By Paul Dennis

3 June

Globally, the total confirmed cases of Covid-19 have reached over 6,404,000 with over 380,000 deaths and 2,747,000 recoveries.

Brazil has the second most confirmed cases of Covid-19, behind only to the US.

The number of cases in Brazil has grown significantly in the past week, suggesting that the pandemic is far from under control.

The death rate in Brazil also continues to climb at more than 149 deaths per 1,000,000 population.

Cases in the US are still on the rise. With the current protests going on monitoring needs to continue, in order to ensure the pandemic has peaked and a second wave can best be mitigated.
