The number of infections also soared to over 2.39 million with 51,147 new cases over the past day, it added.

State of Sao Paulo, the trade center of the country with 46 million population, is considered as the most affected region from the outbreak. There are 479,481 cases and 21,517 deaths from the virus.

The country registered over 1.61 million recoveries so far.

With over 211 million population, Brazil is viewed as the epicenter of the outbreak in Latin America.

Since first appearing in China last December, the novel coronavirus has spread to at least 188 countries and regions. The US, Brazil, India, and Russia are currently the countries hardest hit in the world.
