Famous Beach Is Filled With Body Bags
Body bags were lined up on the famous beach of Copacabana in Brazil, Rio De Janeiro. Non-governmental organizations protested the increasing numbers of cases and deaths with empty bags.
The group, who signed the protest, left 400 body bags symbolizing more than 400 thousand people who died in the pandemic on the beach and showed a banner saying ‘Who is responsible?’.
Protesters also dug graves on the beach, buried one of the empty bags and held a symbolic funeral.
The escalating number of cases and deaths deepens the Covid crisis in the country with the slow progress of the vaccination program.
The state of Brazil’s trade center, Sao Paulo, stands out as “the region most affected by the epidemic of the country” with 2 million 903 thousand 709 cases and 96 thousand 191 deaths.
Following the USA, the number of people who recovered in Brazil was announced as 13 million 194 thousand 538.
In Brazil, official data show that in the city of Rio de Janeiro and another 10 cities with a population of more than half a million, people died more than those who were born.
In many regions, it is stated that the intensive care occupancy in hospitals is over 90 percent.
