COVID-19: Brazil sees record-high ICU occupancy

Occupancy levels at Brazil's intensive care units (ICU) have surpassed 90 per cent in 21 of the country's 26 regional capitals, the highest rates since the country's first COVID-19 case was announced.

Regional daily "Folha de Sao Paulo" said on Wednesday that ICUs in four state capitals, namely Belo Horizonte, Campo Grande, Rio Branco and Porto Velho, have reached full capacity.

Only two capitals had ICU occupancy rates below 80 percent, which were Manaus (77 percent) and Boa Vista (48 percent).

The newspaper added that the ICU occupancy rate in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul was 106 percent, meng that patients were waiting for beds.

The South American country has the world's second-largest COVID-19 outbreak after the United States, with 340,776 deaths and 13,193,205 infections. (/Xinhua)
