— 328,000 NOW DEAD IN BRAZIL 




04/03/2021    BRAZIL is facing the biggest health system collapse in its history, according to researchers at Brazilian health institute Fiocruz, as the country records its highest number of weekly deaths since the pandemic began. Meanwhile, Chile has been forced to impose strict new lockdowns to cope with a severe second wave of infections, despite having mounted one of the world’s fastest vaccine roll-outs.  They will probably start closing borders

Brazil recorded 18,164 deaths last week, bringing its total to more than 300,000, a higher toll than any other country except the US. Many of the country’s intensive care units have reached capacity. “The lack of medication, materials and intensive care beds are turning the situation into chaos,” says Renata Pieratti Bueno, a doctor who works across three hospitals in São Paulo. The shortages and a lack of trained personnel are causing unnecessary deaths, she says.

Brazil’s mortality rate for SARS-CoV-2 is already high: 8 out of 10 Brazilians intubated as a result of the virus have died compared with a global average of 5 out of 10, says Fernando Bozza at Fiocruz, which
is based in Rio de Janeiro.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazil currently accounts for one-quarter of the entire world’s daily COVID-19 deaths, far more than any other single nation, and health experts are warning that the nation is on the verge of even greater calamity. 

The nation’s seven-day average of 2,400 deaths stands to reach to 3,000 within weeks, six experts told the Associated Press. That’s nearly the worst level seen by the U.S., though Brazil has two-thirds its population. Spikes of daily deaths could soon hit 4,000; on Friday there were 3,650, and fulfilled by 4000.

So many live in the jungles and are not easily accessible, and one who is ill could take down an entire community or village and it may not be recorded. Some believe the deaths are higher than reported again Jair Bolsonaro is not a highly regard good broker.

Having glimpsed the abyss, there is growing recognition shutdowns are no longer avoidable -- not just among experts, but also many mayors and governors. Restrictions on activity they implemented last year were half-hearted and consistently sabotaged by President Jair Bolsonaro, who sought to stave off economic doom. 

He remains unconvinced of any need for clampdown, which leaves local leaders pursuing a patchwork of measures to prevent the death toll from spiraling further. 

It may be too late, with a more contagious variant rampaging across Brazil. For the first time, new daily cases topped 100,000 on March 25, with many more uncounted. Miguel Nicole’s  professor of Neurobiology at Duke University who advised several Brazilian governors and mayors on pandemic control, anticipates the total death toll reaching 500,000 by July and exceeding that of the US by year-end.

SIDEBAR:   We have determined that Jair Bolsonaro is a stupid, greedy, political jerk off, ignorant of science and compassion and way in over his head in reality, and  suffers from contracting the T-RUMP Trumpitus known as CRUD —  “ Cranial-Rectal Unlimited Dyslexia”  or in street Language which is “ Sh*t for Brains”.  
As previously discussed the only known cure for CRUD is a series of bullets placed dead square to the back of the head by a Colt 1911  — .45 caliber three times and immediate incineration.  It does kill the illness and the cause of it, but accomplishes survival of the human race.

03/19/2021   With every Covid-19 vaccination, the United States inches closer to defeating the pandemic that has killed over half a million Americans and left countless more with long-term complications.  But major challenges stand in the way. Some Americans are ditching personal responsibility and forgoing masks, even though the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant has spread to at least 46 states and Washington, DC. 

In addition new insights into COVID morphing into more dangerous strains and possibilities. 

In Brazil,  T-RUMPS best friend ( This week) President Jair Bolsonaro who does what T-RUMP tells him to do went and put three million doses Of Hydrochloroquionone into his “ treatment”.   Like T-RUMP, no masks, no rules,  no concern and the highest death rate in the world.  If T-RUMP is considered by intelligent people to be a completely  dangerous individual, this guy is number two. We the chosen ones refer to him as a schmuck with ear laps…

Jair Bolsonaro was elected President of the Republic in the October 2018 race with 57,797,847 votes (55.13% of the Brazilian electorate). His political career began in 1988, when he won a seat for municipal councillor for the city of Rio de Janeiro. And known to have a BAD reputation.  But as we say every day, dumb ignorant and stupid voters elect dangerous politicians.  And they fell for his lies… and many are dead, words do kill…

Brazil’s Covid Crisis Is a Warning to the Whole World  —  
Scientists say as Brazil is seeing a record number of deaths, and the spread of a more contagious COVID-19 variant that may cause reinfection.

