The coronavirus epidemic continues to wreak havoc all over the world. Most outbreak of the virus is currently seen in Latin America. Several parts of the world recorded record deaths on Friday, while the pace of the epidemic has slowed in most countries of Europe, Asia, and the United States.
Mexico and Brazil, the two largest countries in Latin America, recorded a record number of coronavirus infections and deaths almost daily this week. As of data released by Johns Hopkins University, Brazil reported more than 330,000 positive cases as of Friday.
Brazil has overtaken Russia in second place in the case of infected patients. Now America is ahead of it. More than 21,000 deaths have been reported in Brazil, although experts believe the exact number is higher.
Mexico reported the highest number of one-day deaths from Corona ever. 479 people died on Friday, which is more than 424 deaths on Wednesday. The country reported 2,960 new cases. However, the Department of Health has acknowledged that the actual number is probably several times higher due to Mexico's low test rate.
Experts said rising deaths in Latin America have shown government action in an area where millions of people have informal jobs and many police forces are weak or corrupt and unable to enforce sanctions.
The United States and China are the two largest economies in the world and unemployment is on the rise. The President of the US Federal Reserve has estimated that one in four Americans may be unemployed. In China, analysts estimate that one-third of the urban workforce has become unemployed.
Meanwhile, many people are being infected in other countries due to the Coronavirus epidemic, which has increased the concern of scientists. Scientists worry about the second global wave of coronavirus.
