From Brazil to the United States, COVID-19 cases are on the decline.
In Brazil, vaccinations are now outpacing the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom. Nearly three-quarters of Brazilians have received at least one dose.
Brazil is second only to the United States, with the number of COVID-19 deaths, now more than 600,000. In the United States, the seven-day average of daily cases dropped below 85,000 with hospitalizations also down significantly.
