The Brazilian Ministry of Health announces the registration of 41 cases of coronavirus in the “Copa America”.
The Brazilian Ministry of Health reported that 41 cases of the Corona virus were recorded in the “Copa America”, which is hosted by Brazil, among players, members of the national teams and employees.
So far, the infected cases have been detected in the teams of Venezuela, Colombia, Bolivia and Peru.
The ministry did not reveal any details about the new cases, but it was announced that 12 members of the Venezuelan national team, including 8 players, were infected, as soon as they arrived in Brasilia.
The ministry statement also added that 2,927 examinations have been conducted so far, including more than one examination for the same people in some cases.
Brazil is one of the countries most affected by the outbreak of the Corona virus, and this led to the refusal of many Brazilians to host the tournament, after it was scheduled in Argentina and Colombia.
