San Francisco has announced two more "safe sleeping villages", where homeless people can set up tents while practising social distancing.
The first site opened near City Hall earlier this month amid public outrage over a rise in homelessness during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The sites come equipped with toilets and hand-washing stations, and meals will also be provided, officials say.
The city has so far confirmed 2,179 coronavirus cases
There has been a surge in the number of tents on pavements and street corners as homeless people struggle to find space.
The shelters that they normally turn to are running out of space, or are under quarantine.
The effect is most visible in the Tenderloin area, which has a history of homelessness. Residents say there are now more than 430 tents
in the neighbourhood.It's unclear how widespread the virus is in these areas as testing has been low
The country, which is the epicentre of the pandemic in Latin America, has the third highest number of infections worldwide, after
Russia and the US. Health experts say the true figure may be far higher due to a lack of testing in the country. They fear the outbreak
could overwhelm Brazilís health system in the coming weeks if cases continue to rise.Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has repeatedly
downplayed the threat of the coronavirus and criticised governors and mayors for adopting strict restrictions to curb its spread.
