Coronavirus-related death toll in Brazil hit 15,046 on Saturday, more than all Latin American countries combined.

According to a running tally of the Johns Hopkins University, the number of coronavirus infections in Brazil has risen to 222,877 while it registered a daily record of 13,944 new cases on Thursday.

In all over Latin America and the Caribbean, the death toll nears 28,000.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, however, continues to put pressure on state governors and mayors to immediately ease lockdowns and reopen the economy.

He believes the economic devastation induced by coronavirus measures will cause abject poverty and more serious consequences for the Brazilians.

As coronavirus cases spike in Brazil, the country remains in the grip of a political crisis.
