Hundreds Of Thousands More Could Die From Covid-19 In Latin America, Agency Warns

More than 121,000 people have died of the coronavirus in Latin America and the Caribbean so far.
By October 1, that number could increase by more than 300,000.
That was the headline at this week's press briefing by the Pan American Health Organization, citing modeling by the University of Washington that predicts more than 438,000 total deaths across the region through the end of September. That means, on average, nearly 3,500 people could die of the virus every day between now and then.
