WHO “deeply concerned” about COVID-19 situation in Brazil

The state of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil is deeply concerning and serious action needs to be taken to deal with rising cases and deaths there, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

"Unless serious measures are taken the upward trend now flooding the health system and becoming beyond its capacity will result in more deaths," said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

He said all stakeholders should take the situation seriously, adding that neighbouring countries could be affected.

The WHO’s top emergencies official Mike Ryan said Brazil’s health system was "considerably pressurized" and that the country was not going in a good direction.

"So, 96 out of 100 ICU beds are occupied. There is very little resilience and capacity left in the system," said Ryan.
