The epicenter of the South American coronavirus outbreak, Brazil saw 1,124 deaths in 24 hours, the Ministry of Health said.
It also had a record number of new cases — 26,928 in one day — bringing the total number of infections to 465,166.
The United States, Britain, Italy and France lead the world in coronavirus deaths.
Brazil is second in the number of confirmed cases, though trailing far behind the United States which has 1.7 million infections.
Brazil has seen 131.2 coronavirus deaths per one million people — compared to more than 300 in the United States and 580 in Spain — but the pandemic has yet to peak in the South American country.
