In August, authorities expect a decrease in the dynamics of diseases, in September – a decline. Today, the number of patients with coronavirus in Brazil is twice as many as in Italy. This is the calculation for the month since the discovery of the first case – February 26.
So, on March 26, the number of infected Brazilians was 2,915 people. In Italy, from the moment the first case of coronavirus was detected on January 30 and until March 1, the number of patients was 1,694, the G1 portal reports.
In most countries, the situation deteriorated sharply just a month after the first infection. In Italy, there are now 62 013 cases and over 8 thousand cases of deaths from coronavirus. In the first month, 29 people died there.
In Brazil, only in the first month after infection was detected, 77 people died.
Earlier, NEWS.ru reported that molecular biologists at the University of Milan found that the first cases of coronavirus infection occurred in Italy at the end of January, a few weeks before the discovery of COVID-19 in the first patient. They concluded that the virus could have entered Lombardy from both China and Germany.
