According to the Ministry of Health data, with the detection of 86 thousand 979 new cases in the last 24 hours, the number of cases increased to 13 million 100 thousand 580 and the number of those who recovered to 11 million 558 thousand 784.
4 thousand 195 people died in the country in the last 24 hours. This figure was recorded as the highest number of deaths from COVID-19 in one day in Brazil since the beginning of the epidemic. The number of deaths in the country increased to 336 thousand 947.
Brazil, a South American country with a population of more than 210 million, is the country most affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, after the USA.
Brazil has been going through difficult times in recent weeks, both due to occupancy in intensive care units and the spread of the more contagious type P1 of COVID-19, which is thought to have emerged in the country’s Amazonas state.
