RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazil registered 301 COVID-19 deaths on Wednesday and 5,446 additional cases, according to data released by the nation’s Health Ministry, though the statistics were incomplete as four of the nation’s 27 federative units failed to provide complete numbers following a Friday hacking incident.

The South American country has now registered a total of 617,271 coronavirus deaths and 22,201,221 total confirmed cases.
