Travel restrictions seen as setback, as country becomes No 2 hot spot

BRASILIA, in Brazil-The United States suspended travel from Brazil over an explosion of coronavirus infections in the South American nation that has now become the world's No 2 virus hot spot with more than 360,000 infections.

Brazil's Health Ministry raised its tally of confirmed cases by 15,813 on Sunday to 363,211, with the death toll at 22,666.

The travel ban was a setback to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has followed the example of US President Donald Trump in addressing the pandemic, fighting calls for social distancing and touting unproven drugs.
