RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Covid-19 health crisis has aggravated the low levels of support for democracy and the disenchantment with governments that most Latin American citizens displayed before the pandemic, according to the Latinobarómetro survey released on Thursday (7).

According to the survey, conducted in 18 Latin American countries, support for democratic regimes peaked in 2010, at 63%, after which it began a decade . . .
