Brazil exceeds 150,000 deaths, India is the threshold for 7 million cases

Brazil exceeded the threshold of 150,000 deaths due to coronavirus on Saturday, when the pandemic seems to be slowing down in the country. India also crossed the threshold of 7 million cases of Covid-19 infection on Sunday, a figure close to that reached by the United States, the country most affected by the pandemic.

Brazil exceeded the threshold of 150,000 deaths from Covid-19 on Saturday, October 10, and India recorded more than 7 million cases of coronavirus infection on Sunday, October 11. These two countries remain after the United States, which has registered 214,305 deaths linked to the virus and has 7.7 million cases of contamination.

With 559 new deaths recorded in the last 24 hours, Brazil officially regrets 150,198 deaths, according to the latest report released by the Ministry of Health on Saturday night. The country with 212 million inhabitants also has 5,082,637 cases, making it the second most neglected country in the world after the United States.

The first case was recorded on February 26 in Brazil and the first death on March 16. The curves then increased exponentially, before stabilizing in June, with an infinite plateau at more than 1,000 daily deaths on average.

The decline began in August, with an average of 932 deaths recorded per day and continued until September (752). The escalation of the pandemic was confirmed last week with an average of 610 deaths per day.

The daily average of new cases over a week also drops to 27,477 against more than 40,000 at the beginning of September.

An underestimated degree of infection in India?

India has crossed the threshold of 7 million people infected with Covid-19. Figures from the Ministry of Health show an increase of almost 75,000 new cases on Sunday, leading to the total number of infected people in India amounting to 7.05 million and placing the country in second place after the United States.

Experts say the figure could actually be much higher, with the large country’s screening rate of 1.3 billion people – which has some of the most populous cities on the planet – much lower than in many, many other countries.

This hypothesis is confirmed by a series of studies on the presence of antibodies that prove a previous infection with Covid-19. The latter revealed that the rate of infection among the Indian population may be higher than those officially registered.

The death toll in India was 108,334 on Sunday, a figure lower than the United States and Brazil, which officially have two million fewer cases of pollution than India.

Among the factors that may explain these figures are: the relative youth of the Indian population, possible immunity to other diseases and fewer reports.

This increase in pollution comes in India as the government continues to lift restrictive measures to stimulate the economy hard hit by strict containment introduced in March.

Guards get jail terms for Mogadishu prison break

Six prison guards have been sentenced to between six months and five years for their role in the August 12 jailbreak in Mogadishu Central Jail that left at least six people dead. The military court which delivered its verdict today also stripped two of the guards of their jobs. Three guards- Abdullahi Moalim Hussein, Mohamed Dahir Mohamed, and Abdi Jire Yusuf were slapped with five-year jail terms and struck off the list of employees of the prison. Another prison, Abdi Ahmed Mohamud was acquitted for lack of evidence. The court also sentenced to death one of the convicts who escaped during the attack and went ahead to kill two people. The court found Mubarak Ibrahim guilty of escaping from prison and killing Mohamed Yusuf Tohow a soldier and a civilian identified as Mukhtar Abdullahi Muse. He was sentenced in absentia. On a material day, fire broke out at central jail followed by indiscriminate shooting that left at least six people among them guards and inmates dead. Questions arose about how some of the weapons including hand grenades found a way into the facility. But the court unveiled that mystery today when it sentenced Mohamed Nur Isak to five years for smuggling weapons into the correctional facility. The court held that Isak, who authorities in Mogadishu have accused of robbing unsuspecting members of the public funds through shady ‘forex business’ sneaked in weapons into the facility. Isak, the court judge Col. Ali Shute ruled, had used his permit to supply food and non-food items to the prison to smuggle in weapons to the hardcore convicts in collusion with some of the guards.
