Amazonas state in northern Brazil on Thursday announced a 10-day curfew to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus, as cases soar and hospitals run out of beds and oxygen.
Desperate relatives, protesting outside hospitals in the state capital of Manaus, said patients had been taken off ventilators as oxygen ran out.
"The line for beds is growing by a lot - we have 480 people waiting now", Brazil's health minister Eduardo Pazuello said in a Thursday night broadcast on social media.
Brazil's Amazonas State is airlifting 60 premature babies from hospitals in Manaus for emergency care in Sao Paulo, a distance of 3,875 kilometers (2,407 miles), because of a shortage of oxygen supplies in health facilities in the state.
Amazonas produces "significant quantities of oxygen, but now our people need oxygen and solidarity", said Lima, who added some patients would be transferred to other states.
Patients in overloaded hospitals waited in despair as a few oxygen cylinders arrived to save some, but came too late for others.
Brazil is home to the world's second-deadliest coronavirus outbreak after the United States, and Manaus was one of the first Brazilian cities struck by a spiraling death count and case load from the first wave of the pandemic a year ago.
The country has recorded more than 207,000 deaths from Covid-19, second only to the United States.
US Can't Get More Pfizer Vaccines Before June
The BNT162b2 vaccine is now approved under emergency use in the United Kingdom and is under review for the same in the US. White House officials described to CNN the order as a "reaffirmation of the President's commitment to America first".
Images of people bringing oxygen tanks to hospitals and of patients complaining about a lack of medical assistance have angered Brazilians and augmented criticism of President Jair Bolsonaro's handling of the pandemic. The company added that Manaus' remote location presents challenging logistics, requiring additional stocks to be transported by boat and by plane.
The 7:00 pm to 6:00 am curfew will begin Friday.
The new measures challenged protesters who on Thursday morning carried Brazilian flags through the streets.
Mr. Bolsonaro has downplayed risks of the disease, saying the economic fallout of the pandemic will kill more than the virus. His son Eduardo, a lawmaker who chairs the global relations committee in Brazil's lower house, was one of the many conservatives who in December egged on their supporters to disobey local restrictions on activity.
