On April 25, Brazil recorded an additional 807 deaths from Covid-19, compared with 620 in the United States.
This is the first time Brazil has recorded a higher number of Covid-19 deaths per day than the United States – the world’s leading epidemic region in terms of deaths and infections.
Brazil has recorded 374,898 cases and 23,473 deaths from Covid-19 while the US has 1,637 million infections and about 98,000 deaths, according to the South China Morning Post.
However, experts say that the figures do not reflect the scale of the pandemic in Brazil because the testing capacity in this country is low.
As the second largest epidemic in the world, Brazil is likely to face a dark prospect after recording soaring deaths.
Last weekend, while Brazil surpassed Russia in the “ranking” for translation, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and the security team innocently went down the street to eat sandwiches. This action of the president faced many criticisms of the people and public opinion.
Since the outbreak of the disease, Mr. Bolsonaro has taken a different and rather subjective approach. What the president is concerned about is that Brazil’s economy may collapse due to the prevention measures.
The split in anti-epidemic views and polarization in politics makes Brazil “struggling” before the global pandemic.
Like Brazil, many other countries in South America are also facing an outbreak. In Peru or Chile, the number of infections and deaths is increasing day by day.
As of May 26, 5,495,413 cases of corona virus have been recorded worldwide, of which 346,230 people have died and 2,230,746 have recovered.
