80% of community has Covid-19, including the nurse in charge

80% of community has Covid-19, including the nurse in charge 1

 

Reporting from journalist Guillermo Galdos
Deep in the heart of Peru's central Amazon, the indigenous Shipibo people have for thousands of years lived off the land, thrived as healers, and defended their territory against loggers and other foreign invaders that threatened their very existence.
But they have a powerful new foe that shows little mercy: Covid-19.
In the remote Shipibo village of Caimito, 80 percent of the community has shown symptoms of coronavirus, according to local nurse Elias Magin. The nearest hospital is an eight-hour boat ride away.
When we arrived in late May, a line of people snaked around a simple building with a makeshift sign declaring it the Puesto de Salud, or health clinic, for Caimito. It was only 10am and those who could walk were patiently waiting to get medical attention.
"In the past three days, we have run out of the medicine the government gave us," Magin told us. "The only medicine we have left is for other conditions. I don't even have any paracetamol."

      WHO ever caused this needs to be charged. I dont think this was Don’s doing bc this is the last thing he would want. Strange how Tony precisely predicted this years ago…. #KnowGates/NoGates #FollowTheMoney

    • For those Trump followers who say, “What about the rioters?” when asked about the health of rallygoers:

      – That’s not a reasonable answer.

      – PROTESTING, (not rioting), AND attending a Trump rally are BOTH UNSAFE.

      – Most protesters wear masks. Most Trump rallygoers do not. A disease is not a political issue!

      – One is a call to end police brutality. The other is listening to an old man incoherently ramble and tell the same, old lies about how most of the country consists of communist, open-border loving, stealth-racist rioters who want to confiscate your guns. You can watch him lie on TV.

      A Collection———you are correct. Poor leadership. Poor leader ship at our decision making levels of all school educational systems, Government, medical systems, ETC. Trump is one single president (doing a very good job I must say )and many believe he is the cause. One single person LOL wake up people that’s a laughable. It is us. WHO? It is us! WHO? Us and our complacency and laziness that got us here. Our constitution is written in that we the people need to steer our policy makers congressman politicians etc. etc. It was up to us. We were in the backseat it was up to us. We were in the backseat. We need to climb to the front seat grab control. We need to remove the unethical and uncouth representatives who are not truly there for we the people. All of us. This is America the very best country in the world. Wake up wake Go trump 2020 obviously

    me feeling bad about this is nothing compared to how the disease is weakening them. I still look rough even though i have healed , this disease owned me entire body. i am fortunate and i want these people to survive this also.

      500ish active cases most in one state Victoria, 102 deaths nation wide at this stage, my state has 3 active cases in Queensland, stay strong ✌️

    • Canada barely has a problem with this, but Northern US and Alaska do. The Canadians locked down early and restricted travel between provinces. They have more than two political parties, making it harder to politicize.

      @Richard Ralph Roehl they managed to rid them of tapeworm and cannibalism but they haven’t been able to stop them raping their own children yet!

  10. the doctor abandoned these people…and the charge nurse kept on going…well done NURSE!

  11. When he gives up all his claim to his future’s who to blame, he’ll realize that so far he is at core of it all and it results in all the same.

      So why didn’t CNN say anything about the rioters, looters, and protesters who half never wore a mask and there was no social distancing at all? why? they said its all good? And now you’re bitching about the spread????? Idiots.

    • Rigo the kid | June 23, 2020 at 8:32 PM | Reply

      @Fighter Pilot dude look at his name he has nothing but his trolling he is nothing an empty shell of a person a loser a rat a weasel he is one of those cowards who would insult you on the internet but then call the cops in person coward

    • @Fighter Pilot Don’t you know COVID 19 is Pro BLM, Pro Democrats, PRO CNN, It’s only targets racist republican. This is the most intelligent virus ever in the history of man kind. If you do not want to die from COVID 19, you must vote Democrat, that is the only way you survive from this virus. All people who died from this virus are pro Trump and pro republican.

    • J V lol I seen a stupid comment saying that the coronavirus was just a very stupid virus which does not know what its doing.

    • @Fighter Pilot Addressed this already. Outdoor transmission is extremely low, even without masks and social distancing, and the media explicitly said multiple times that was why it was not criticized.

  12. This is another reason why Bunker boy needs to go to prison

    • Actually in reality Democracts support abortion,Transvestites and HOMOSEXUALS. *FACT

    Oh my God,, please pray for the people of Peru. Together we must ask God to bring them qualified Dr’s, nurses, medicines, masks, etc from the international medical community… This is heartbreaking.

  19. A doctor abandoning his community, although terrible. Isn’t nearly as appalling as a President abandoning his country.
