Monitoring Desk:

The novel coronavirus has killed over 3,64,000 people across the globe since the outbreak of the pandemic that reached almost all corners of the world. The virus has also infected more than 5.9 million people in the world, according to John Hopkins University’s data. Over 2.4 million patients across the globe have recovered from the novel coronavirus.

Increasing US deaths: 

As the American death count from coronavirus ticks above 100,000, the panel assembled by President Donald Trump to confront the pandemic has been sharply curtailed while the White House looks ahead to reopening.

Vice President Mike Pence convened the White House coronavirus task force on Thursday for the first time in a week. The group of doctors and high-ranking administration officials, which met daily even on weekends at the height of the pandemic, has seen its formal sessions reduced from three per week at the start of May to one per week now, according to White House schedules.

This time Brazil: 

Brazil’s daily coronavirus deaths have been higher than the number of reported fatalities in the United States over the last two days, as the country’s health crisis grows and controversy swells around President Jair Bolsonaro.

The Brazilian health ministry said Tuesday that the country reported at least 1,039 deaths over the last 24 hours.

At least 683 people died from coronavirus in the US during the same time period, according to Johns Hopkins University’s tally of cases. Brazil reported at least 807 coronavirus deaths on Monday. The US had 498 deaths during the same period.

As of Tuesday night, the total national death toll in Brazil stands at 24,512. The Brazilian health ministry on Tuesday said there were at least 16,324 new cases of novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours, bringing the nationwide total of cases to at least 391,222.
