Covid-19: Death toll in Brazil surpasses UK

Officials in Brazil reported 909 deaths on Friday and is the hardest-hit Latin American nation with more than 828,000 confirmed virus cases. The news came as states and cities across Brazil start to ease restrictive measures introduced more than two months ago in hopes of limiting the spread of the coronavirus. Earlier, the city said it was delaying the planned reopening of school for a number of pupils due to take place on Monday because of the new cases.
