Brazil is facing a tragedy caused by a new wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the World Health Organization.
“Unfortunately, Brazil is facing a disaster, it is a difficult situation. This is the fourth wave that Brazil has to face “, stressed Mike Ryan, the director of emergency of WHO.
Ryan also praised the Brazilian public health system for curbing the spread of the coronavirus, but said it was “necessary to curb nationwide transmission”.
“Brazil has extraordinary public health institutions. I believe the country knows what to do and many states are trying to implement the best measures. “But it is not easy, because there is not a part of the country that is not seriously affected by the pandemic,” said Ryan.
