US: The confirmed coronavirus caseload in the United States on Sunday reached 1,779,853, and the death toll stood at 104,081, according to the latest unofficial and independent count by The Johns Hopkins University.

US: The state of Florida on Sunday reported that 56,163 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the Sunshine State, an increase of 739 over Saturday, while the death toll stands at 2,451, with four additional fatalities in the last 24 hours.

BRAZIL: The Brazilian Health Ministry on Sunday reported that 514,849 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the South American giant, while 29,314 people have died, 480 of them in the past 24 hours.

BRAZIL: Brazil announced Sunday that it received two million doses of hydroxychloroquine to treat local cases of Covid-19, despite the fact that the World Health Organization does not recommend the use of the anti-malaria drug for people infected with the coronavirus. Brazilian authorities also announced that the US had contributed the doses of the medication and announced a cooperation program with Washington to fight the pandemic.

PERU: Peruvian health authorities announced the confirmation of 8,805 newly detected coronavirus cases, bringing the caseload to 164,476, adding that the country is only bringing to bear "50 percent" of the effort it must marshal to fight the pandemic.
