When the novel coronavirus epidemic began in Brazil, in response to the impact of the epidemic, the Chikuru indigenous people built temporary hospitals and hired medical staff in their places of residence to facilitate tribal residents to see a doctor nearby when they had symptoms.
At the same time, the local government attaches great importance to the popularization and publicity of epidemic prevention knowledge, and has purchased sufficient epidemic prevention supplies.
So far, although about 200 people have been infected with the novel coronavirus, the village still maintains a record of zero deaths from COVID-19.
