In Portugal yesterday, the sad daily record for corona deaths was broken, the prime minister talks about “the worst phase of the pandemic” where the country is now continuing.
A correspondent in Portugal José da Silva Marcos confirms in “The morning” on Radio 1 that the country has to present poor corona figures. “The worst phase will certainly follow in the next two weeks. Even if you look at the hospitals, they can hardly handle it.”
In Portugal, a sad day record was broken yesterday with 167 corona deaths. The country has had the most corona deaths in one day since the start of the epidemic. “There is an average of 10,000 corona patients per day, which is sky high,” said correspondent José da Silva Marcos.
“The mortality has exceeded 100. Yesterday there was a record 167 corona deaths, and according to virologists, it will worsen in the next two weeks. There will be contamination of around 12,000 to 14,000 per day, and corona deaths also remain very high between 150 and 200. “
According to virologists, the worst phase of the corona pandemic is coming. “The worst phase will certainly follow in the coming days, two weeks,” agrees José da Silva. “Even if you look at the hospitals, they can hardly handle it anymore. People have already died in ambulances because no more hospital beds have become available.”
José da Silva says that intensive care units are almost full. “It will soon be complicated for people when they get sick in Portugal, not only with corona but also for people with other diseases.”
