Brazil’s coronavirus deaths pass 150,000 as infection rate slows

The number of deaths linked to COVID-19 in Brazil has passed 150,000, the second-highest toll in the world.
The fact that president Jair Bolsonaro has been downplaying the virus – even after having contracted it – has not helped efforts to curb the spread.
Scientists fear that Brazil is only in its first wave and a second wave is coming.

Al Jazeera’s Monica Yanakiew reports from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    (Matthew 24:3) "While [Jesus] was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately, saying: 'Tell us, … what will be the sign of your presence and the conclusion of the system of things?'"

    (Luke 21:10, 11) "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences;"

    (Matthew 24:14) "And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come."
