The total number of lives lost to covid-19 in Brazil has increased to 361,884. In the past 24 hours, there were another 3459 deaths recorded in the country. Yesterday (13), the Epidemic Information System indicated that 358,425 people have gone missing due to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
There are still 3,609 deaths under investigation by health teams. This is because there are cases where the diagnosis of the cause does not appear until after the patient dies.
The new data was mentioned in the daily update of the Ministry of Health pandemic issued on Wednesday evening (14). The balance is extracted from the information sent by the local health authorities.
The backlog of cases totaled 1,367,3509. Between yesterday and today, 83,513 new positive diagnoses were confirmed. Yesterday, the backlog of cases so far reached 13599994.
The number of recoveries reached 12,170,771 and the number of patients with active cases, which are monitored by health teams, 1,140,852.
Data is generally smaller on Sunday and Monday due to the small number of workers recording cases and deaths. On Tuesdays, the data tends to be bigger because on that day the balance sheet receives an accumulation of unprocessed information over the weekend.
The state with the largest number of deaths due to COVID-19 is São Paulo, with a record 85,475. Then come Rio de Janeiro (40,091), Minas Gerais (28,636), Rio Grande do Sul (22,565) and Parana (19715).
The federal units with the lowest number of deaths are Acre (1,374), Roraima (1,417), Amapa (1,432), Tocantins (2,309) and Sergipe (3,849).
As of Wednesday evening, 47.8 million doses of the vaccine had been distributed. Of this total, 31.4 million doses were applied, 24 million from the first dose and 7.4 million from the second.
