Geneva, July 2 (RHC)-- Brazil’s official coronavirus death toll is set to pass 60,000, second only to the United States.  The World Health Organization warns the pandemic is the worst in the Americas, where the number of COVID-19 deaths are projected to nearly triple to 627,000 by October 1. 

Carissa Etienne, the WHO’s regional director for the Americas, said: “As we are seeing countries, states and cities that do not embrace preventive measures, or relax restrictions too soon, can be flooded with new cases.”
