The number of virus deaths in Brazil is now the second highest in the world-otgnewsupdate

Brazil became the second deadliest country in the world with 41,828 deaths on Friday, according to the Ministry of Health.

In the last 24 hours, 909 deaths were recorded in the country. The ministry said there were 828,810 confirmed diseases in a population of 212 million.

Experts say the actual number of cases in Brazil, Latin America's largest country, could be 10 or 15 times higher.

The United States still has the highest number of deaths and cases in the world.

Three-and-a-half months after the first virus outbreak in Brazil, the outbreak is far from over, although some major cities, such as Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, have moved to reopen their economies.

The state of Sao Paulo, home to 46 million people, has so far been the hardest hit, with 10,368 deaths - a quarter of the country's total - and 167,900 infections.

Rio de Janeiro has seen 7,417 deaths and nearly 78,000 incidents.

As of Friday, there were 41,481 deaths from COVID-19 in the UK.
