Epidemiologist report: Brazil, Mexico, and Peru experience worst day yet for Covid-19 deaths

By New Statesman

Comment from Natasha Karim, managing epidemiologist at GlobalData Healthcare:

“Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 4,364,000, with over 297,000 deaths and 1,560,000 recoveries.

“In Latin America, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, and Chile will be countries to watch as each continues to experience a record number of daily cases or deaths.

“Daily mortality reached all-time highs in Brazil, Mexico, and Peru. Additionally, Brazil set a record high with 11,385 new daily cases, and [surpassed] France’s total cases. In Chile, a significant spike of more than [a] 60 per cent increase in daily new cases triggered a total lockdown of the nation’s capital.

“In China, Wuhan launched its mass testing drive in response to a resurgence of cases observed over the weekend. While some residents are supportive of this initiative, others are concerned over further spreading the infection while waiting in long lines.”
