On May 21, 106100 new cases were confirmed worldwide, the highest increase in a single day. As of 19:00 on May 22nd, there have been a total of 5.1 million confirmed cases worldwide! The cumulative death toll exceeded 332900.

The cumulative diagnosis of Brazil is about to become the global runner-up, and the health system of Sao Paulo state is on the verge of collapse.

18000 new cases were confirmed in Brazil on the 21st, with a total of 310000 confirmed cases and 20, 000 deaths as of 19:00 on May 22. Brazil is currently the third runner-up in the cumulative number of confirmed cases in the world, but the trend of new cases in a single day continues to climb, reaching the level of nearly 20,000 new people in a single day, second only to the United States. Brazil is expected to overtake Russia and become the global runner-up tomorrow.

Brazil's epidemic continues to ferment, and there is no doubt that its cumulative diagnosis of more than 300000 and sustained high growth is tantamount to an outbreak for a country with a population of only 210 million. Around the 15th, a large number of new crown virus was detected in the drainage system of Nitroy, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. Brazilian water quality experts warned that if this phenomenon continues to spread, the drainage system in Rio de Janeiro state and even throughout Brazil may become another important carrier for the spread of new crown pneumonia virus.

The epicenter of the outbreak in Brazil is in the state of Sao Paulo. The state of Sao Paulo, with a total population of about 46 million, is an important industrial, commercial and financial city in Brazil, accounting for more than 30 percent of Brazil's gross national product. As of 19:00 on May 22nd, 73739 cases of new crown pneumonia have been confirmed in the state, accounting for nearly 1/4 of the total number of patients in Brazil. However, as the number of confirmed cases continues to rise, the pressure on the city's health infrastructure, especially hospital beds, has become prominent, and the local official statement on the 20th said that if no measures are taken, the collapse of the public health system will certainly occur within three weeks.

At present, the main countries with severe global epidemic situation are: the United States, Russia, Brazil, Britain, India, Peru and so on. The United States has long maintained a high level of new growth in a single day, with a cumulative diagnosis of 1.57 million, far exceeding that of other countries. India and Brazil have repeatedly set new highs in a single day, and it is still doubtful whether the African continent can extricate itself from the shadow of the epidemic. At the same time, it will take time to develop a vaccine, and the global fight against epidemic will be a protracted war.
