#BREAKING Brazil tops 10,000 deaths from COVID-19: official


There are now 10,627 deaths and 155,939 confirmed cases in the country, but scientists think the real toll could be 15 or even 20 times worse, given the country's inability to carry out widespread testing.

After Brazil surpassed the 10,000 dead mark, the National Congress decreed an official mourning period of three days and asked Brazilians to follow health authorities' recommendations to reduce infection rates while the country prepares for "a safe and definitive return back to normal".
