Brazil's health minister resigns after just weeks on the job”

Brazilian Health Minister Nelson Teich has resigned after less than a month on the job over what an official said was "incompatibility" with President Jair Bolsonaro's approach to fighting the country's spiraling coronavirus crisis.

His resignation came a day after Brazil's confirmed cases of the virus passed 200,000, with more than 14,000 deaths.

At his news conference, Mr Teich did not reveal why he had stepped down.

The Minister and the President also disagreed over the sit-at-home order and also on the pace of kick-starting the economy.

Bolsonaro has been pushing in recent days for wider use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for coronavirus, which Teich resisted.

Mr Teich's predecessor Luiz Henrique Mandetta stepped down over similar disagreements with Mr Bolsonaro.

"His exit after less than a month in office is a clear and visible manifestation of how the health ministry was already dysfunctional".

The country has become the latest coronavirus hotspot and rather than politicians trying to tackle it together, the pandemic has turned political and the leader of the country is failing to provide direction for a population which really needs it.

On Monday, the press informed Teich of the president's decision to increase the list of essential activities to include beauty salons, gyms, and barbershops.

Governors who have taken a more cautious road than Bolsonaro's during the pandemic praised Teich's efforts, with Rio de Janeiro Gov. Wilson Witzel, a former ally of Bolsonaro, saying "no one can do serious work with interference in ministries and in the federal police".
