Brazil Covid deaths top 20k, 1200 in 24 hours

May 22, 2020 12:33 IST

Brazil has become the sixth country to record more than 20,000 coronavirus deaths. The Latin American country has reported a record high of nearly 1,200 fatalities in the last 24 hours. Experts have warned that Brazil is still a few weeks away from reaching the peak of the outbreak, and that insufficient testing means the official figures don't show the true picture. President Jair Bolsonaro has repeatedly played down the risks of Covid-19 and has urged state governors to lift lockdowns.
