Brazil Reports Over 57,000 Covid-19 Positive Cases In 24 Hours
Brazili Health Ministry has reported exactly 54,771 Conoravirus positive cases in one day, bringing the country’s total infection to 1,032,913.
The officials while announcing this said about half of increase was due to delayed reporting in three states, including São Paulo.
In addition, there were more than 1,200 deaths for the fourth consecutive day, taking the total to nearly 49,000.
President Jair Bolsonaro has been heavily criticised for his response to the crisis.
The far-right leader has repeatedly clashed with state governors and mayors over their strict restrictions to curb the spread of the virus. His approach has also led to the resignation of two health ministers.
The United States has the highest cases and deaths in the World. More than 2.2 million cases and over 120,000 deaths have been confirmed in America.
