The United States they exceed 100 thousand deaths for coronavirus, while theLatin America becomes the new center of the pandemic. And to worry are the numbers of Brazil, the second country in the world by number of infections after the USA, where in the past 24 hours the victims of COVID-19 were 1,086, for a total of 25,598. Contagions, however, exceeded 411 thousand.
USA – Exceeding the 100 thousand death threshold emerged from the calculations of New York Times, which dedicates the opening of the site to all the victims in a piece entitled “The incalculable loss“. This is the highest absolute number of deaths in one country from the virus and the number of victims exceeds that of the American military who died in all the conflicts fought by United States from the war of Korea on. The pandemic of coronavirus is preparing to become the deadliest in history USA after that of the Spanish in 1918 in which 675 thousand Americans lost their lives.

Latin America – The images of these days of hundreds of coffins stacked waiting for some burial of luck in the cemeteries of St. Paul, in Brazil, or of Guayaquil, in ecuador, have been premonitory. In fact, the pandemic peak has long been hypothesized coronavirus has officially invested according to thePan-American Health Organization (Ops) Latin America, where the most recent statistics indicate that those infected by the COVID-19 they are now more than 800 thousand, and the dead over 43,300.
If on the whole the health emergency concerns the two Americas, the WHO director, Carissa Hetienne, clarified that “the concern is great for Latin America”, because “it has now exceeded in the daily calculation of the infections from Covid-19 theEurope and the same United States“. In addition to the dynamic transmission of the virus in Mexico, fourth Latin American country for infections (74,560) and second for deaths (8,134), Hetienne stressed that “in America southern we are particularly concerned about the cases confirmed last week in Brazil, which were the highest in the world, based on a period of seven days, since the epidemic occurred “. And the Dominican manager didn’t stop there, adding that “it is Chile, be Peru are experiencing a high incidence of cases of coronavirus, a sign that the infection it is also accelerating in these two countries “.
To worry theWHO and i governments of the subcontinent is the fact that health facilities existing were not designed for pandemics like the current for which, even before the arrival of the peak, many hospitals is medical centers have reached the point of collapse, above all for resuscitation is breathing assisted.
For this reason, thinking of countries with policies to combat the pandemic that are not entirely orthodox (for example Brazil is Nicaragua), Hetienne stressed that “for many Nations of the Americas this is not the time to flexibilize the restrictions or to resize preventive strategies “.
Of course, that after over 70 days of quarantine is social isolation that have blocked populations at home and paralyzed the formal and informal economy, the malaise is winding up more and more clearly, as evidenced by the incidents between demonstrators and law enforcement officers, which occurred in the last hours in Chile and ecuador.
