05:00 Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro again criticized the country's lockdown measures on Sunday, as the known number of cases in Latin America's worst-hit country passed 100,000. 
"The destruction of jobs by some governors is irresponsible and unacceptable. We will pay a high price in the future," Bolsonaro said at a rally in the capital Brasilia. The president has repeatedly clashed with regional governors, in charge of deciding how to respond to the virus, on their handling of the outbreak. 
The president also attacked Congress and the courts in the wake of the resignation last week of his justice minister, Sergio Moro, and the Supreme Court's decision to block Bolsonaro's chosen successor last week. 
"We have the armed forces on the side of the people, for law, order, democracy and freedom," he said. "Enough with the interference."
