More than a thousand people have died in the country for 71 days. With the confirmation of 3,673 deaths in the past 24 h, the total number of victims of the pandemic is currently from 325.559.
In 2021 alone, more Brazilians died from the infection than the number of victims in the UK throughout the pandemic. According to data from the University Johns Hopkins, a reference in the covid-19 data in the world, only three countries had more deaths in the entire pandemic than Brazil had this year alone. They are: USA (553,402), Mexico (203,210) and India (162,927).
In the last 24 hours, 89,459 new cases of covid-19 were registered, reaching a total of 12,842,717 people already infected. The data does not indicate when the deaths and confirmation of the cases actually occurred, but rather when they started to appear in the databases of the states.
According to the Ministry of Health, Brazil registered 3,769 new deaths caused by covid-19 in the last 24 hours. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been 325,284 deaths from the disease.
This is the third highest number of victims ever counted by the ministry in a 24-hour interval. The record (3,869) was verified yesterday (31); on Tuesday (30) it had the second highest mark (3,780).
From yesterday to today, according to the folder numbers, there were 91,097 confirmed cases of covid-19 in the country. The total number of infected people has risen to 12,839,844 since March 2020, of which 11,239,099 people have recovered, with another 1,275,461 being followed up.

Vehicles come together for information
In response to the Jair Bolsonaro government’s decision to restrict access to data on the covid-19 pandemic, media outlets Twitter, The State of S. Paulo, Folha de S.Paulo, O Globo, G1 and Extra formed a consortium to work collaboratively to seek the necessary information directly from the state health departments of the 27 units of the Federation.
The federal government, through the Ministry of Health, should be the natural source of these figures, but the attitudes of authorities and the president himself during the pandemic call into question the availability of the data and its accuracy.
