In April of this year, the consortium of press vehicles stopped updating vaccine information on weekends and holidays. The measure aims to avoid inaccuracies in the numbers reported to the reader.

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

The initiative by the consortium of press vehicles occurred in response to the actions of the Jair Bolsonaro (PL) government, which threatened to withhold data, delayed bulletins about the disease and withdrew information from the air, with the interruption of the disclosure of total cases and deaths.
