After the first new crown case was diagnosed in Brazil at the end of February, it is still in the stage of increasing epidemic situation. Since the 13th of this month, there are more than 10,000 newly diagnosed cases every day. In Brazil, more than 13,000 people were diagnosed with new coronavirus on Monday, and a total of more than 254,000 people were infected. The total number of diagnoses exceeded that of the United Kingdom, becoming the third most in the world, after the United States and Russia.

According to reports, Brazil confirmed an additional 13,140 cases on Monday, with a total of 254,220 cases diagnosed, and 674 more people died, with a total of 16,792 infected.

The new coronavirus initially spread only in large cities in Brazil, and now it has spread to small cities and towns that are underdeveloped, and slums with poor sanitation are also worrying. The mayor of Sao Paulo, the largest city, warned earlier that the local medical system was about to collapse, and 90% of its load had been reached. Many experts and scholars believe that if the outbreak in Brazil is still not under control, then Brazil may become the next severely affected area in the global outbreak.
