Le Brésil franchit le cap des 90 000 morts du coronavirus

Brazil, the second country where the COVID-19 kills, the most in the world after the United States, deplores 90 134 dead and was recorded Wednesday, a very high number of new cases in a day, 69-074, according to the ministry.

If the current pace continues, Brazil should reach the mark of 100 000 dead at the end of next week.
