Videographer Felipe is back in Brazil with his family who he hadn’t seen in a year. He notices that his home country handles the corona crisis very differently from the Netherlands. 

In Brazil, wearing a face mask is a political statement, for example. It shows you protest the Bolsonaro government, which according to critics hasn’t done enough to counter the spread of the virus. 

For UKrant, he’s doing a four-part vlog series on his hasty goodbye, his trip back to Brazil and life in quarantine.
