Brasilia : Authorities here reported 1,111 single-day deaths in the last 24 hours putting the total fatalities to 192,681.

Brazil continues to reel under Covid 19, marking on Tuesday the highest fatalities since October 3 when 1,307 had died.

The nationwide caseload shot to 7,563,551, after testing 58,718 more new cases, the highest since December 17, in the last 24 hours.

The South American country currently has the third-largest caseload in the world, after the US and India, and the second-highest death toll just behind the US.

The southeast Sao Paulo State, the most populated in the country, is the hardest hit region with 1,440,229 cases and 46,195 deaths, followed by the neighbouring Rio de Janeiro with 426,259 cases and 25,078 deaths.

Amid surging cases in Manaus, capital of northern Amazonas state and one of the epicentres of the pandemic, at least two local hospitals have set up tents outside their facilities to test new patients arriving with symptoms of Covid-19.
