The dramatic stories of Covid-19 in Brazil have no brake, sadly. A family from Curitiba was devastated by the coronavirus in just three weeks. A 13-year-old boy, his 39-year-old mother and his grandmother died from the virus.
Eliandra Budske Busato, the child’s mother was the first to be infected. The woman, an administrative assistant, presented symptoms and had to be hospitalized urgently. Busato did not resist and died on February 25.
Twelve days later, the family was upset again. Eldora, Eliandra’s mother, also contracted Covid-19 and died. With family members still shocked by the two losses, everyone focused on asking for prayers for little Leonardo, also infected.
The teenager was hospitalized earlier this month and had a worsening in recent days. The child was intubated at the Onix Hospital, in Curitiba, but died this Wednesday, March 17.

The hospitals of Curitiba, in Paraná, are overwhelmed by cases of coronavirus and in recent days they had to relocate medical personnel from other specialties to deal with the overload. The Hospital de Clínicas (HC) of Curitiba reached 98% occupancy of beds of patients with coronavirus.
The HC has been training teams from other pavilions to work on the treatment of Covid-19, including in ICU beds. The hospital management follows the trend of the health system in general, which is forced to reinforce Covid-19 care with professionals from other areas.

We are trying to open more spaces for the treatment of the coronavirus, but our difficulty at this time is human resources,” explained the secretary Municipal Health, Marcia Huçulak.

Salvador and Cuiabá, capitals of the states of Bahia and Mato Grosso, respectively, stopped the application of the antidotes the day before, and Belém, the capital of Pará, suspended it since Sunday. The forecast is that between Thursday and Friday the same will happen in Curitiba, the capital of Paraná, and in Porto Alegre, the capital of Rio Grande do Sul.
The shortage of vaccines also affects several municipalities in the country, which raised the fury of the National Confederation of Municipalities, which criticized the government’s lack of foresight and called for the head of the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello.
