Brazil, a South American country with a population of more than 210 million, is the country most affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, after the USA.
Brazil has been going through difficult times in recent weeks, both due to occupancy in intensive care units and the spread of P1, the more contagious type of Covid-19, which is thought to have emerged in the country’s Amazonas state.
