WHO Says US and Brazil Failed to Take Warnings About Virus Outbreak Seriously From the Start

The United States has the highest number of coronavirus cases globally, the only country reporting seven-digit numbers of infections. Brazil is also one of the 10 most infected nations according to the WHO. Its President Jair Bolsonaro has repeatedly dismissed the virus as just a “flu”.
