December 28 According to a report by Peru’s Public News, on the 27th local time, the COVID-19 data released by the Ministry of Health of Peru showed that 1,339 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported, of which 919 were new in the past 24 hours, and the other 420 were adjusted and supplemented, with a cumulative number of confirmed cases.
The number reached 1007,657; the number of deaths in a single day was 60, with a total of 37,474 deaths. At present, 4,239 people are still hospitalized and treated in the country.
On the 27th, Peruvian Medical College reported that 256 doctors have died of COVID-19 since the outbreak of the epidemic in March. Because there are not enough intensive care units in Peru, some of them have failed to enter the ICU for treatment.
Peruvian medical school noted that during the pandemic, Peruvian medical staff faced many difficulties, many of whom contracted the novel coronavirus while caring for COVID-19 patients, and their lung function was seriously impaired and could not continue working in the regular inpatient ward.
A week ago, a report released by Peru’s Ministry of Health showed that the load capacity of intensive care units has reached its limit, and only 25% of intensive care beds nationwide can continue to be used.
On the other hand, the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of Peru released the investigation report on the detection of COVID-19 serum antibodies in Lima and Cayao on the 27th.
The report shows that 40% of the Lima and Kayao population have been infected with the novel coronavirus. Meanwhile, if a second wave of outbreaks, 60% of people are still at risk of infection, and the number of deaths may increase.
In addition, the survey results also show that the proportion of people with higher economic levels infected with the novel coronavirus is lower, with 13.1% of the “high” economy and only 25.8% of the people infected with the “medium and high levels” of the economy.
The hardest hit by the pandemic are those from the “low-middle-low” levels of the economy, with 52.8% of the coronavirus infection.
