America has reported almost 1.5 million cases and 19,000 deaths from covid-19 in the last week, said the deputy director of the regional organization, Jarnas Barbosa, at a press conference.
Barbosa added that Brazil is experiencing a new increase in cases and deaths, while Uruguay is experiencing outbreaks of the disease in areas of its northern border.
Global cases of covid-19 rose to 55 million this Wednesday, after the World Health Organization (WHO) registered 450,000 new infections last day, according to data provided daily by the Geneva-based agency.
Deaths in the pandemic remain at 1.3 million, with 6,800 new deaths reported in the last 24 hours.
