Argentina has the world’s highest rate of positive COVID-19 tests

Argentina has the world’s highest rate of positive COVID-19 tests, according to Oxford-linked tracker Our World In Data, reported Reuters. The country has nearly six out of 10 yielding an infection, a reflection of low testing levels and loose enforcement of lockdown rules.

Argentina recorded 20,000 deaths last week. It has the eighth highest number of cases in the world and is currently in the top five on average for new cases and deaths in 7 days.
