Brazil, the second most affected country by the coronavirus after the United States, is approaching the millionth case of COVID-19 with doubts about when the peak of the pandemic will arrive and imbued with a precipitous de-escalation that will bring football back to Rio de Janeiro this Thursday.

In its latest bulletin, the Health Ministry recorded a total of 978,142 infections and 47,748 deaths from the disease, after adding 22,765 infected and 1,238 dead in the last 24 hours, on the third consecutive day with more than 1,200 new deaths.

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), Brazil, with 210 million inhabitants, accumulated the highest number of infections (183,686) and deaths (6,835) in the world in the last seven days, not counting the enormous underreporting.

The WHO said, however, that it sees some stabilization of the pandemic in the country, but warned that it is still too early to say that the so-called peak of the disease has been reached, about which there are few certainties and many questions.
