After days suffering from shortness of breath, 49-year-old Andrelina Bizerra da Silva (the coffin holding her body pictured below) fainted suddenly.
Andreza Lima de Cruz, 25, watched as doctors on a floating ambulance motored away with her father to the hospital in Portel after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
"We know that arriving there, there's no certainty that he'll come back," Lima said. "I honestly want him to stay here. But we have to think of him as well."
