Brazil sets single-day record of 115,228 coronavirus infections

World | 24 Jun 2021 4:17 pm

Brazil registered a single-day record of 115,228 new confirmed coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, the Health Ministry said on Wednesday, as its outbreak shows new signs of accelerating despite long-delayed vaccination efforts finally gaining steam, Reuters reports.

Brazil has recorded the world's highest coronavirus death toll outside the United States, with more than half a million lives lost, according to the ministry's official tally.

But while the situation in the United States and most wealthy nations improves thanks to higher vaccination rates, Brazil and many neighbors in South America this month have seen their biggest outbreaks yet.
