WHO named the new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic

South America became the new epicenter of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Brazil was the hardest hit, said Michael Ryan, Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Health Emergency Programme.

He said the number of reported cases in that country was approaching 300,000. Most of them occur in São Paulo.

We have seen the number of infections grow in many South American countries. Of course, the situation in many of them is worrisome, but of course at the moment the most affected country is Brazil.
