Coronavirus Updates: Brazil sees largest single-day COVID-1 death toll

Brazil reported a record single-day spike in coronavirus-related deaths on Thursday.

The Brazilian Ministry of Health registered 1,349 deaths from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, surpassing the previous single-day record set on Tuesday. That brings the national toll to over 32,500, the fourth highest of any country in the world.

The actual death toll is believed to be much higher due to insufficient testing.

Brazil also has one of the highest tallies of COVID-19 cases in the world, second only to the United States. More than 584,000 people in the South American nation have been diagnosed with the disease so far, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.
