When the governor quarantined the whole district (we're like DC here), we were caught off-guard: Brasilia was third in number of cases after São Paulo and Rio, but the numbers were still very low. It seemed way too early, but we heeded the calls.
One month later, we see the results: the number of cases and deaths in other units of the federation soared, and we dropped from third to fifth in number of cases overall, probably sixth tomorrow. It's quite stable around here, in spite of Bolsonaro fans who flout the lockdown as some kind of badge of honour. Still, even if we compensate for subnotifications, our curve seems to be less steep than in the United States, so we're optimistic.
I'm trying to keep my cool but, Christ, they make my blood boil because we have to bump on these people when we go grocery shopping

I worked in ICU last night with a covid patient, and it really hit me - there is NO treatment for this.
I remember what worried me the most about dengue last year was that all we could do was wait and keep me hydrated. The medicine helped fight the symptoms, not the disease itself

I read 50-80% of the people who survive the ventilator will suffer from Post-Intensive Care Syndroom (Pics).
I had never read about it, I hope he pulls through and makes a speedy recovery.
