Brazil's COVID-19 death toll tops 175,000

According to the Brazilian Ministry of Health, the country averaged 544 daily deaths in the past seven days, Xinhua reports.

Tests also detected 50,434 cases of infection in the past 24 hours, bringing Brazil's total caseload to 6,487,084 since February.

The country now has the world's second-highest COVID-19 death toll, after the United States, and the third-largest outbreak, after the United States and India.

Brazil's economy rebounded by 7.7 percent in the third quarter compared with the second, the state-run Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics said earlier.

The rebound, driven primarily by state aid to businesses and underprivileged Brazilians but at a price of mounting deficit, will not prevent Brazil's gross domestic product from ending 2020 with a 4.5-percent contraction, according to financial market projections.

According to the refund policy, the organizers only accepted those tickets purchased on the official website, and tickets bought outside Japan are not covered. It has been reported that over one million tickets have been sold to overseas spectators.

Tokyo 2020 has revealed that they are considering reselling the refunded tickets in the future.

The organizers will not decide the number of spectators, both from Japan and overseas, to be allowed into the venues until next spring. The most important factor will be how the COVID-19 pandemic is controlled in Japan and the rest of the world by then.

IOC President Thomas Bach said during his visit in Japan last month that «a reasonable number» of spectators will be permitted to watch the Olympic Games, which have been rescheduled from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
