Argentina passes 1 million cases as COVID-19 hits Latin America | Al Jazeera

Argentina has passed one million coronavirus cases and it is now smaller cities like Ushuaia – known as “The End of the World” at the edge of the country – that are seeing some of the most notable upticks.
Doctors have had to quadruple the number of beds for COVID-19 patients over the last month.

At least 60 percent of those tested recently are coming back positive for the virus.

“We were the example of the country,” said Carlos Guglielmi, director of the Ushuaia Regional Hospital. “Evidently, someone arrived with the coronavirus.”

Across Latin America, three other nations are expected to reach a million-case milestone in the coming weeks – Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

The grim mark comes as Latin America continues to register some of the world’s highest daily case counts.
