There are more people under the age of 40 than there are in Brazilian intensive care units

Brazil is going from bad to worse. In March, the country’s intensive care units were filled with more patients under the age of 40.

When the experienced scientist Miguel Nicolises goes to bed at night, he cannot sleep. His head is full of numbers. Models and analyzes are on my mind.

He is a researcher in a country without control, a nation with a number of Covid-19 deaths that no one is close to now: Brazil.

– It’s a desperate situation. To be honest, I’m not sleeping properly, nor can I think clearly, Nicolysis told The Guardian. The article paints a very bleak picture of the country of over 200 million people. There, former president Dilma Rousseff says Brazil is “operating in a sea of ​​disease and hunger”.

Coming soon on top of all the lists

The first death from the Coronavirus was recorded in the country on March 17, 2020. One year and a week later, more than 300,000 people died. On Saturday, something very different from what is desirable was achieved about the numbers: more than 350,000 died.

Only the US has so many Covid-19-related deaths.

On Tuesday, the country’s health minister said 4,195 people had died in the past 24 hours. Also in these stats, only the United States did the highest number. But while the United States has gained some control, there is little to suggest that Brazil is above the worst. There are few vaccines available in the country, vaccination is slow, the health system is on its knees and a lot of them are sick.

We will surpass the United States in the number of deaths each. Today and perhaps also the total number, is Miguel Nicolelis’ dark prediction.

President Jair Bolsonaro’s approach to dealing with the pandemic is already well known. The BBC writes that the 66-year-old has mentioned mayors who have resorted to closures due to “tyrants”. He rarely wears a bandage and has said he does not want to be vaccinated. Bolsonaro joked that the Pfizer vaccine could “turn people into crocodiles,” and he was also quoted as saying that people should stop complaining about the situation.

Dilma Rousseff, the country’s first female president (2011-2016), uses words like “pervert” and “genocide” about her successor in an interview with The Guardian.

More than 40 years compared to the ICU

The G1 newspaper wrote on Wednesday that researchers have discovered 18 different mutations in the new highly contagious type of virus that is now infesting Brazilians. It is often referred to as P1.

It’s as if these variants are evolving, says virologist Renato Santana to G1.

It doesn’t just affect the country’s elderly. In March, there were more Covid-19 patients under the age of 40 compared to the intensive care units in the country’s hospitals.
This is what says Doctor Ederlon Resende, who is coordinating a research project under the auspices of the Brazilian Society of Emergency Medicine.

Many are calling for the country to be closed. President Bolsonaro repeatedly turned his thumb down, and did so again on a trip to the south of the country earlier this week.

When President Rousseff confronted the saying of “genocide,” he answered according to the Guardian: – I have been called homophobia, racism, fascism and torture … Now I am the one who committed genocide. Is there anything in Brazil that you are not to blame?
