Brazil surpassed France in number of infected with the new coronavirus on Wednesday and became the sixth country in the world with more cases, according to a survey carried out by the American university Johns Hopkins. By Tuesday he had already overtaken Germany. Ahead of Brazil are now only the USA, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and Italy, and according to the available indicators, all these countries, except the USA, should be surpassed in the coming days by the South American giant, in another sign that pandemic focus left Europe for America.

The total number of deaths until this Wednesday was 12,703. The number of cases of 181,518.

And the figures for Brazil, the country with the most cases and deaths from Covid-19 in Latin America, are likely to be underestimated. Based on records from the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation and regional bodies, scientists estimate that the actual number of coronavirus cases in the country was already 1.6 million last week. The growth of almost 10 times the number of hospitalizations and 1,035% of deaths from respiratory syndromes are evidence of the underreporting of deaths and serious cases of Covid-19 in the country, reveals the G1 website.

In addition, note the The Lancet, respected magazine of the area, that the estimate of the rate of doubling the number of deaths is only five days.

Brazil also has the highest transmission rate, according to a recent study by Imperial College London, which analyzed the active transmission rate in 48 countries.

The country has performed 482,743 exams so far, of which more than 145,000 are still awaiting results. As this number of tests is relatively low and the priority is for critically ill patients, those who need to be hospitalized, the number of underreporting is high.
