Brazil records over 1000 deaths in single day

Campo de Esperanza cemetery workers bury a person who died from Covid-19 in Brasilia Brazil

Indeed, after interim minister Eduardo Pazuello signed off on the new treatment guidelines, Bolsonaro said he planned to keep him in the post "a very long time". Entitled "Life score", it highlighted the number of people being treated or who had recovered from the virus without mentioning those who had died.

Brazil's health ministry said in a statement that the hard-hit cities, where many indigenous people live like Tabatinga and Sao Gabriel da Cachoeira, received some help on Monday including 10 more ventilators and 15,000 masks.

Brazil has 271,628 confirmed cases, the third most in the world after Russian Federation and the US. "Worse than defeat would be the shame of not putting up a fight", said the right-wing president, a former army captain, on Twitter, explaining why the government was putting forward the drugs without proof of their effectiveness.

So far, there is insufficient evidence from medical trials that chloroquine - and a related drug hydroxychloroquine - is effective to either prevent or treat the virus.

Brazil suffered a record of 1,188 daily coronavirus deaths on Thursday and is fast approaching Russian Federation to become the world's No. 2 COVID-19 hot spot behind the United States.

The country lost its second health minister in a month last week.

"Life is made up of choices and today I chose to leave", Teich told reporters in Brasilia.

Domestic flights in India to resume from May 25
Passengers are expected to certify their status of health through the Aarogya Setu application or sign a self-declaration form. Civil aviation minister Hardeep Puri said all airports and airlines had been told to prepare for operations.

In a worrying illustration of the mounting economic pressure, Chile, which is also suffering from a sharp rise in cases, deployed soldiers on the outskirts of its locked-down capital Santiago after clashes with protesters angry about food shortages and job losses.

"Brazilians are asking to receive this medication, which has shown positive results in various clinical studies". Earlier this year scientists in Brazil stopped part of a study of chloroquine after seeing heart rhythm problems among patients taking a higher of two doses being compared.

Brazil's Health Ministry on Wednesday recommended using hydroxychloroquine and the closely related chloroquine in hospitalized patients, from the mild cases to the most serious ones.

The infection totals in Brazil and the outbreak in Argentina have propelled South America ahead of North America as the continent with the most new confirmed cases.

"And we need to give them that right, even if the number of studies is still scarce", health ministry official Mayra Pinheiro told a news conference.

Bolsonaro continues to oppose governors and mayors who are renewing stay-at-home recommendations or introducing stricter measures.

The number of confirmed cases is fewer only than in the U.S. and Russian Federation and is expected to rise even further as the outbreak is still weeks away from its peak, health experts say.
