Rio braces for Delta wave after first deaths recorded

Rio de Janeiro Health authorities in Brazil recorded more than 100,000 new coronavirus infections within one day on Friday, after a state belatedly submitted tens of thousands of case numbers.
The figure stood at 108,732 new infections within one day after the southern-most state of Rio Grande do Sul updated its coronavirus data collected over 500 days and submitted 64,000 new cases all at once.
The day before, Brazil had registered about 50,000 new cases. In total, more than 19.6 million people in Latin America’s largest country have been confirmed to have been infected with the virus. (dpa)
