As a result, 4,528,347 people are infected and 136,565 killed by coronavirus in Brazil, according to data from the media consortium, formed by Estadão, G1, O Globo, Extra, Folha and UOL, and done together with the state health departments.

The count of cases and deaths made by Johns Hopkins University shows that Brazil is the third country with the highest number of infected with the new coronavirus. The United States is ahead in first place, with 6.7 million cases, and India in second, with 5.2 million. Regarding deaths, however, the country ranks second.
According to the Ministry of Health, 33,057 new cases of covid-19 and 739 deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 4,528,240 infected people and 136,532 who lost their lives due to the disease in the country. figures differ from those compiled by the press media consortium mainly because of the time of data collection.
The balance of deaths and cases is the result of a partnership between the six media outlets that began to work, since June 8, in a collaborative way to gather the necessary information in the 26 states and the Federal District. In an unprecedented way, the initiative was a response to the Bolsonaro government’s decision to restrict access to data on the pandemic and remained even after the maintenance of government records.
