I have been conducting Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 102 days and have written 162 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 102 days.
Brazil has become the second country in the world (after USA) to cross 50,000 COVID-19 related deaths. USA has reported almost 122,000 deaths.
On Friday, Brazil had become the 2nd country to cross 1,000,000 (1 million or 10 lakh) cases and had set a new world record of 55,209 new cases in a day. Brazil started emerging as the world’s top hotspot for the Coronavirus pandemic in mid-May. In the last one week, Brazil’s growth rate in cases has been 2.76 times that of USA.
It took Brazil 54 days to reach its first 10,000 deaths, 12 days to reach 20,000 deaths, 11 days to reach 30,000 deaths, 10 days to reach 40,000 deaths, and now 9 days to reach 50,000 deaths.
On June 4, Brazil reported its highest ever single-day tally of 1,492 deaths. In the last 5 days, Brazil has reported an average of 1,188 daily deaths. or 22.4% of total worldwide deaths. In the last 30 days, Brazil has reported an average of 999 daily deaths, or 22.64% of the global deaths. In comparison, USA reported an average of 847 daily deaths, which is 19.19% of the global deaths.
Brazil’s Fatality Rate (percentage of deaths) at 4.68% is lower than the global Fatality Rate of 5.24%. Brazil’s Fatality rate was 5.53% just 15 days ago and has come down substantially.
