Brazil sets another record for daily coronavirus deaths

Source: Reuters

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazil registered another new record number of new coronavirus deaths over the last 24 hours, the health ministry said on Tuesday evening, as the pandemic in Latin America's largest country shows no signs of slowing down.

The country registered 28,936 additional cases of the novel coronavirus, the ministry said, and 1,262 deaths.

There are now 555,383 total confirmed coronavirus cases in Brazil and 31,199 coronavirus deaths.

Is it just a coincidence that countries with illiberal, populist leaders like Trump, Bolsnaor or Putin are experiencing the most COVID-19 deaths?

2. Lots of countries worse off in deaths per 1M pop and cases per 1M pop

though tests per 1M pop is very low compared to most (probably all) developed countries. And an extremely high 60% positive test rate.

3. As COVID-19 sets up in the favelas...

Brazil will be fucked. I’m devastated for my friends who are from there and for their families. Most of my Brazilian friends live abroad and it’s been months since they’ve been able to travel home.
