Brazil on Tuesday registered the highest daily number of Covid deaths since the pandemic started.

The health ministry said 1,641 people had died with Covid in the previous 24 hours.

The record was reached as scientists said that a new variant first found in Brazil appears more contagious.

Brazil, where more than a quarter of a million people have died with Covid, has the second highest coronavirus death toll after the United States.
