A sad record
The pandemic of coronavirus continues to plague the Brazil. For the first time, the bar of 4,000 deaths in 24 hours has been exceeded. According to the latest official report from the Ministry of Health, 4,195 patients succumbed to the disease in a single day.
Chain France Info note that the Covid-19 seems totally out of control at Brazil, since, for many weeks, sad records have been broken day after day.
Indeed, the country has recorded more than 15,000 deaths in just 6 days, with an average of 2,757 daily deaths.
Second most contaminated country
Behind the United States, the Brazil is the second most bereaved country in the world with a total of 336,947 dead.
This country of 212 million inhabitants is also in second place in terms of contamination, with more than 13,100,580 confirmed cases, including 86,979 in the last 24 hours.
Out of control situation
Faced with this resurgence of coronavirus, hospitals are overcrowded in most areas. AT Sao Paulo, buses were used to transport the bodies. Cemeteries are also overwhelmed, and to cope with the influx of new corpses, funerals have been held overnight.
No action taken at national level
Despite this catastrophic situation, far-right President Jair Bolsonaro continues to question the restrictive measures taken by mayors and state governors. The latter have imposed health rules, often insufficient and sometimes contradictory, for each city and each State in the absence of real coordination at the national level. However, specialists have indicated that they fear an even worse massacre than that of March.
