It is under the influence of a new wave in the global epidemic in Brazil. The number of cases and deaths in the country is increasing day by day. The health system is on the verge of collapse.
The daily loss of life broke a record for the second day in a row. 1,910 people died in one day due to the virus. Approximately 72 thousand new cases were detected.
The total loss of life in the largest country in Latin America approached 260 thousand. Brazil is the country with the highest number of deaths in the world, after the USA.
The country is going through a difficult period in the epidemic due to new variants.
There is a sharp increase in cases. Due to the attitude of President Jair Bolsonaro, who compared the coronavirus to a mild flu, epidemic measures cannot be fully implemented in the country. However, some local officials took action against the increase in cases.
A “red alert” was issued in the state of Sao Paulo, where more than 46 million people live. A series of new measures have been taken to reduce hospital occupancy.
According to the decisions that will be valid as of Saturday, a curfew will be applied between 20.00-05.00.
Bars and restaurants were closed. Public gatherings are banned. There is also a person limit for public transport.
Experts state that the next two weeks will be the most critical stage in the outbreak for Brazil.
