The national daily data are from the consortium of press vehicles, formed by Estadão, G1, O Globo, Extra, Folha and UOL in partnership with 27 state health departments, on a balance sheet released at 8 pm. According to government figures, 11,357,521 people are recovered.
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. The unprecedented initiative is a response to the Bolsonaro government’s decision to restrict access to data on the pandemic, but it was maintained after government records continued to be released.
This Sunday, the Ministry of Health reported that 31,359 new cases and 1,240 more deaths were reported by Covid-19 in the past 24 hours. In total, according to the folder, there are 12,984,956 people infected and 331,433 deaths. The numbers are different from those compiled by the press media consortium mainly because of the time of data collection.
