SAO PAULO, BRAZIL - MAY 22: A mural created by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, which is dedicated to all victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, stands above a sidewalk on May 22, 2021 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. COVID-19 has now killed more than 1 million people in Latin America and the Caribbean, with nearly half of those killed in Brazil. Only three percent of the population of Latin America have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Health experts are warning that Brazil should brace for a new surge of COVID-19 amid a slow vaccine rollout and relaxed restrictions. The state of Sao Paulo has registered over 3 million cases of COVID-19 and more than 100,000 deaths. Over 445,000 people have been killed in Brazil by COVID-19, second only to the U.S. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
