Brazil registers more than 97 thousand cases of Covid this Thursday

Brazil recorded 97,221 cases of Covid and 190 deaths, this Thursday (13). As a result, the country has lost 620,609 lives and 22,815,827 people infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.

Moving averages of cases and deaths are on the rise. The average number of infections now stands at 60,072 a day, 634% higher than two weeks ago. The average number of deaths reached 126 per day, 29% higher than two weeks ago.

The explosion of cases occurs in the midst of the expansion of the omicron in the country, which is much more transmissible than previous variants.

The country’s data, collected up to 8 pm, are the result of a collaboration between Folha, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and disseminate figures related to the new coronavirus pandemic. The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the state Health Departments.

Vaccination data against Covid-19 is affected by the hacker attack on the Ministry of Health system, which took place in December, with several states without update. In any case, the information was at least partially updated in 15 states and the Federal District.

Brazil registered 856,055 doses of vaccines against Covid-19, this Thursday. According to data from the state health departments, there were 60,642 first doses, 247,711 second doses. In addition, 1,881 single doses and 545,821 booster doses were recorded.

In all, 161,836,379 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil – 140,519,292 of them have already received the second dose of the immunizer. Added to the single doses of Janssen’s vaccine against Covid, there are already 145,151,664 people with both doses or with one dose of Janssen vaccine.

Thus, the country already has 75.87% of the population with the 1st dose and 68.04% of Brazilians with both doses or with one dose of the Janssen vaccine. Considering only the adult population, the values ​​are, respectively, 99.84% and 89.55%.

Even those who received both doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine should maintain basic care, such as wearing a mask and social distancing, experts say.

The initiative by the consortium of press vehicles occurred in response to the attitudes of the Jair Bolsonaro government (without a party), which threatened to withhold data, delayed newsletters about the disease and took information from the air, with the interruption of the disclosure of the totals of cases and deaths. In addition, the government released conflicting data.
