The Brazilian Ministry of Health announced yesterday Sunday that in the previous 24 hours 72 patients died due to complications of COVID-19 and 5,126 cases of SARS-CoV-2 were confirmed.
With 612,659 dead after the new coronavirus pandemic broke out in its territory, Latin America, the largest country with a population of 212 million, has the second heaviest death toll in the world in absolute numbers, behind only the United States. Laboratory-confirmed cases have now reached a total of 22,017,276; Brazil remains third in the world in terms of the number of reported viral infections, behind the US and India, at least according to official figures.
However, as vaccination progresses, the rolling average of deaths per 24 hours in the last 14 days has fallen below 230, the lowest level since 26 April 2020, or a month and a half after the first death was reported; 3,000 a day when the pandemic had reached its peak in April this year.
