Ever since the month of March 2021, the only country in the spotlight in terms of COVID-19 cases is none other than India. The Indian Government is currently under a lot of firepowers due to the surge in the number of COVID-19 cases.
Since the month of March, the number of COVID-19 cases in India has only grown higher by the day. As of now, the number of COVID-19 cases in India is close to 400,000 per day. The country is currently facing a lot of issues in terms of oxygen and medical supply deficiencies.
While the majority of the world currently has its eyes set upon India, the Latin American region has also started growing higher in terms of COVID-19 cases.
As of now, the number of COVID-19 in Latin America is also on the rise and the situation is not getting any better. According to the reports, the number of cases is constantly increasing and the situation is becoming worse by the day.
Just recently, a report on COVID-19 cases was released by the Reuters tally on Friday, May, 21. The report shows that the number of COVID-19 cases in the Caribbean and Latin America has surged to all-time highs.
As a result of the above, even the number of casualties due to COVID-19 cases have started rising in the region. The Reuters tally report shows that the number of deaths due to COVID-19 cases in the region has surpassed 1 million figures. The report shows that the death rate in the region is higher than any other region in the entire world.
The report shows that the number of COVID-19 cases from the Brazilian metropolis of Sao Paulo to Bolivia has been constantly increasing. The entire region has been experiencing a huge surge in COVID-19 cases and the major reason behind that is the lack of a healthcare system.
The report shows that the healthcare system in the entire region is underfunded. The hospitals do not have many beds, medical staff, medical equipment, or medicine to manage the growing number of cases. Due to the lack of resources and funds, the number of COVID-19 cases is increasing all across the nation.
Even the people in the region are not able to afford expensive treatments for COVID-19 cases and people are finding it hard to survive. The people are constantly living hand to mouth and even the particular countries are not able to implement effective lockdowns.
The report shows that many have lost their lives to the COVID-19 cases in the hospital corridors that are filled with patients. Even many people have lost their lives at their homes in Brazil’s Amazon jungles due to lack of oxygen.
