Latin America: a veritable Coronavirus graveyard

While many countries around the world continue to ease restrictions on citizens with a view to returning to normality, the Authorities are still urging the public to maintain social distance in order to curb the spread of the virus .

The number of infections in the world has now exceeded five million one hundred thousand with more than 338,000 people having lost their lives due to the coronavirus.

In the UK in recent hours, the cononavirus has killed another 338 people with the death toll now exceeding 36,000 and infections reaching almost 250,000.

In the absence of significant action, it looks like Latin America will have the largest coronavirus infections in the world and possibly the largest number of deaths, so much so that more graves have continued being dug. Last week one in three infections worldwide were reported in Latin American countries.
