The total number of deaths from the disease in the country reaches 151,747, according to data from the Ministry of Health.
This Tuesday, Brazil registered 749 new deaths due to Covid-19, which brings the total number of deaths from the disease in the country to 151,747, according to data from the Ministry of Health.
27,235 new cases of the disease caused by the coronavirus were also reported, with the total of confirmed infections in the country reaching 5,140,863.
The press consortium formed by Estadão, G1, O Globo, Extra, Folha and UOL raised 716 deaths and 26,675 cases in the last 24 hours with the state health departments. In all, the media reported 151,779 deaths and 5,141,498 infections from the new coronavirus.
The daily counts in Brazil return to a higher level after three days with data below the average, since, in addition to Sunday and Monday, when the numbers tend to be lower due to a damming of tests on weekends, also there was a national holiday on Monday, which consequently impacted Tuesday’s data.
Brazil is the second country with the highest number of deaths from coronavirus in the world, behind only the United States, and the third in cases, below the USA and India.
