Brazil has reported 150,998 deaths linked to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the 309 reported from Monday to Tuesday. There are also 2,400 fatal cases under investigation.

The figures are in the updated report published by the Health Ministry on Tuesday evening (Oct. 13). The document gathers data sent in by state health secretariats.

The total case tally currently stands at 5,113,628. In 24 hours, health authorities added to the statistics 10,220 new positive diagnoses for COVID-19. According to the ministry, 4,526,975 people have recovered from the disease. There are also 435,655 cases being monitored.

On Tuesdays, daily figures tend to rise as previously unreported cases are computed. The holiday on Monday (12) caused the data to grow less significantly than the average on the previous days.
