The Brazilian Ministry of Health confirmed 101,147 diagnosed cases of the new coronavirus this Sunday after 4,588 positive cases had occurred in the last 24 hours, while the number of deaths rose to 7,025.
Brazil, the country in the region most affected by Covid-19, registered 275 new deaths on the last day and reached 7,025, which is higher than in Germany. This makes Brazil the seventh country with the most deaths from the United States, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, France and Belgium.
Health experts have warned, as the O Globo newspaper said, that Brazil, which is ninth in terms of positive results, will peak in mid-May.
Although the health crisis in several countries, such as that of the Amazon (northwest) and Ceará (northeast), has led to the collapse of the health system, some areas are at risk due to the lack of resources and personnel.
