Why are so many babies dying of Covid-19 in Brazil?

BBC, 16 Apr 2021
Despite the overwhelming evidence that Covid-19 rarely kills young children, in Brazil 1,300 babies have died from the virus.

Experts say the sheer number of Covid cases in the country - the second-highest number in the world - have increased the likelihood that Brazil's babies and young children are affected.

Such a high infection rate has overwhelmed Brazil's entire health care system.

Across the country, oxygen supplies are dwindling, there is a shortage of basic medicines and in many ICUs across the country there are simply no more beds.
