WHO: Brazil's COVID-19 cases 'much higher' than reports

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said the number of coronavirus infections in Brazil could be much higher than is being reported as the lack of testing means many cases are likely going undetected.
Latin America’s largest country is currently the world’s second-worst affected with 51,000 deaths and more than a million infections of the novel coronavirus.
Many more infections and deaths are feared because social distancing measures are not being taken seriously.
Al Jazeera’s Priyanka Gupta reports.

    Brazil has tested only 20 lakh people, and got 10 lakh infected. India tested 70 lakh and got 4 lakh infected. Difference is sharply clear.

    • Klauss Bmann says:

      @JoãoLP so you agree he should be impeached? or do you admit that what happened to Dima was a coup?

    brazil is cursed not just with corona also with bolsonaro

  • MarkRobert Murphy Sr says:

    Yeah so is the recent Oklahoma trump talley..lmiaao

  • Ben Atticus M says:

    Another similarity between Brazil and India.. Both were instructed by the government to hide the real numbers to give face to their leaders.Don’t expect any truth and don’t trust any lies coming from the puppets of Muerika.Not coincident the top 5 worst countries are flip flopping intercourse with Trump.Dumb countries always fare the lowest.

    • thomas grabkowski says:

      china takes this to a whole new level

  • Ben Atticus M says:

    A dumb leader came from the hand of dumb citizens.Not sorry for you,Brazilians! You’ve asked for it! And you got it!

  • Praveen Kumar says:

    Everybody blame s president but nobody blames WHO , China 🇨🇳 ?……

    • merylwaldenlake says:

      Praveen Kumar Italy and France identified cases back in October/November last year. It’s not clear whether it even originated in China. Even if it did, even if they sealed off Wuhan in November, you cannot guarantee there had not been cases already traveling to the world. This virus has an unprecedented prolonged 14 day asymptomatic transmission period making it extremely difficult to control.

    • merylwaldenlake says:

      Praveen Kumar SARS originated in China but it didn’t impact the world very much which was not because the Chinese government did a better job (in fact, they reacted much slower than they did to COVID 19). It was because SARS was not asymptotically contagious. Seriously sick people were very unlikely to travel.

    • Praveen Kumar says:

      @merylwaldenlake well sars came from China 🇨🇳 ….but atleast we tried 2 stop at dat time ….. Thanks 2 s.korea but dis time it’s hard & sucks …. China virus 😷 spread world 🌎.

    • merylwaldenlake says:

      Praveen Kumar this one is most similar to 1918 Kansas flu that killed 50 million globally and mostly young people. Thankfully this one doesn’t kill as many young people

    • Praveen Kumar says:

      @merylwaldenlake haha 😂… U think wait for 2nd wave …… Winter is coming ….. Rip world 🌎😢😷

  • Frank Debrah says:

    It comes as no surprise that the three countries with the most incompetent leaders, USA,UK and Brazil are top three on the covid19 death league. How can citizens of these countries be so irresponsible to vote in these idiots.

    • JoãoLP says:

      Deaths per million much lower than Spain, Italy, France, Belgium and other rich countries…

    • Frank Debrah says:

      @JoãoLP what good is that to those loosing loved ones? The sooner that idiot started protecting his people with competent leadership the better.

    • JoãoLP says:

      Deaths in the countries I cited prove “leaders” can do nothing!

    • thomas grabkowski says:

      its because they were fed up with their left wing governments previously and elected them to be leaders

  • Sajid Khan says:


  • Iu Iulitza says:

    It’s the reverse of what happen in my country. We have less cases then reported. Because hospitals pays the families of dead patients , to let them register their dead family members , as Corona victims.

  • Erika RNcorazon says:

    Is sad because their government denied the virus in February…they went a head with the carnival and celebrated. This thing is real and thos virus is still deathly. America also had his share of neglect. Bad government results in dead.

  • boyout24 says:

    Too easy to pass judgement when we’re only hearing one side to the story.

    • John Henry says:

      Woah there buddy, let’s not be rational.

    • Cool Breeze says:

      What’s the other side? “No, these dead people didn’t really die!”

    • Mateus Uchoa says:

      Cool Breeze First of all, the other side is the one that looks into the right way to measure these numbers (infected per million people). Using this method you will see Brazil isn’t in top 20 worse countries. For instance, Uruguay has a population of almost 4 million people, it’s ridiculous taking their infected numbers and compare it with Brazilian numbers, since Brazil has a population of 210 million people. We need to take care of our population using all possible methods for sure because all lives matter but Brazilian case isn’t the worst as they say. It’s a clear political attack, but I wouldn’t expect nothing different coming from Al Jazeera.

  • S Hussein says:

    What do these countries with the worst death cases have?
    They are all fascist white govts
    1: US
    2: Brazil
    3: UK

    • Mateus Uchoa says:

      @Comrade Toxic Democracy is not always good but dictatorships are always bad.

