Cases in Paraná have risen again and hospitals have become full

O infectologist Jaime Rocha has decided to make a video in the last 30 days, hoping to expand with WhatsApp groups in Curitiba to raise awareness among the population.

He started by not wanting to talk more about covid-19 or the importance of washing hands or wearing a mask. “I’m sure you already know all this,” he said.

The doctor wanted to warn that he was starting to miss beds for patients who fell ill due to a new coronavirus in the capital Paraná, where he works.

“We’re opening more beds, we’re opening more beds … But people’s behavior makes the number of cases so large that we’re not aware of it.”
