Corona pandemic: WHO calls South America a new epicenter

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared South America to be the new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. That said WHO expert Michael Ryan in Geneva. “There is great concern about these countries, but Brazil is clearly the most affected,” he said.

The country has become the central source of the pandemic in South America in recent days. According to the official figures, Brazil is the most severely affected country in the world after the USA and Russia. In total, more than 617,000 infections and more than 34,000 fatalities have been confirmed in South America. Brazil has more than 310,000 infections and more than 20,000 deaths.

However, experts assume that the number of unreported cases is much higher because comparatively little testing is carried out in Brazil.

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro is heavily criticized for his corona policy. First he dismissed the corona virus as “little flu” and “fantasy”. Most recently, he commented on the developments in the crisis with the words: “I’m sorry. What do you want me to do?”, He wants to return to everyday life with all his might.
