Brazil registered a record 6,276 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday. It already has the largest number of infections in all of Latin America with 79,685 total confirmed cases and more than 5,500 deaths.

President Jair Bolsonaro has downplayed the threat posed by the virus. Asked by reporters for comment after the death toll passed the 5,000 marks on Tuesday, he said: “So what? I’m sorry. What do you want me to do?”

One of the worst affected cities has been Manaus in the Amazon. The city’s mayor has said that they are preparing to hold more than 4,000 funerals in May – four times the usual number.
