Brazil becomes second country to pass 50,000 COVID-19 deaths

Brazil has become the second country, after the US, to register more than 50,000 deaths from Covid-19.

It comes amid growing political tension and just days after the country confirmed more than one million coronavirus infections.

Graphs of Brazil's deaths and infections show a continuing climb.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has also recorded the biggest one-day increase in cases globally, with most of the new infections in the Americas.

The decision of Brazil's far-right President Jair Bolsonaro to oppose lockdowns and focus on the economy has been hugely divisive.

Two health ministers - both doctors - have left their posts as deaths and infections have surged. The first was sacked by Bolsonaro, the second resigned after disagreeing with the president.
