Medicine / Health, Illness | Hospitals in America are under pressure from rising coronary heart disease

Hospitals in parts of both North and South America are under strong pressure as a result of increasing coronary heart disease, warns the Pan-American Health Organization Paho.

– Around our entire region, especially in North and South America, there are many hospitals that operate at full or almost full capacity, warns Paho CEO Clarissa Etienne.

Paho is the regional branch of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Etienne refers to full intensive care units, lack of oxygen tanks in some areas and a “sustained recovery” in cases.

In the last week, more than 2.5 million cases of infection were registered in the region – more than half of all global cases. During the same period, 42,000 people from the region lost their lives as a result of the pandemic, she says.

The United States, Brazil and Mexico are among the hardest hit countries in the region. The United States passed 400,000 corona deaths on Tuesday, the same day that Mexico set a new high in the number of deaths on the same day, with 1,584.
