At present, 1322 virus samples of unspecified causes of deaths are still waiting to be tested. The number of novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in Brazil has been rising steadily.

Brazilian officials infected with the new coronavirus
Following yesterday’s announcement that Renan, the governor of the northeastern state of aragos, was positive for his new coronavirus, Brazil’s Senator Ricardo Barros, the former health minister, was confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus on the night of the 25th, and is now in hospital in Parana. Simone Papaiz, director of the State Health Bureau, said she was in good condition and was in the process of home quarantine. Amazon is one of the States most affected by the new crown epidemic. The state’s intensive care unit is nearly full, so many people cannot be admitted to hospital for treatment. Some experts say the state’s current situation has “lost control”. At present, there are 3833 confirmed cases and 304 dead cases in Amazon.
Facing the double pressure of epidemic situation and economic downturn
Brazil has a population of 210 million, and local health experts point out that once the outbreak is out of control, it is likely to have a major outbreak similar to that in Europe and the United States. At present, the number of ventilators in Brazil is far from enough. Brazil’s federal government will distribute 272 ventilators to state hospitals by the end of this month, the number is only 2% of the previously promised 14100, and the health care system is already in high load operation, Brazilian health minister Thaci said Friday. According to local media reports, the intensive care beds in the northeastern state of saiara have been full, and 96% of the beds in Amazon state have been occupied, which is 84% in Pala state, 95% in Bernanke state, 74% in Rio de Janeiro state and 54.57% in NANDA river state. Sao Paulo, the most economically developed state, is 55.3%.
Brazil’s Ministry of health promised on March 12 that it would add 2000 new beds for intensive care across the country, but as of April 24, only 350 were added. In addition, it has been more than a month since the implementation of home isolation measures in Brazil. The government and the public are facing great economic pressure. Some states and cities have begun to gradually relax the isolation measures to restore business activities, and the home isolation rate has been reduced. Recently, the exchange rate of the Brazilian currency real has continued to decline, reaching a new low of 5.59 real to the US dollar. Brazil is under double pressure from the epidemic and economic downturn.
