Brazil Covid-19 Cases Exceed 1 Million.

On Friday, June 19, 2020, Brazil health ministry announced that the country has exceeded a milestone of one million Covid-19 cases, as the pandemic continues to surge in the country.

The health ministry said it had recorded 54,771 new infections, a jump it said was largely due to “instability” in its reporting system, which meant some states were reporting figures from multiple days.

That brought the total number of infections in Brazil to 1,032,913, with 48,954 deaths — second only to the United States worldwide.

Despite the grim figures, the infection curve in Brazil is finally showing signs of flattening.

It has recorded daily death tolls of more than 1,000 on each of the past four days.
