Brazil Healthcare System is Being Overrun By Coronavirus PandemicApril 13, 2021
In the world today, no one wants to win the race on being the first when it comes to COVID-19. It is a dangerous disease that has killed more than one million people in the world, and the numbers continue to increase. What is making the situation even worse is the fact that there seems to be an acceptance that some countries will be able to fight the virus in a better manner than they have already been able to deal with this virus.
The United States is a classic example of a country that had everything at its disposal, but it happens to be one of the most affected countries in the world, with deaths of more than three thousand people per day during the peaks. This is something that most of the people in the country never expected, but it was bound to happen with the administration present at that time doing nothing rather than to wish the virus away without using any strategic plan that would have helped in dealing with this problem.
Brazil is Winning the Race
Unfortunately, Brazil happens to be winning the race with regard to the spread of the virus within the community, and this is something that would have obviously happened with millions of people in the country today already infected with the virus. The numbers currently being recorded in the South American country are scary, and it is obvious that everything has already gone out of control at a time when most people would have felt that nothing wrong was going to happen.
Overrun Medical Facilities
In normal situations, most of the medical facilities in the country are considered to be in better condition as compared to those in other South American countries. People have been getting the necessary healthcare attention without major issues because of equipped and staffed medical facilities. Most of the rural medical facilities have been handling the population in the rural areas and ensuring that health is maintained without some major alarms.
However, everything has gone out of control in the last few months, and the current data show that Brazil is recording more deaths than the United States. Most of the medical facilities in rural areas cannot handle all the patients they are getting every day. The situation has been made complex by the fact that good hospitals in the city are not accepting more patients because they do not have any room.
