Latin America Remains Region Most Affected By COVID-19

Some countries begin to see drop in new cases as numbers increase in others.

Latin America remains the most affected region in the world by the coronavirus pandemic, with over 8.85 million infections.
As of Wednesday afternoon, at least 328,000 people had died and some countries in the region are still experiencing high infection rates, with Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Argentina reporting large numbers of cases daily.
Of the 15 countries with the highest deaths per capita in the world, 11 are in Latin America or the Caribbean.
With 28% of the almost 31.8 million confirmed cases worldwide and a third of the more than 974,000 deaths recorded globally, Latin America remains the region most affected by COVID-19.
Brazil
The Brazilian city of Manaus may have reached herd immunity against the coronavirus without a lockdown, a study says.
According to a report by the University of São Paulo, the capital of Amazonas state experienced the peak of the curve in mid-May, when about 46% of its inhabitants had been infected with COVID-19. The city could have achieved herd immunity with 66% of its population infected so far.
Manaus was one of the hardest-hit cities by the coronavirus. Figures show the city suffered 3,300 deaths among its 1.8 million residents.
Brazil has reported 4,591,364 cases of the coronavirus and 138,105 deaths, according to health authorities.
Paraguay
The government of Paraguay has announced that land traffic on its border with Brazil will reopen with the aim of reactivating trade between the two countries.
Although Paraguay has one of South America's best records in terms of the coronavirus after imposing an early lockdown, it has reported its highest daily figures in the past few days, reaching a total of 34,828 cases and 705 deaths.
Ecuador
The country on Wednesday reported a record number of new daily cases of the coronavirus, detecting 2,249 infections in 24 hours.
Ecuador has been a hotspot of the virus in Latin America with nearly 130,000 cases reported and 11,171 deaths. -
