Rio de Janeiro: Official data showed that Brazil had killed 27,878 coronaviruses last Friday, surpassing Spain, which was hit hard, and ranked fifth in the number of deaths.

The Ministry of Health stated that the epicenter of the Brazilian South American Coronavirus outbreak killed 1,124 people within 24 hours.

It also has a record number of new cases-26,928 cases a day, bringing the total number of infections to 465,166.

The United States, the United Kingdom, Italy and France rank among the top in the world in the death of coronavirus.

As of Friday, Spain has recorded 27,121 deaths, of which the number of viral deaths has rapidly decreased. Brazil may soon overtake France, which has already killed 28,714 people.

Among the confirmed cases, Brazil ranks second, although it lags far behind the United States, which has 1.7 million infected people.

In Brazil, 131.2 deaths per 1 million people are caused by coronavirus, compared with more than 300 in the United States and 580 in Spain, but the epidemic has not yet peaked in South American countries.

The Ministry of Health said that “the peak will not be foreseen during the outbreak”. Experts say that the number of cases in Brazil may be 15 times higher than the confirmed number because extensive testing has not yet been conducted.
