Covid: With alarming surge, Brazil pips India to again become second worst-hit nation
NEW DELHI: The coronavirus cases are surging rapidly in Brazil. The South American nation reported a record 85,663 cases and 2,216 deaths on March 12. On Saturday, Brazil surpassed India to become the second-worst coronavirus-hit country in the world.
The dire situation has left the country's health infrastructure on the verge of collapse. The World Health Organisation said the state of the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil is very concerning and serious action needs to be taken.
As per the latest numbers, the country had 11,363,380 cases of infection and 275,105 deaths since the outbreak of the pandemic.
Experts have attributed the surge in cases to a new variant called P1, also known as the Brazil variant. It is believed to have emerged in Brazil, in or around the Amazon rainforest city of Manaus.
The new variant is far more infectious and was found to be infecting people who already contracted the virus and were cured.
Morons roaming in India without masks carefree. They never learn anything.
Mask and social distance should be a second nature to every one. If this becomes a norm then we all can live a normal life.
send all hot brazillians chicks to overseas ... before its too late
With new variants of Corona virus, the situation world over, can still go out of control. Even the vaccinated can become victims of the new variants.
Wear face masks and maintain social distancing...No need of staying at home...but follow all safety precautions....All the best to Brazil
Modi's strategy to show very less numbers so that ppl don't panic is going to boomerang for whole nation. People still think, based on numbers, that India is in good state as far as coronal spread is concerned and so they get relaxed. This will increase actual cases to very high numbers. Government should give factual numbers so people by are aware about actual situation, get alarmed and take more care.
In Freedom Loving nations like the US, Brazil and India the infection rates and death ratees due to Covid-19 are the highest. In co unist nations where government can impose strict regulations on movement and socializing, the death rates are lower. What this tells us is that freedom is costly and it is not easy to enjoy freedom. Discipline is lost when there is a lot of freedom. Lot to learn from .
Seems Indians are very lazy and not give important to others life., this is leading to second wave in country. Adding to it, incompetent govt in Maharashtra, causing great damaged whole country. I wonder how come Maharashtra become different from other states in India. There is huge and uncontrolled deaths. Even when cases were less was too high. almost 5 times more than any other second place.
Indian figures are manipulative...
What is this article trying to say? That there are others who are worse off than us? Why this comparison? Is this supposed to make us happy, or is it just for the sake of statistics?
India should look at Brazil and the US and learn necessary lessons.
Govt's should make it compulsory to wear mask otherwise the nations hv to face the consequences. We must panalise the people without masks at public places
wish someone pips india jn population as well. that is another number which we want to control
In reality the cases are rising very fast in india and the govt doesnt want to implement a lockdown to save its people...the govt will only implement lockdown if pm or president gets infected by covid 19.
A record no one would want !
God grace Brazilians
