Brazil could triple its death toll over the next three months.
Covid-19 pandemic will hit hard in Latin America and the Caribbean over the next three months, the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) predicted on Thursday.
According to a study conducted by the institute, positive cases and deaths will rise in the area. Brazil will be the most affected because right now, the nation “is at a grim tipping point.”
Even as the South American nation has the world’s second-highest number of infections and fatalities, only surpassed by the U.S, IHME forecasts that by next October, the death toll will triple its figures, growing up by an estimated 166,000 deaths.
