In the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, ICUs are so overloaded that the largest public hospital treating Covid-19 cases in state capital Porto Alegre said Sunday it was forced to close its doors to new patients.
“The hospital’s ICU Covid ward already serves at 132% occupancy,” hospital management at Porto Alegre Hospital das Clinicas said in a statement.
Throughout this pandemic, the vast majority of the victims that were becoming seriously ill or dying were elderly people.
But things are much different with P1. Vast numbers of healthy young adults are being hospitalized, and that fact has prompted the health secretary of Sao Paulo to refer to P1 as “a different pandemic from the one we saw last year”…
São Paulo’s health secretary, Jean Gorinchteyn, this week told reporters that in many of that state’s ICUs half of patients were now under 50. “I’m talking about 26 and 29 and 30-year-olds – often in a very grave condition,” he said, urging citizens to avoid crowds and remain at home. “We all need to understand that what is happening right now is a different pandemic from the one we saw last year,” Gorinchteyn claimed.
We need to be praying for Brazil, because right now they are seeing “cemeteries fill up like never before”…
As the emergency intensified this week, frontline health workers from Porto Alegre to Recife, a coastal city 3,000km further north, described scenes of heartbreak, despair and exhaustion as intensive care units and cemeteries fill up like never before.
“It feels like we’re putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound,” said Eduarda Santa Rosa Barata, a 31-year-old infectologist who works in three ICUs in the north-eastern capital of Pernambuco state, all now stretched to the limit. “We’re engaged in damage reduction … You open new beds and they fill up immediately.”
But won’t Brazil be okay once everyone gets vaccinated like the corporate media is suggesting?
First of all, there are all sorts of very serious problems with the vaccines. If you have not heard about them by now, I would strongly recommend doing some research.
Secondly, P1 appears to evade immunity conferred by previous COVID infection. Just check out the results of one new study…
A preprint of a new modelling study by researchers in Brazil and the UK suggests the variant first detected in the northern city of Manaus late last year, known as P.1, may be up to 2.2 times more transmissible.
The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed or published in a medical journal, suggests that even people who have already had the coronavirus could be vulnerable. The same study showed that the P.1 variant could evade immunity from previous Covid-19 infection by up to 61%.
In October, one study discovered that 76 percent of the entire population of Manaus, Brazil had already developed COVID antibodies.
But then P1 showed up in December and absolutely devastated Manaus.
So if natural COVID antibodies do not provide protection against P1, what makes you think that the vaccines will produce antibodies that will provide protection against P1?
Of course, P1 is not just limited to Brazil.
It has already spread to a whole bunch of other countries including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Italy and India.
Here in the U.S., it just keeps popping up in more locations. For example, three confirmed cases of P1 were just reported in Arizona…
Officials with the Arizona Department of Health Services say a COVID-19 variant strain that spreads at a faster rate has been detected in Arizona.
According to a statement released on March 12, AZDHS, along with the Yuma County Health Services District and TGen, reported that the P1 strain of COVID-19, also known as the Brazilian variant, was detected in three test samples from the state.
If P1 becomes the dominant strain in the United States, we are going to have a massive problem on our hands. Source
