Brazil passes 10,000 deaths from COVID-19 with 155,939 confirmed infections

Brazil, the worst-hit Latin American country by COVID-19, has surpassed 10,000 deaths, according to figures released Saturday by the Ministry of Health. Brazil’s numbers are high but scientists believe it could be 15 or even 20 times worse, given the country’s inability to carry out widespread testing.
