In the Sao Paulo metro area, with its 21 million people, the ICU beds are 90 percent occupied and hospital beds in general are 76 percent taken, he said.

PERU: A total of 92,273 confirmed coronavirus cases have been detected in Peru so far, and 2,648 people have died, the Health Ministry said, adding that in the last 24 hours 3,732 new cases had been detected and 125 people had died.
