5. Brazil is 58th highest in cases per capita (meaning there are 57 worse "hot spots")

Click on the "Tot Cases/1M pop" header to sort it.

Granted some of the countries that are worse off on cases per capita are postage-stamp sized countries or, in some cases, not even independent countries, but territories or similar (I checked a few out).

Brazil's population is 6th in the world, so I would expect a lot of cases.

As for tests per 1M pop, it's kind of in the middle, at 3,462. Similar to some Latin American countries, more than others (Mexico's is 1,271). But far below that of Italy: 49,691, Spain: 64,977, and U.S.: 35,773.

Also a dupe of https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142495347