      Mateus Uchoa what about ghaddafi , he made libya into heaven for its citizens but unfortunately US doesnt like middle east to grow

    • Mateus Uchoa says:

      @Comrade Toxic I never said USA was an exemple to be followed. But don’t come to me saying China is the good guy, it sounds ridiculous.

    • JoãoLP says:

      Comrade Toxic, I remember that time! Everybody in the world eager to migrate to Libia!! …. no… wait….

  • Carlos Santanna says:

    Meus amados, não percam a fé pois falta pouco para irmos para a nossa verdadeira casa e veremos Jesus como ele é. PREPAREM AS BAGAGENS: SANTIDADE, VIDA DE ORAÇÃO E FÉ e muito provavelmente vou conhecer alguns de vocês que estão lendo meu comentário lá na morada celestial. (O sentimento e a percepção que eu tenho, é que essa geração verá nossa ida para o Céu.) A volta de Jesus nunca foi tão real quanto agora, os sinais estão intensos em todos os seguimentos, estamos sendo testemunhas de acontecimentos nunca vistos antes. Muitos ouviram e ouvem a palavra mais infelizmente não quiseram e recusam o sacrifício do Senhor Jesus. Vamos renunciarmos a nós mesmos para sermos capazes de nos reunir com o Senhor, porque ele nos ama com grande amor e esse amor que ele tem por nós deve motivar-nos a deixar tudo para segui-lo. E mesmo que venhamos sofrer perseguições que sejamos como mártir, morrer por amor a Cristo. (Falo novamente, NÃO somos daqui) vamos nos arrepender, nos converter de nossos maus caminhos, abandonar as coisas impuras, pois Ele em breve vem. E se eu não lhe ver aqui, nos encontraremos lá.

    “Combati o bom combate, acabei a carreira, guardei a fé. Desde agora, a coroa da justiça me está guardada, a qual o Senhor, justo juiz, me dará naquele Dia; e não somente a mim, mas também a todos os que amarem a sua vinda.
    Pois todos nós iremos comparecer perante o tribunal de Cristo, para que cada um receba de acordo com as obras praticadas por meio do corpo, quer sejam boas quer sejam más. 2 Tm 4:7:8 – 2 Cor. 5:10

  • Alfa Romeo says:

    President of Brazil is an idiot this is why you don’t elect idiots.

  • Ting Li says:

    Election matters. That’s what you get when you elect someone that goes “Make America great again.” Now, make Brazil great again.

  • Knight Templar says:

    Let’s the Supporter of the Brazilian President build more coffins and dig grave for the death of their own kin cause by the Coronavirus.

    They dismissed the Coronavirus Pandemic as “Just a Normal Flu”.

  • Kailash Subba says:

    Its totally bolsonaro fault.This is the biggest drawback of democracy where some elite groups choose who runs the country.If any political leader is capable of leading a nation then s/he should no matter how long.

    • JoãoLP says:

      If Brazil had 57 million people in the “elite”, we would be the richest country in the world!

    • Adam Sahr says:

      Is there a problem in calling out Brazil? It is for the interest of that country… What’s wrong with you?

    • zingerman11259 says:

      @Adam Sahr no, if you read my comment you should know I never said that, if a country needs to be called out then we must call them out, thats why im wondering why they called out Brazil and not China

    • Adam Sahr says:

      @zingerman11259 Because no truth ever comes out of China… AJ is free to investigate and report from Brazil but not from China. Brazilians are free to complain, the Chinese are not !

    On other hand at least china is providing aid to countries

    • faisal bargi says:

      @mm but USA should admit that more than the Chinese the West is more responsible for the spread
      Take the example of India
      We don’t have any Chinese employees businessmen or students in our country still India is 4th on the list

    • thomas grabkowski says:

      @faisal bargi but rather a lot of indians emigrated to the west and they brought the virus home

    • faisal bargi says:

      @thomas grabkowski yes that’s true with evry country

    • Reed Stiles says:

      @faisal bargi If China hadn’t tried to hide the coronavirus and instead proactively contained it, we may not be in this mess.
      Yes, providing aid because they’re attempting to market themselves as “Coronavirus leaders” instead of “Coronavirus originators”.
      GTFO of here with CCP apologies.

    • faisal bargi says:

      @Reed Stiles ccp at least did not downnplay the risk of virus like Trump they built a huge hospital in 10 days
      What did trump do, he mocked it and told his people that he has best team to tackle corona, please explain what was that

  • Serena Poketeen says:

    Coronafake never killed people Hidrocloroquine did it. A lot of indigenous people stopped going for help to hospital cause they were murdered with Hidrocloroquine that trump gifted to bolsonaro. Coronafake didnt killed that people. Almost 350k deaths belongs to hidrocloroquine. Forbidden in whole world except USA and Brazil. Casuality?

    To be fair to the president, atleast he is being honest. The virus is not a threat to people with good health. Now it is completely one’s own responsibility towards one’s own health. If you want to blame someone else for your own lack of care towards your body, then I guess there isn’t much to say but keep fooling yourself.
