... Is Only Getting Worse.

Brazil is now the world's fastest-growing coronavirus hotspot, accounting for 13% of all new cases globally in the past week.

Just days after it overtook Italy and Spain in total number of cases, the Latin American nation is poised to claim the No. 3 spot from the U.K. and is quickly catching up to Russia, which trails only the U.S., according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The emerging market is home to 210 million people and its public health system was already underfunded and under strain well before the pandemic raced around the globe.

It is late autumn in the southern hemisphere. Studies have indicated that the virus may spread easier during colder weather. The southern hemisphere could be in for a very long winter while the madman running Brazil does his best Trump impersonation and spreads misinformation.
