As announced a month ago, Latin America is the new epicenter of the coronavirus spread. With a low level of virus response, Brazil is the most affected country by COVID-19 in South America, and the second most affected in the world, behind the US.
The number of infected people in Brazil skyrockets every day, reaching 1,4 million cases, confirmed by the Johns Hopkins University.
This devastating number and the fast-spreading virus are affecting this enormous country in every possible way, including leaving 8 million people without work.
The experts are saying that this is the strongest attack on the Brazilian economy in history, and send a massive recession warning.
The already fragile health system is fully collapsing, leaving patients and their families in despair.
Brazil is Latin America’s largest economy, but since May the unemployment rate rose to 12.3%, affecting 12.7 million people.
Recovering from the crisis caused by the pandemic will be critical for the entire world, but especially for the fragile economies of most of the Latin American countries.
COVID-19 took the lives of almost 60,000 people in Brazil, with 1,280 new deaths from today.
