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.

Doctor Anthony Fauci, the U.S. top infectious disease expert, says the country’s recovery all depends on vaccinations.

To discuss:

  • Gustavo Ribeiro is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Brazilian Report.
