Global coronavirus cases reach over 8 million as outbreak expands in Latin America

June 15 (Reuters) - Global cases of the novel coronavirus reached over 8 million on Monday, as infections surge in Latin America, according to a Reuters tally.

About 25% of those cases, or 2 million infections, are in the United States, though the fastest-growing outbreak is in Latin America which now accounts for 21% of all cases.

Brazil’s COVID-19 cases and deaths have surged to make it the No.2 hot spot in the world, behind only the United States. (Writing by Lisa Shumaker Editing by Chris Reese)
