Angola: COVID-19 Claims 12 Lives in First Third of July

Luanda — At least twelve people died from Covid-19 in Angola, when the month of July counts only 11 days (first third), overcoming the figure of the whole month of June, in which nine citizens died.

With the exception of a 25-year-old patient who the Minister of Health, Silvia Lutucuta, said in one of the press conferences, had apparently been out of danger, most of the victims of the new coronavirus always had a chronic disease associated with it, besides Covid-19.

The average daily death rate this July, which has not even arrived in the middle, is one death per day.

Diabetes, hypertension, cancers and, above all, complications of diseases of the aggravated respiratory forum, are other clinical manifestations presented by the deceased.

This Saturday, the Minister of Health, Silvia Lutucuta, announced two more deaths, involving citizens of 62 and 64 years of age, respectively. One was in the Sagrada Esperança clinic and the other in one of the reference treatment centers. Both had severe respiratory conditions.
