Bermuda Olympic Hopeful Dara Alizadeh will be keeping his eye on the COVID-19 pandemic conditions in Brazil.
www.islandstats.com recently reported a story and interviewed Alizadeh following the World Rowing Executive Committee's announcement that the Americas Olympic and Paralympic Continental Rowing Qualifiers will take place from March 4th to 6th, 2021 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The Brazilian numbers are currently Coronavirus Cases: 8,390,341, Deaths: 208,133, Recovered: 7,339,703
Brazilians are expecting an announcement of new variants to become commonplace as enough time passes to allow mutations to emerge, spread, and take hold in the population.
For now, there's no evidence the virus is becoming more deadly.
But as long as it doesn’t become less deadly, more people catching it still means that left unchecked, more will potentially become ill or die.
