On Sundays, Mondays and holidays, the pandemic data are usually smaller, due to notification delays in the health departments, which, during these periods, have a reduced workforce.

Moving averages of deaths and cases are declining, but part of the decrease may be associated with the current holiday. The average death rate is now 261 lives lost per day, and that of infections is 10,073 daily. The values ​​represent drops of, respectively, 31% and 16% compared to data from two weeks ago.

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

Covid-19 vaccination data, also collected by the consortium, were updated in 22 states.

Brazil registered 476,630 doses of vaccines against Covid-19, this Tuesday. According to data from the state health departments, there were 71,263 first doses and 273,707 second. 609 single doses and 131,051 booster doses were also recorded.

In all, 154,807,386 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil — 111.738,021 of them have already received the second dose of the immunizing agent. Added to the single doses of the Janssen vaccine against Covid, there are already 116,267,212 people with a complete vaccination schedule in the country.​

Thus, the country already has 72.57% of the population with the 1st dose and 54.50% of Brazilians with a complete vaccination schedule. Considering only the adult population, the values ​​are, respectively, 95.51% and 71.73%.

Even those who completed the vaccination schedule with two doses must maintain basic care, such as wearing a mask and social distance, experts say.

The initiative of the consortium of press vehicles took place in response to the attitudes of the Jair Bolsonaro (non-party) government, which threatened to withhold data, delayed bulletins about the disease and took information off the air, with the interruption of the dissemination of total cases and deaths. In addition, the government released conflicting data.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
