According to him, if mortality rates remain unchanged, the city will only have available graves for another "two or three months".
"Manaus was the first city in Brazil to see its health system collapse and was also the first to come out of it. And we are collapsing again in this second wave of Covid-19 assistance," Almeida said . . .
