The situation caused by the Covid pandemic in Brazil is dramatic, where corpses have begun to be exhumed to make way for new coronavirus victims. It happens in the state of Sao Paulo, where this week there was a record of deaths. But there are several Brazilian states ” in critical condition ”, as the World Health Organization (WHO) warns. In total, the number of people who have lost their lives from complications related to Covid-19 has increased to 325,284, making Brazil the second country in the world for the number of coronavirus deaths after the United States. In the last 24 hours alone, there have been 92 thousand new infections and more than 3,700 victims.
Hence the appeal of the President of the Senate of Brazil Rodrigo Pacheco to the United Nations to anticipate the arrival of the vaccines provided for by the Covax program. ” The situation we are facing is particularly dramatic. Data confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO) attest that Brazil has become the global epicenter of the pandemic with over 12 million confirmed cases and over 300,000 deaths and a worrying acceleration of the contagion curve “, he said.
