DAILY CALLER — Brazil has had one of the worst years ever when it comes to diseases, as the politically unstable country has dealt with the Zika virus, dengue fever, and now swine flu.
The government has started administering vaccinations for H1N1 – the medical term for swine flu – Brazil-wide. In 2016 alone, 230 people have died from swine flu in Brazil with over 70 people dying just last week according to the Brazilian Health Ministry.
To combat the spread of swine flu, in Brazil’s largest city alone, São Paulo, 1.7 million people have been willingly jabbed to avoid the illness. The host city of the 2016 summer Olympics, Rio de Janeiro, has 4 million shots good to go for whoever doesn’t want swine flu.