Like T-RUMP who killed 560,000 Americans — Brazils dictator mentored by T-RUMP , Bolsonaro Brazil is in critical condition. Latin America’s largest country is experiencing record-breaking death tolls and its health system is teetering on the brink of collapse.    The failure to slow the outbreak coupled with an anemic vaccination campaign has not only created a domestic tragedy, but a full-blown global threat. Because it affect Brazilian exports to the world.

Who Is To Blame  —  Cutting Out The Political Crap And Lies It Is T-Rump — 
Much of the blame for Brazil’s disastrous health crisis lies squarely at the feet of the country’s far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro. Over the past year, he has downplayed the threat, peddled conspiracy theories, ridiculed health measures, denounced lockdowns, sabotaged vaccination efforts and even contracted the illness. Health authorities have implored federal and state government officials to impose stricter lockdown measures to avert a humanitarian catastrophe

In response, the president and his circle of advisers have urged supporters to resist mask-wearing and advocated the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, despite the evidence that they do not work, and could even be dangerous, when used to treat COVID-19.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Covid-19 has already left a trail of death and despair in Brazil, one of the worst in the world.  Now, a year into the pandemic, the country is setting another wrenching record.  No other nation that experienced such a major outbreak is still grappling with record-setting death tolls and a health care system on the brink of collapse. Many other hard-hit nations are, instead, taking tentative steps toward a semblance of normalcy.

But today also recorded the highest new cases of the bad strain and “The acceleration of the epidemic in various states is leading to the collapse of their public and private hospital systems, which may soon become the case in every region of Brazil,” the national association of health secretaries said in a statement. “Sadly, the anemic rollout of vaccines and the slow pace at which they’re becoming available still does not suggest that this scenario will be reversed in the short term.”

And the news just got worse for Brazil — and possibly the world. Preliminary studies suggest that the variant that swept through the city of Manaus is not only more contagious, but it also appears able to infect some people who have already recovered from other versions of the virus. And the variant has slipped Brazil’s borders, showing up in two dozen other countries and in small numbers in the United States.

Brazilians hoped they had seen the worst of the outbreak last year. Manaus, capital of the northern state of Amazons  was hit so hard in April and May that scientists wondered if the city might have reached herd immunity.

The Angel Of Death Donald T-Rump Had A Hand In This, And People Die  

  • Brazil whose Dictator follows Donald T-RUMP and his mentor is to blame and should have been assassinated a long time ago.  T-RUMP went too far for that matter, he has half a million deaths ( 545,000 of a population of 331 Million Citizens)   and  the blood on his hands.  They took the three million does of Hydrochloroquionone that The FDA stopped in the US because Donald said it worked. It did, it just killed more people… Instead of going with established protocols.   Brazil has 211 Million Citizens and 304,000 have died so far.

  • But then in September, cases in the state began rising again, perplexing health officials. An attempt by Amazonas governor Wilson Lima to impose a new quarantine ahead of the Christmas holiday was met with fierce resistance by business owners and prominent politicians close to President Jair Bolsonaro. Simple explanation, in Brazil politics checkmates death of citizens.

  • It did not have to be this way. Brazil oversees an impressive public health system and has amassed vast experience containing disease outbreaks. Yet Bolsonaro short-circuited the vaccination rollout from the beginning. His government’s initial plan was to manufacture 100 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, but this was delayed. 

  • He then tried to scuttle the distribution of CoronaVac, a Chinese vaccine vetted by local research institutes, and backed by Bolsonaro's rival, João Doria, the governor of São Paulo. Now his health minister is scrambling to buy 100 million doses from Pfizer and 38 million from Johnson & Johnson, but the earliest these will arrive is in May. As a result, just over 4 per 100 citizens have received a shot as compared with over 24 in the United States and 20 in Chile, according to Our World in Data, a website run by Oxford University.

