And I thought that we would just see this type of dehumanization on a war zone.
India so far has reported 585.000 cases and 17.400 deaths. Arround 3 % of confirmed cases died.
Brazil has 1.456.969 confirmed case with 60.813 deaths. Arround 4 % of confirmed cases died.
India is way more populous than Brazil, with higher population density and a more susceptible to aglomerate way of being. And, going against all prospects, has less cases and lower mortality rate than Brazil. This covid 19 is very tricky.
Let's consider that just 0.5 % of covid patients die. Now I arbritarly multiply the number of deaths, 60.813, by 200. And now, by the use of basic arithmetics and a totally arbitray method, I know, or I at least can affirm, That Brazil might have arround 12.162.600 right now.
I wonder, not based on mathematical model
, what percentage of population needs to be contaminated for the wave to decelerate.
Of course, this is an oversimplification, since that here in Brazil the situation is very complex because of the size of our country and difference between regions. What is obvious is that the disease is being interiorized now, it was assolating big cities, now it is spreading through the small cities all around the country.
