Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Pres. Joe Biden:
"This morning, three Brazilian people died from Covid-19.”
The blood drained from the president's face as, to everyone’s amazement, Biden collapsed on the floor.

His staff was stunned, watching at this display of emotion from the Commander in Chief, as he sat there head in hands.
Finally, Joe looked up and, with a shaky quivering voice, asked Dr. Fauci,
"How many is a Brazilian?”
