death toll due to the epidemic in Brazil was 27,878 as of Friday and it has reached the fifth place in terms of most deaths. Football matches have not been taking place in the country since mid-March, but President Bolsonaro recently told Radio Guiba that footballers are less likely to be seriously ill with Covid-19. Bolsonaro said, "As footballers are young athletes the risk of death if they catch coronavirus would be dramatically reduced,"

Bolsonaro had earlier claimed in March that he had been a player in the past and even if he got the virus, he would still have a mild cold. The President said that his main objective behind the withdrawal of football is to remove unemployment and related problems. He said that there is no shortage of funds with the top players but it is necessary for the players of the minor regional leagues to play to run their families.

When the football matches were stopped in March, regional level matches were going on. The national championship was to start in May but no concrete plans have been made for it yet. Bolsonaro and his son spoke to the heads of two of Rio's top clubs, Vasco di Gama and Flamengo, on 19 May. Rio Mayor Marcello Crivella has given permission to start practice in June and he thinks that matches can begin to be held in empty stadiums sometime in July.
