Since the beginning of the pandemic, cases have added up to 13,279,957, after 86,652 new positive diagnoses were registered from Wednesday to Thursday.

The number of recovered patients now stands at 11,732,193. People with an active case, monitored by health agents, amount to 1,202,639.


The list of Brazilian states with the highest death tolls for COVID-19 is headed by São Paulo (70,742), Rio de Janeiro (38,657), Minas Gerais (26,795), Rio Grande do Sul (21,538), and Paraná (18,492).

Those with the fewest deaths so far are Acre (1,325), Amapá (1,371), Roraima (1,384), Tocantins (2,181), and Sergipe (3,693).
