4000 Brazil deaths


Brazil reported a 24-hour tally of Covid-19 deaths exceeding 4000 for the first time yesterday, becoming the third nation to pass that threshold. Many governors, mayors and judges are reopening parts of the economy despite overcrowde­d hospitals and a collapsed health system in several parts of the country. Brazil’s health ministry said 4195 deaths were counted in the previous 24 hours, with the nation’s pandemic toll quickly approachin­g 340,000, the second highest in the world. Only the US and Peru have had higher daily death tolls.
