Coronavirus cases surpass 50,000 in Colombia

Colombia’s Ministry of Health reported 2,193 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday, bringing the nationwide total to 50,939.

The Ministry of Health also reported 75 new virus deaths, bringing the country’s Covid-19 death toll to 1,667.

Coronavirus-related cases and deaths across Latin America are among the fastest rising anywhere in the world. And in the worst-hit countries, they show no signs of slowing down. 

The World Health Organzation does not believe either Central or South America have reached peak transmission, meaning the number of people getting sick and dying might continue to rise.