  • Most Brazilians are determined to get vaccinated, though the proportion has slipped over the past year. A recent 2021 survey by Datafolha, a national polling group, found that 79% of the population want to be immunized and just 17% say they will refuse a dose. This compares to 89% of Brazilians who wanted to be immunized in August 2020. This suggests that Bolsonaro's campaign of disinformation has had an impact. Not surprisingly, in both polls, the presidents supporters were less likely to say they would be vaccinated than the rest of the population.

  • The vaccination rollout has stumbled since it started on Jan. 17. Some states are having difficulty reaching high-risk populations, such as the elderly and poor, while cities like Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and Salvador prematurely suspended campaigns because they are running out of vaccine doses. 

  • Progress pales in comparison to past efforts: The country vaccinated 100 million people against the H1N1 virus in just three months in 2010. At the current rate, all Brazilians wont be vaccinated until 2024. 

  • Governors and mayors are extremely worried that coronavirus cases are spinning out of control. Since the start of the crisis, Bolsonaro has obstructed local governments from implementing more stringent health measures. He has urged citizens to dismiss curfews, describing them as overblown and a risk to jobs. 

  • This week the country's premier health agency, the state-funded Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, announced that infections were skyrocketing and that intensive care units were at 80% capacity in 19 of Brazil's 26 states. Major cities such as the capital Brasília, Florianópolis, Fortaleza and Rio Branco have already reached 90-100% capacity. 

  • There is a sinister political logic to Bolsonaro's efforts to subvert the orders of governors and discount the recommendations of health advisers. By spreading misinformation and deepening polarization, he shores up his own base. With his popularity caving since the beginning of the year, sowing division is a way to rally his supporters. Bolsonaro seems prepared to take even more radical measures in the months ahead: At a cabinet meeting last April he publicly admitted that his efforts to dismantle gun laws would aid citizens in their  existence” against local government lockdowns.

    Brazil’s Bolsonaro Is Accused Of Crimes Against Humanity and ‘ Neglect

  • Criticism of the Bolsonaro administrations mismanagement of the pandemic, along with his dismantling of environmental protections in the Amazon, efforts to subvert firearms regulations and mismanagement of the economy, is gathering pace. Last year, a group of associations representing over 1 million Brazilian medical professionals filed a complaint to the International Criminal Court accusing the president of committing a crime against humanity by responding to the pandemic with “Contempt, neglect and denial.

  • More recently, Brazil's Bar Association denounced the government's lackluster response to COVID-19 to the Organization of American States. Advocacy organizations such as Human Rights Watch accuse Bolsonaro of sabotaging coronavirus prevention measures. And the World Health Organization has issued a series of alerts to Brazils federal government to take a more proactive stance, all of which have been ignored by the president, his health minister and closest advisers.

  • Calls for legal action are also growing. Brazil's attorney general recently requested that the Supreme Court launch an investigation into Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello's mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreaks in Manaus. Supreme Court Justice Ricardo Lewandowski and the Federal Police have initiated multiple inquiries into Pazuello. Thirty senators recently signed a petition to launch a congressional investigation into Bolsonaro's pandemic response. This latest effort is being held up by the recently installed president of the Senate, a Bolsonaro ally.

  • Brazil faces dark days ahead. Bolsonaro's missteps are also jeopardizing global efforts to fight the pandemic. The COVID-19 nightmare unfolding in Brazil is a searing indictment of pandemic populism. It is also a flashing light for other global leaders, including in the US to pressure Bolsonaro to get his house in order before it burns everyone else’s down.

  • Donald T-RUMP Is Not The Only Idiot In The World — But many Brazilians have little faith in a government led by a president who has sabotaged lockdowns, repeatedly downplayed the threat of the virus and promoted untested remedies long after scientists said they clearly did not work.  

  • SOUND FAMILIAR, that was Donalds MO  Donald called him,  a hero and 304,000 are dead and it rising almost too fast to stop. Based on the fact that two men of ignorance, neglect and personal interest such as greed and power can kill combined three-quarters of a million people and they are still breathing…   I’m puzzled, maybe just maybe we’ll start building Arks…
