Brazil reports 566 deaths and over 16,000 new cases in 24 hours

Brasilia, August 31 (RHC)-- Brazil's health ministry has reported 566 additional coronavirus deaths over the past 24 hours and 16,158 new cases, bringing the country's death toll to 120,828 deaths, with 3,862,311 total infections.

The numbers of deaths and new cases as of the end of Sunday were significantly lower than those on the previous day, which could either be attributed to delays in reporting by state government, or an overall continuing downward trend.

The country has the second-highest number of deaths and infections. It leads in the highest number of recoveries at 3.2 million, according to Johns Hopkins University.
