Recently, due to the overloading of the medical system and the serious lack of oxygen equipment, the number of COVID-19 deaths in many parts of Amazon, Brazil, has risen sharply.
On January 15th, local time, the hospital’s inventory and beds ran out, and Brazilian people queued up to supply oxygen with oxygen cylinders.
Previously, Japan found a mutation of B1.1.28 in the blood sample gene analysis of four Brazilian tourists, and the number of COVID-19 infections in some parts of Brazil increased rapidly.
Researchers concluded that the new variety was more infectious.
As of January 16th local time, according to the data released by the Brazilian Ministry of Health, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Brazil has reached 845,059, with a total of 209,296 deaths, ranking second in the world after the United States.
At present, some oxygen equipment assistance has arrived in Amazon.
