Data map: On March 26, local time, some technicians in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, used 3D technology to make protective masks in batches to help medical staff fight the epidemic.
The latest report released by the Brazilian Ministry of Health on the 2nd shows that Brazil has confirmed a total of 7910 cases of new coronary pneumonia and a total of 299 deaths. Health Minister Mandeta called for people who are not sick to go out and wear masks to protect themselves.
The Ministry of Health noted that many studies have shown that wearing masks, washing hands, and avoiding people can help reduce the risk of infection. In addition, many patients infected with the new crown virus are asymptomatic, and wearing a mask can prevent their droplets from infecting others.
Mandetta also said that officials expect the number of new crown cases to peak in April. He called on Brazilians to "double their efforts" in areas such as "social alienation", "this is not the time to shake."
Cardiologist Jaqueline Scholz emphasized that the main measure to curb the spread of the virus is still to maintain social distance; the Ministry of Health recommends that everyone wear a mask to reduce the amount of virus in the environment.
In addition, public universities in Brazil's states have mobilized their resources to develop fast-screening testing technology to assist the public medical system in the screening of new crown virus.
